This is a 53 year old gentleman who had multiple prior facial cosmetic procedures elsewhere, but now comes in with two complaints: 1) difficulty breathing out of the right nostril and 2) unhappy with nasal appearance, citing it is too feminine. He wanted to improve his breathing simultaneously with conversion to a more masculine appearing nose. He specifically wanted a "Roman" nose. Although he had 3 prior rhinoplasties by other surgeons, none were able to achieve these goals until now. We performed a complex revision rhinoplasty that required using his own rib cartilage in order to reconstruct lost support and definition. He’s shown here nearly 1 year postop, demonstrating the goals achieved. Needless to say, he was one happy patient. And oh yeah, his breathing is 100% better.
