Today, We are going to show a case of revision rhinoplasty that conducted with Dr. Hwang Jee-Hoon.
This woman had a rhinoplasty using a silicone implant several years ago.
But she didn’t like her nose. Because her nasal bridge got lower than before. And her tip was not high enough.
She decided to correct her nose shape, and she got a consultation with Dr. Hwang.
Dr. Hwang checked her nose.
Her nasal septum collapsed, and need a nasal valve reconstruction to improve her nose functional problem.
To make her nasal bridge, Dr. Hwang used her own rib cartilage.
Autologous rib cartilage often used for revision rhinoplasty, and a good material to rebuild collapsed nasal septum.
And used Ear cartilage for nasal tip reshaping.
After revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Hwang Jee-Hoon, her nose shape has changed to better with natural shape.
The line from her forehead to nose tip has changed to smooth.
Note. She also got nasal valve reconstruction surgery at the same time.
The nasal valve is a passageway in the front part of the nose through which air passes when we inhale.
If this nasal valve narrowed by previous nose surgery, can feel uncomfortable breathing with the nose.
Dr. Hwang made the narrowed nasal valve wide using cartilage grafting technique.
