revision rhinoplasty with silicone implant removal

Postby rhyniou » Wed Oct 14, 2009 1:33 pm

Hi Dr. Nassif,

I am an Asian Male with a L-shaped silicone implant I had gotten done in Asia. Needless to say I'd like to have it removed and replaced with diced cartiledge wrapped in fascia. My question is, have you ever done a revision like this, where you remove the implant and immediately perform another augmentation? If so, how does the computer imaging work and how would I visualize the final results?

Thank you.

Hello,

I have performed many revisions like this in the past. I use diced cartilage wrapped in fascia all of the time. In order to do the computer imaging, I would have you come into the office and I would take photos and put them right up on the computer where I have a program that allows me to give a rough idea of what the result will be. I work with you on that to determine exactly what you would like to get out of the procedure. I would be happy to take a look at your current photos. If you have any please send them to Lisa, my patient care coordinator at Lisa@spaldingplasticsurgery.com. You can also email her to schedule a consultation. Thank you very much for your inquiry, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Yes I have the same problem. I had a surgeon put a silicon implant in my nose by making an external scar down the front outside of my nose. Needles to say, I have a inch long scar and also a hollowed indentation where the implant used to be.

Can this indentation be removed along with giving me a more projected tip. I realize nothing can be done for the scar.

THanks

Hello,

I would really need to see your photos and/or perform an examination to give you the best advice. It is possible to fill in the indentation. Increasing tip projection is a separate issue, and it is definitely attainable as well. If you wish, you may send any photos to Lisa, my patient care coordinator at Lisa@spaldingplasticsurgery.com and I would be happy to evaluate them for you. Thank you and best of luck to you.
