Procedure

Procedure Details

This lovely woman sought out the expertise of Dr. Jaimie DeRosa, double board certified facial plastic surgeon, after having rhinoplasty surgery elsewhere on her nose twice before. Her first rhinoplasty was when she was in her 20s and then she had a revision about 10 years before going to the DeRosa Clinic. After the second nose job, she found that her nose was getting shorter and more turned up, and she also saw and felt bumps along the bridge of her nose. When Dr. DeRosa saw her in consultation, she found that the patient had very thin skin on her nose with visible irregularities over the nasal bones. There was a knuckling of the left tip cartilage, called a "Bossa", and a short nose nasal deformity, which means that the nose was turned up too much and lost length and projection. Dr. DeRosa performed revision open septorhinoplasty and used irradiated rib cartilage to lengthen the nose and correct the tip position, as well as correct the irregularities over the nasal bones.
