DIGITALLY MORPHED VERSION OF FIRST PICTURE TO EDUCATE THE PATIENT HOW THE NOSE MAY LOOK AFTER SURGERY
DIGITAL MANIPULATION ALLOWS A FAIRLY GOOD IDEA OF WHAT THE SURGEON IS PLANING TO ACHIEVE FROM THE SURGERY AND IF THE SUGGESTED CHANGES ARE IN LINE WITH THE PATIENTS EXPECTATION AND ASPIRATION.
MORPHING IS THE CENTRAL THEME OF SURGICAL PLANNING IN MY PRACTICE.
IT IS MADE CLEAR TO THE PATIENT THAT THE EXERCISE IS NOT TO PROMISE THE CHANGES SHOWN ON THE SCREEN BUT TO CLEARLY CONVEY THE IDEAL OBJECTIVE AND SOMETIMES THE POSSIBLE POOR OUTCOMES.
THREE WEEKS AFTER SURGERY
1 NARROW MID-DORSUM
2. NARROW BUT FUNCTIONALLY ADEQUATE NASAL TIP
3 SOFTER AESTHETIC LINES APPROPRIATE FOR A TALL YOUNG MAN.
Failure of the posterior opening of the Right nasal cavity to canalize during development in this young adult left her nose completely blocked on the Right side. The opening created with controlled and safe technique allowed normal airway. It is quite interesting that three decades of blockage to the nasal secretion pathway did not lead to sinusitis. You can see maxillary sinus lining showing a degree of mucosal hypertrophy on the blocked right side.
Basal view of the nose is the key view while comparing the Before and After results in Rhinoplasty & Septo-Rhinoplasty. This view is not generally visible to the onlooker but it indicates that the principles of sound rhinoplasty techniques have been adhered to, successfully. It confirms the midline position of the central structure – the Septum, the symmetry and harmony of the nasal tip components and the nostrils.
