Rhinoplasty Patient 1

This patient presented to Dr. Bhama with complaints of nasal obstruction and desired refinement of her nasal tip, reduction of her nasal dorsum, rotation of the nasal tip, and reduction of her columellar show on profile view. Additionally, she requested chin implant. She underwent dual functional cosmetic septorhinoplasty with dorsal hump reduction, tongue in groove maneuver, septoplasty, and various suturing techniques. Additionally, chin implantation was performed at the same time. Early postoperative pictures were shown demonstrating substantial improvement in her chin profile on lateral view. Additionally, columellar show has been decreased evident on both frontal and profile views. Her dorsal hump has been reduced and her nasal tip has been elevated. The patient was very happy with results of rhinoplasty surgery and could breathe much better through her nose after surgery.


Rhinoplasty Patient 2

This beautiful young lady was referred to Dr. Bhama by another facial plastic surgeon for possible rhinoplasty. She complained of difficulty breathing through her nose for many years, and also desired reduction of her dorsal hump. It was very important to her to have a natural looking result that did not look “done up.” Options were discussed and she elected for septorhinoplasty and turbinate reduction. Dr. Bhama performed rhinoplasty and septoplasty as well as turbinate reduction using numerous techniques including dorsal hump reduction, tongue in groove, cephalic turn in flaps, dome narrowing sutures, causal septal extension grafting, and more. Very early post-operative photos are shown. Her nose is still swollen and will continue to improve with time. On frontal view, notice the improvement in her hanging columella. On profile view, notice the dramatic improvement in dorsal profile and tip rotation, while maintaining the patient’s overall facial aesthetic. On base view, notice the dramatic improvement in her external nasal valve collapse, and improved triangularity of the nose. The scar will fade with time. She was ecstatic with the cosmetic results and was able to notice a substantial improvement in her nasal breathing.


Rhinoplasty Patient 3

This patient was referred to Dr. Bhama by another facial plastic surgeon for possible rhinoplasty surgery. The patient complained of nasal obstruction, and also desired rotation of her tip, dorsal hump refinement, and repair of her hanging columella. On pre-op photos, notice the hanging columella and excessive columellar show, dorsal hump, and ptotic tip. Options were discussed with the patient and she elected for dual functional and cosmetic septorhinoplasty with nasal valve repair and inferior turbinate reduction. Dr. Bhama performed surgery, which went very well. Various techniques were used including septoplasty, inferior turbinate reduction, sequential hump reduction, spreader grafts, dome narrowing sutures, tongue in groove, and columellar strut. Early post-operative pictures are shown. Notice the substantial improvement in her profile including the dorsal reduction, decrease in columellar show, and tip rotation. Her nose is still swollen and will improve with time. She was able to breathe much easier through her nose and was very happy with the cosmetic outcome.


Rhinoplasty Patient 4

This patient presented to Dr. Bhama with a chief complaint of difficulty breathing through her nose. Options were discussed and she elected for septorhinoplasty. On pre-operative frontal view, notice the deviation of the dorsum to the left side. Profile view demonstrates a dorsal hump and poorly defined tip. Base view demonstrates severe deviation of the septum to the left causing asymmetry in the nostrils. Dr. Bhama performed surgery which went well. Early post-op photos are shown demonstrating a substantial improvement in the frontal view. The dorsum is now straight and the tip defined. On profile view, she has a beautiful dorsal contour and a supratip break. Base view shows an obvious improvement in her nostril symmetry. She was very happy with results cosmetically and functionally. Her breathing improved dramatically. Her swelling will improve a great deal ove the next few weeks, and the scar will continue to heal.

Rhinoplasty Patient 8

This patient was referred to Dr. Bhama for nasal obstruction. On pre-op exam, she was found to have septal deviation, turbinate hypertrophy and nasal valve collapse. On frontal view, notice the bulbous tip. Profile view demonstrates over-projection of the tip. Options were discussed and she elected for septorhinoplasty. One-month post-operative photos are shown. Notice the narrowing of the nasal dorsum on frontal view with improved dorsal lines and improved tip definition. On profile view, the tip has more desirable projection and rotation. Base view demonstrates dramatic improvement in triangularity of the tip. She was very happy with results and able to breath much better through her nose.
