Case 10: Revision Rhinoplasty Pollybeak Deformity

Rhinoplasty Revision – septal/ ear cartilage grafting

A young woman in her 30’s presented with nasal valve collapse and pollybeak after undergoing rhinoplasty (details unknown) in another country.  She underwent revision rhinoplasty with ear and septal cartilage grafting.  Photos from 7 months post surgery. 

Rhinoplasty is a complex surgical procedure that aims to improve the aesthetic and functional aspects of the nose. Unfortunately, sometimes the initial rhinoplasty surgery may not have been performed correctly, resulting in complications such as nasal valve collapse and pollybeak deformity. In such cases, revision rhinoplasty may be necessary to correct these issues.

 

Pollybeak Deformity

Pollybeak deformity is another complication of rhinoplasty surgery that can result in a “beak-like” appearance of the nose. This deformity occurs when there is excess cartilage in the middle part of the nose, creating a bump or hump. Revision rhinoplasty can be used to correct this issue by removing the excess cartilage and reshaping the nose.

 

Nasal Valve Collapse

Nasal valve collapse is a common complication of rhinoplasty surgery that can result in breathing difficulties. This condition occurs when the nasal valve, which controls airflow through the nose, becomes weak or narrow. Revision rhinoplasty can be used to correct this issue by strengthening the nasal valve using septal or ear cartilage grafting.

 

Why Consider Revision Rhinoplasty?

If you have undergone rhinoplasty surgery outside of the USA and are experiencing complications such as nasal valve collapse or pollybeak deformity, revision rhinoplasty may be necessary to correct these issues. Revision rhinoplasty is a specialized procedure that requires the expertise of a skilled and experienced surgeon.
