Rhinoplasty

Description

19 yo woman who was unhappy with the dorsal hump on her nose. She suffers from allergies and frequently has airway obstruction and difficulty breathing through her nose. Examination demonstrated a moderate dorsal hump, a widened tip, and leftward septal deviation at the level of the internal nasal valve. Three month post-operative photographs show results of an open rhinoplasty with dorsal hump reduction, submucosal septal resection, placement of spreader grafts, cephalic resection of the lower lateral cartilages, a small resection of the caudal septum, placement of transdomal and interdomal sutures, use of lateral crural mattress sutures, and lateral osteotomies. Post-operative breathing is improved. There is still some swelling in the tip, which will become more refined over the next several months.
