Rhinoplasty Revision is Possible with Rib Cartilage

Nose Procedures

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.

Revision 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.

Restoring Nasal Function & Appearance

If you are having trouble breathing or do not like the shape, size or orientation of your nose, revision rhinoplasty could offer options. The grafting process is minimally-invasive, with little discomfort or downtime. At his NYC offices, Dr. Khosh offers a wealth of experience in revision procedures so you can be assured of a successful outcome.

The first step on your road to better nasal aesthetics and functions involves a consultation with Dr. Maurice Khosh. If you are curious about the procedure or success rate, Dr. Khosh can provide answers. Call today to book your consultation and find relief with rhinoplasty revision in New York.

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
