anyone has successful nasal lengthening stories to share?

Postby annalana » Mon Apr 30, 2018 4:12 pm

I am just wondering after living with the unpleasant consequences of an overly reductive primary rhinoplasty (that actually meant to be a small reconstructive procedure and not a classic cosmetic one) - did anyone manage to successfully exit the "short nose hell"? I feel like I need about 5 mm derotation of the tip that ruined my front view.

What are your experiences? How much lengthening was achieved (was the desired amount possible?)? What type of cartilage was used in your revision surgeries?

I do have a doctor that I find I can really trust with my revision, but he appears to not use rib cartilage for grafting - and I am not sure if I would be needing that one, since of the amount of lengthening required. I am only meeting him in August, but I want to be as informed as possible.

I would be really happy for pictures too, if you would be willing to share

I had my nose successfully lengthened with rib cartilage. You will most likely need this if you have had prior rhino. Choose a doctor with lots of experience using rib. Cheers

I need the same and a completely rebuild bridge.
I have been told nothing but rib as I have zero septum.
curious as to what types of grafts your surgeon will use to obtain that result.
