Rhinoplasty Case #62

Toronto Rhinoplaty before and after by Dr. Richard Rival

Newmarket Rhinoplasty by cosmetic surgeon Richard Rival

Cosmetic Facial Surgeon: Dr. Richard Rival

Procedures Performed: Rhinoplasty

This young woman suffered a nasal fracture.  This resulted in the formation of  a large hump on the nasal bridge near the top.  There was also collapse of the bridge near the bottom where the bridge meets the tip ( the supratip area).  A reconstructive rhinoplasty was performed to help restore the nasal contour.  The dorsal hump was reduced and at the same time a cartilage graft taken from the nasal septum was used to rebuild her bridge.  The tip was set back as well  a small amount.  While most nasal humps are genetic it does seem that some form as a result of trauma.  When a nasal fracture occurs there is a lot of bleeding and swelling.  Sometimes this inflammation initiates calcification or new bone formation at the fracture site.  This may occur after cosmetic rhinoplasty as well where a small bump forms after surgery.  This is perhaps the most common reason for revision in rhinoplasty.
