Rhinoplasty Nasal Reconstruction Before and after pictures in Latham, NY, Patient 28707
This is a patient who was initially seen for recurrent sinus infections and breathing difficulty. She also desired a subtle change in her nose. Her nose was crooked and off to her right side with some contour irregularities that could be easily seen on frontal view. The profile view revealed some notching of her nostril and what is commonly referred to as a 'subtle polly-beak deformity'. This patient underwent nasal reconstruction for the breathing issue associated with her deviated nasal septum as well as a subtle rhinoplasty. On the profile view one can see a very subtle improvement with realignment of the profile of the nose and subtle correction of the nostril notching. On the angle view there is a very subtle but definite improvement in the profile and nostril orientation resulting in her nose appearing somewhat more balanced against the remainder of her facial features. The frontal view also shows a much more symmetrically aligned nose that is straight. This was performed using an endonasal or closed approach resulting in less recovery and healing.
