Rhinoplasty Patient 1

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 2

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.
