Revision/Corrective Rhinoplasty: Before & After Photos
Surgeries performed by facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Lam in Plano, TX.
This 50-year-old Asian gentleman is shown before and one year after a revision rhinoplasty and chin augmentation. Before, he had a silicone implant that caused a contracted, distorted nasal tip as well as an under augmented nasal bridge that showed shrink wrapping of the implant. Dr. Lam rotated his nasal tip downward to camouflage his nostrils and to create a more masculine profile that was natural in appearance. He also corrected the asymmetric nostrils. He used diced rib cartilage with Tisseel to build the bridge and a caudal septal extension graft to define the nasal tip and to lower and lengthen the nasal tip in a secure way.
This 56-year-old Asian woman had a prior rhinoplasty performed elsewhere with a silicone implant and had 2 subsequent revisions. This was her fourth revision rhinoplasty showing a contracted nasal tip, asymmetry, and a tip to bridge ratio that did not look natural. She also had collapsing nasal walls during inspiration. She underwent removal of her prior implant, lateral turn-in flaps, lateral alar wall graft support, caudal septal extension graft to derotate and project her nasal tip, nasal sill reduction, a diced rib graft to rebuild the dorsum of her nose. She is shown before and 3 months after her surgery. She should continue to look better over time.
This 25-year-old is shown seven weeks after a rhinoplasty with Dr. Lam. He had trauma to his nose from sports as a teenager and difficulty breathing from the left side of his nose and did not like how asymmetric his nasal tip, bridge, and nasal base appear. He also has a saddle nose deformity with a collapse nasal bridge.
This 40-year-old woman is shown before and 16 months after a revision rhinoplasty. She was unhappy with the appearance of her nasal tip and she could not breathe from the left side of her nose. During the procedure a left spreader graft was placed so that now she can breathe well. She also had her previous nasal tip graft removed that was causing the distortion and asymmetry to her nasal tip. Her columella that was buckled was straightened. However, she does have a small residual deviation of the nasal tip that was not entirely corrected. She also had dice cartilage wrapped with mastoid fascia and placed onto the over-resected middle nasal vault. She also had her nasal bones realigned and straightened.
This 34-year-old patient African-American gentleman is shown before and one week after a revision rhinoplasty/nose job and lip reduction. Of note, for his rhinoplasty, he underwent nasal hump reduction and osteotomies to lower the hump and to narrow the nose. He had his radix elevated with diced rib graft with Tisseel, lateral turn-in flaps to narrow the nose along with double-dome binding sutures and a caudal septal extension graft to create a stronger tip and to elevate a sagging nose. He also could not breathe well and now has perfect breathing.

This woman underwent a revision (corrective) rhinoplasty with Dr. Sam Lam after experiencing a failed attempt at previous rhinoplasty. She is shown before and after her surgery that required a hump reduction, tip refinement, and tongue-in-groove technique to improve the relationship between the ala and the columella (hanging columella).

This is a subtle revision rhinoplasty result seen better on closeup. The patient did not like how the tip was too rounded without definition (a unitip) (better seen from oblique view) and the deviation to the bridge (better seen from frontal view) as well as the fact that the tip was slightly too large for the bridge (better seen from oblique and side views). Dr. Lam underwent a revision rhinoplasty for her to separate her nasal tip to create more definition and refinement and straightened her nasal bridge along with raising the bridge slightly to match the nasal tip size. She is shown before and 5 months after surgery. She should have ongoing improvement over this year.
