Revision Nasal Surgery/Rhinoplasty Patient 21

This patient presented to Dr. Bhama with complaints of nasal obstruction. He underwent nasal surgery with a different surgeon in the past with partial relief of his symptoms. On preoperative pictures, noticed the narrow middle vault and the very narrow nostrils. He had substantial valve collapse during inspiration. Options were discussed, and the patient elected for revision nasal surgery. Dr. Bhama performed complex revision surgery using multiple techniques. Postoperatively, the patient was very happy with the results of his breathing. Notice the improved contour of the nose on frontal view and the more patent nostrils on base view.


Revision Nasal Surgery/Rhinoplasty Patient 22


This patient presented to Dr. Bhama complaining of nasal obstruction despite previous nasal surgery with another surgeon. Options were discussed and she elected for revision nasal surgery. She did not have any cosmetic concerns that she wanted to address. She underwent complex revision septorhinoplasty with nasal valve repair. Autologous auricular cartilage was harvested from her ear for reconstruction. Post-operatively, she recovered uneventfully and was very happy with the improvement in her breathing as well as the cosmetic appearance of her nose.


Revision Nasal Surgery/Rhinoplasty Patient 23


This patient underwent septoplasty with a different surgeon and developed a septal perforation (hole in the nasal septum). He was referred to Dr. Bhama for persistent difficulty breathing through his nose as well as chronic nasal drainage. On exam, he was found to have a 1 cm septal perforation and very poor tip support. He was also found to have substantial collapse of the nasal valve. Options were discussed with the patient and he elected for revision surgery. He did not desire any major cosmetic change in the appearance of his nose. Dr. Bhama performed complex revision surgery including septorhinoplasty, repair of a septal perforation using temporalis fascia interposition grafting, a caudal septal extension graft, and extended spreader grafts using the patient’s own auricular (ear) cartilage. Early postoperative photos are shown. Notice the preservation of the patient’s overall nasal aesthetic. His tip support improved dramatically and the septal perforation healed completely. He was able to breathe much better through his nose and was very happy with the results.


Revision Nasal Surgery/Rhinoplasty Patient 24


This patient presented to Dr. Bhama for second opinion regarding previous rhinoplasty surgery with another surgeon. She had undergone rhinoplasty surgery several years ago at which time some an implant was placed into the nose for augmentation. Over the past several years, she had noticed intermittent swelling and pain of the nose and partial extrusion of the implant. On pre-op photos, notice the partially implant extruding through the nasal tip. Options were discussed, and the patient elected for removal of the implant without reconstruction and cosmetic refinement. Dr. Bhama performed excision of the implant via an open rhinoplasty approach. Early postoperative pictures are shown demonstrating a healed scar. The patient did not desire any scar revision and was very happy with results. Her intermittent pain and swelling completely resolved.


Revision Nasal Surgery/Rhinoplasty Patient 25


This patient presented to Dr. Bhama with nasal obstruction despite previous nasal surgery with another surgeon. On exam, her tip was ptotic and she had prominent nasal valve collapse. Additionally, she had chronic sinus disease. Options were discussed, and she elected to have revision nasal surgery. Dr. Bhama performed septorhinoplasty using cadaveric costal cartilage grafting, nasal valve repair, turbinate reduction, and functional endoscopic sinus surgery. She desired a natural appearing non-operated look without major aesthetic changes. Early post-operative photos are shown. Notice the preservation of the patient’s overall nasal aesthetic with a natural appearance and subtle rotation of the nasal tip. On base view, there is improvement in nostril symmetry and internal nasal valve patency. Her nasal breathing was dramatically improved and she was very happy with aesthetic results.


Revision Nasal Surgery/Rhinoplasty Patient 26


This patient presented to Dr. Bhama with a chief complaint of nasal obstruction. He had previously had nasal surgery with another surgeon, which temporarily helped his symptoms. Options were discussed and he elected for septorhinoplasty surgery. The surgery went well, and early post-operative photos are shown. Notice the improvement in his tip rotation and nasal valve patency. He was very happy with results. The swelling will continue to improve with time.
