This patient had preoperative issues with a dorsal hump and large bilateral nostrils with prominent nasal tip and sought help with a reduction rhinoplasty for improvement of her nasal profile.
Total rhinoplasty was performed with correction of her bony and cartilaginous dorsal hump and reduction of length in her nostril alar size through shortening of her lower lateral cartilages. The tip was rotated slightly upwards and refined with shaping sutures to create a natural, balanced nasal profile to suit her facial features.
Post operative photos are shown at 2 weeks post operatively with scars healing well and initial swelling resolving.
This patient had pre=operative issues with significant nasal obstruction due to a deviated septum and significantly curved external nasal anatomy. While addressing the nasal airway, she hoped to modify her nasal dorsum while raising and refining her nasal tip slightly for more definition.
Dr. Ahn conducted a joint operation with his colleague, Dr. Fiona Ting - Specialist ENT Surgeon, enabling him to focus on addressing the external nose while Dr. Ting repaired the nasal airway issues.
Photos are shown at 6 weeks post op with a natural incurve of the nasal dorsum and refined nasal tip. Changes were kept to a natural result while providing a more refined profile.
This patient suffered an open nasal and facial fracture which was initially reconstructed, however due to scarring and contracture and an unstable nasal cartilage support developed a dorsal nasal deficiency resulting in loss of nasal profile.
An open total augmentation has been performed, with restoration or normal nasal cartilage anatomy and further supported with a rib cartilage graft which was taken from the patient's own rib and moulded using a custom made 3D printed template to restore a natural profile to her nose
This patient desired subtle changes to her nasal contour to reduce the appearance of the dorsal hump and create a sharper nasal tip.
By using injectable fillers, Dr. Chris Ahn can create small changes to your nasal shape that can mask irregularities and improve the overall profile in minutes.
Hyaluronic acid filler is a safe, effective way to create these changes without the downtime of an operative rhinoplasty and has the advantage of minimal swelling and no anaesthesia required
Before and after photos are shown at 2 weeks post procedure with swelling resolved. The filler is expected to last 8 - 12 months before requiring top up
