Patient Story: This patient is a young Woman from north Austin. She had suffered a cheerleading injury that resulted in altered nasal shape and deviated nasal septum. She underwent a septoplasty by prior to coming to see Dr. Weinfeld. While this surgery improved her breathing somewhat, it was not normal and the shape was still problematic. She underwent a rhinoplasty by Dr. Weinfeld. Costal cartilage was used as graft source for the procedure due to the fact that septal cartilage was not available (prior septoplasty). This patient was extremely pleased. It is interesting to note that here recovery was so rapid that she was able to walk as a runway model in a fashion show the day her splint was removed (her brother is a fashion designer and was participating in a charity fashion show). This case highlights the important fact that if you are going to undergo a septoplasty, but believe you may later want to undergo a rhinoplasty, find a surgeon like Dr. Weinfeld who is experienced with both, board certified, a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, and The Rhinonplasty Society.
