Secondary nasal reconstruction after old trauma or rhinoplasty surgery falls into that overlap of 1) what I enjoy doing, and 2) where we get consistently satisfying results.
This patient had a previous trauma with reduction of the fractures done appropriately after her injury.
Unfortunately, over time the deviation and airway collapse continually worsened.
Open approach, structural rhinoplasty was required to build back up her framework, including extended spreader grafts that replaced her dorsal nasal bone entirely on one side where it was badly deformed.
The swelling has begun to come down at 1 month, and experience has shown that this continues to improve quite a bit over 12-18 months, and even beyond.
