DR. EPSTEIN: Hi! I’m Dr. Epstein. I’m with a patient. She is 24 years old. She is around two months out from a rhinoplasty. Her concern as you see from her before photographs were of a bump. Also she smiled her tip would get pulled down and from the frontal view she was concerned about some fullness of the tip region.
She is now around two months out. We did an external rhinoplasty on her. Here she is. She is happy.
I went ahead and you can see the more refined tip. You can see the bridge has been narrowed as well. It was wider out here and now it is narrower.
From the profile view, if you come around this way, she has a nice straight look right now so it is no longer as it was before. She no longer has the bump. Give me a smile. See how the tip does not get pulled down any more. The tip now stays. The tip will drop down a little bit more as she continues to heal but overall she has gotten the result that she was looking for. You are happy, right?
PATIENT: Yes, I am.
DR. EPSTEIN: Okay, good! She as I said is just around two months out. Tip up please. This is the external incision. You can barely see it. It is really healing up nicely.
This is pretty typical for external rhinoplasty incision procedures.
