This patient had previously undergone a closed rhinoplasty (“nose job”) in conjunction with septoplasty performed by a Facial Plastic Surgeon in Austin, Texas. The intent of the initial surgery was to treat a dorsal hump. Unfortunately, the surgery created significant dorsal contour irregularities. Based on an internet research her mother identified Dr. Weinfeld as a Plastic Surgeon in Central Texas with interest and experience with secondary rhinoplasty. She visited Dr. Weinfeld in his Austin office where they discussed revision rhinoplasty options. The patient’s goal was to have a smooth and straight dorsum, improved dorsal aesthetic lines, and tip refinement. She underwent an open revision rhinoplasty. Due to the fact that she had already had a septoplasty she only had enough cartilage to use for the columellar strut. Thus, costal cartilage was used for the remainder of the grafts. The incision was placed in the inframammary crease and was small so the resulting scar was very difficult to see. The patient was very happy with her results and subsequently her sister has elected to undergo a primary rhinoplasty with Dr. Weinfeld.
