Nasal contractions is a deformity from both the inside and out-side the nose caused by the contraction of scar tissue or the formation of capsules after a patient has undergone repeated rhinoplasty or surgeries with silicone implant.
Today, I am going to show a case of revision rhinoplasty of nasal contractions.
This revision has conducted by Dr. Cho Bae Jung
She did a rhinoplasty using silicone implant several years ago.
But, recently, a problem happened that her nose changed to short and can seen her nostrils too much.
To resolving this problem, should make nose longer. This is main point
For elongate her shortened nose, used her rib cartilage.
Rib cartilage is a good material for revision of contracted nose.
Because it has enough cartilage to use for nasal bridge and tip. And also has a good strengthens to stand too.
As you can see, after her revision surgery, her nose elongated to ideal lengthiness.
And her facial profile is also better than before.
Therefore, Her face look much better than before.
She felt so happy after this nose revision surgery.
When do revision of nasal contractions, there is one thing must consider.
It is nasal skin elasticity.
In a case of nasal skin has weak elasticity, do not make it too longer.
If not, infection, retraction, skin problem etc. can happen.
And the other important to consider is, never use silicone implant again.
Because silicone is one of factor which can make nasal contractions.
