How are Revision Rhinoplastys Performed in Baltimore?
A revision rhinoplasty may begin with an incision at the columella, as well as small internal incisions to allow the repair of the nasal skeleton. This approach is used when there is significant scar tissue from previous surgeries. Dr. Papel and Dr. Kontis then restore the lost structures using cartilage grafts. The cartilage can come from the nasal septum, the bowl of the external ear, and in extreme cases, rib cartilage may be harvested. This is only if there is a significant loss of cartilage or bone, and the surgeons use a technique the leaves minimal to no visible deformity.
This procedure usually lasts between 2-3 hours, and patients experience little discomfort. Recovery time is usually about 1 week and the columellar incision heals very well with virtually no lasting scar.
You will discuss the surgical approach, and the need for cartilage grafting at your consultation with Dr Papel or Dr. Kontis.
