Rhinoplasty Patient 41
This patient presented to Dr. Bhama with difficulty breathing through her nose, particularly at nighttime while trying to sleep. On preoperative base view, noticed the narrow nostrils and nasal valve collapse. The tip is also overly pointed. She does not desire any major cosmetic changes to her nose. Options were discussed and she elected for nasal surgery. Dr. Bhama performed septorhinoplasty surgery. On postoperative base view, noticed the improved triangularity to the nasal base as well as support of the nasal valve. The overall appearance of her nose has been preserved. She was very happy with results.
Rhinoplasty Patient 42
This patient presented to Dr. Bhama with complaints of nasal obstruction. On exam, she had prominent nasal valve dysfunction. Options were discussed and she elected for rhinoplasty with nasal valve repair and turbinate reduction. She did not want a major cosmetic change to her nose and desired a natural appearing look. Surgery went well, and she was very happy with results. Notice the softening of her dorsal hump, and subtle nasal tip refinement. She was able to breathe much easier through her nose following surgery.
Rhinoplasty Patient 43
This patient was referred to Dr. Bhama by another otolaryngologist (ENT Surgeon) for nasal obstruction. He also desired elevation of the nasal tip and refinement of the nasal dorsum. He desired a natural-looking result. Options were discussed and the patient elected to proceed with surgery. On pre-op photos, notice the severe nasal tip ptosis (droopiness). His tip was not well supported. On profile view, he has a pollybeak deformity and tup ptosis. Dr. Bhama performed septorhinoplasty using auricular cartilage grafting. Early post-op photos are shown. The nose is still edematous, but notice the substantial improvement in tip rotation. His dorsal hump has been softened, but he retains a natural, masculine appearance to his nose. He was very happy with the cosmetic result and was able to breathe much better through his nose. The result will continue to improve with time.
Rhinoplasty Patient 44
This patient presented to Dr. Bhama complaining of nasal obstruction and a nasal deformity. On examination, she was found to have a large 2 cm septal perforation. Management options were discussed and she elected for septorhinoplasty with repair of her septal perforation using adjacent tissue transfer and temporalis fascia interposition grafting. On pre-op photos, notice the irregularity of the nasal dorsum and the asymmetry of the supratip region. Profile view reveals a dorsal hump with alar retraction. On base view, her columella is twisted, resulting in severe narrowing of the left nostril (external nasal valve). Dr. Bhama performed complex septorhinoplasty surgery using the patient’s own temporalis (scalp muscle) fascia for repair of the septal perforation. Cadaveric costal cartilage was used to provide structural support to the nose. Surgery went well and the patient was very happy with results. The septal perforation healed completely. The patient’s breathing was improved dramatically and she was happy with cosmetic results. On frontal view, notice the improved supratip symmetry. Profile view demonstrates softening of the dorsal hump to achieve a more natural, pleasing profile with preservation of the supratip break. Base view demonstrates improved external valve patency and improved symmetry to the base of the nose.
Rhinoplasty Patient 45
This patient presented to Dr. Bhama with a chief complaint of nasal obstruction. Options were discussed and she elected for septorhinoplasty. Dr. Bhama performed rhinoplasty, nasal valve repair, septoplasty, and turbinate reduction using multiple techniques including cephalic trim, spreader grafts, and more. Early post-op photos are shown. Notice the preservation of her overall nasal aesthetic. On base view, notice the substantial improvement in nostril symmetry. She was very happy with results from a cosmetic and functional standpoint.
Rhinoplasty Patient 46
This patient was referred to Dr. Bhama by an otolaryngologist for possible nasal surgery. He complained of difficulty breathing through his nose. He did not desire major cosmetic changes to his nose. Options were discussed and he elected for septorhinoplasty. Dr. Bhama performed rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and turbinate reduction. Surgery went well and the patient was very happy with results of breathing and the cosmetic appearance of his nose. On frontal view, notice that the nose is straighter. Remaining views demonstrate preservation of the patient’s appearance, which he desired.
