About This Case On Realself

25-34 year old woman treated with:

  • Revision DCF Rhinoplasty. Patient had previously undergone primary rhinoplasty 8 years ago. Following surgery, she had developed nasal tip collapse with loss of projection.  She also developed a prominent right alar groove.  The nasal bridge was re-established utilizing a DCF graft.  The nasal tip required extensive reconstruction due to previous over-resection of her septum.  Septal extension and columellar shield grafts from rib cartilage were used to provide support and tip projection.  Bilateral alar rim grafts were placed to support the alas.
  • Results: Immediate.
