I am interested in corrective rhinoplasty surgery?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Question

My original rhinoplasty went very wrong and various 'corrections' have left me with a very unsymmetrical, uneven nose that is aesthetically displeasing.

Do you think it is possible to consider me for corrective rhinoplasty?

I have had 4 procedures. Last procedure was 3 years ago.

Answer

It is indeed possible to consider corrective rhinoplasty surgery, since there is sufficient time from the last intervention for the tissues to have settled.

It is important to appreciate that at this point in time, there is relatively little cartilage that can be used for reconfigured structural support within the nasal framework, and that it may be necessary to use rib cartilage grafts for reshaping the nose.

At the time of the consultation, it is possible to evaluate using either digital photographs or 3-D images what it is that you would like to achieve, and based on this to determine feasibility and the specific intervention required.
