If you have ever gone through a rhinoplasty procedure and are not happy with the results, there are options for revision. The nose is one of the most delicate facial features, which means any bad procedure can leave damage and scars. Dr. Maurice Khosh can repair this damage and restore function with a rib cartilage rhinoplasty.
How your nose looks and functions are two anatomical features that you will notice throughout every day. While appearances are important, being unable to breathe effectively or control the flow of mucus are functional issues that can lead to health concerns. From infections to nasal congestion, there are several concerns that can arise from a botched rhinoplasty.
Recognizing the problems with a previous procedure is not simply a matter of examining the physical appearance of the nose. Upon further examination, it is often discovered that extensive internal damage has occurred to supporting structures, such as cartilage. When existing cartilage is not capable of maintaining the integrity of these structures, grafting is typically the most viable solution.
Cartilage is usually taken from the septum, ear or ribs. However, the ribs are often a preferred source, as incision sites and scars are easily hidden and there is little discomfort for the patient. Cartilage from 6th and 7th rib is most commonly used because of the stable structure of this anatomical area. Dr. Maurice Khosh will always confer with his patients before making recommendations in each case.
