About This Case On Realself

25-34 year old woman treated with:

  • Revision DCF Rhinoplasty. Patient had previously undergone primary rhinoplasty with an L-shaped silicone implant. She had developed an implant infection and the implant had protruded through the skin on the nasal tip and was previously removed. The nasal bridge was re-established with a DCF graft and the nasal tip complex was reconstructed utilizing donor rib cartilage. The thinned, indented portion of the nasal tip flap was reinforced with temporalis fascia.

Here’s a repost of this Revision Asian DCF Rhinoplasty procedure from my Instagram account:

Caption: “This beautiful patient of mine underwent a Revision Rhinoplasty consisting of a DCF Rhinoplasty + Alar Base Reduction procedure. As you can see, her previous Rhinoplasty from another practice left her with an irregular upturned nose and a very visible dimple at the tip due to an infection from an L-shaped silicone implant (which was removed prior to this surgery and allowed to heal first). Here are her initial results from the O.R.”
