I accidentally looked at some of the before photos for the reconstruction and it made me feel so sad for those patients; I can't even imagine what they went through. It also made me second guess my desire for rhino. :(

I sort of don't like his primary rhinoplasty/revision noses :| They are too pointy for my taste.

He does do amazing reconstructive work =D>

I agree he does do great revision work and reconstruction. Do you recommend him over Burget for someone seeking a second revision (basically have a polly beak)? I live in the northeast so it would be easier to see Burget.

thanks

Yes I'd like to know more about Burget too!
Pixi on this forum has just consulted him so I'm curious to hear how it went :mrgreen:

well I have extensive background with both....Burget is certainly the guy for major reconstruction if your nose is missing or parts died.....But Menick is more major roconstruction and refining.....

OK I had a good consult with Dr B but for various reasons he probably isn't the doc for me, although I have seen in person a very good revision result from him. But only one so far.

In sum I think that I'd get a similarly good revision with a number of other highly skilled revision docs, including Menick. B was honest and generous enough to say so himself, although he is prepared to revise my nose.

B can clearly do good revisions but his absolute wizard skills seem to be, as gunternose points out, to do with replacing lost skin and tissue or other major reconstructive issues. And gunternose should know as he's had extensive surgery with both and I've only had a consult.

PM me if you want more details.

I'll look up Dr. Burget since I'm on the east coast. I sent pictures to Dr. Menick and he said the pictures weren't great, but based on what he saw, he wouldn't recommend further surgery. I don't think the pictures I sent him do me justice. It would be a big expense for me to fly out to Tucson, but I'm thinking about it. Are there other good surgeons close to Tucson that I could consult with as well? I'm amazed with the work that Dr. Menick did on patients with facial deformities. My case is difficult since I had my alar base reduced and would like to get some of the width back. Since Dr. Menick specializes in building up noses (so I've read) I was hopeful he could do the same for me. Are there any other doctors who can fix facial deformities like Dr. Menick? Thanks SB

Reconstruction surgeons have significant advantages in revision rhino because these surgeons rebuild the structural framework of the nose which is seen commonly in revision rhinoplasty
skin flapping is not seen typically in revision rhinoplasty

Syndicate, Does this mean I'm screwed? I've read incisions can be made inside the nostrils in order to gain a few mm. I'm not sure if they add skin grafts inside the nostril or not. Thanks for the reply. SB
