Hello, Thank you very much for the inquiry. I have provided some brief answers to your questions below.
1. It is possible on occasion to try and refracture your nasal bones and possible use spreader grafts to widen them. If it is not possible to do that, we add diced cartilage around the lateral nasal wall to thicken. I would need to see photos to give you the best advice.
2. I use the perichondrium from rib, put it under the skin and then inject diced cartilage between the bone and perichondrium and build it up slowly. It works incredible.
3. Sometimes it is difficult to revise. I would need to see photos.
4. I usually don’t refer patients out unless they want a second opinion. If necessary, I would refer to Dr. Jay Calvert, Dr. Rollin Daniels or Dr. Dean Toriumi. My revision rate is approximately 4%.
