Rhinoplasty-Nose Job: Before & After Photos

Surgeries performed by facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Lam in Plano, TX.

Case #45058


This 38-year-old Indian woman tried to use fillers elsewhere to improve her nasal appearance without success. She underwent dissolving of her fillers then a cosmetic rhinoplasty in which her nasal hump was reduced, tip refined and slightly elevated, and overall proportions balanced for her face. She gives her testimonial of her results with Dr. Lam.

Case #42713


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.

Case #44915


This 29-year-old woman had a traumatic injury leading to severe nasal
breathing issues but she also did not like her nasal hump or her hanging and
broad nasal tip. She is shown before and 3 months after functional and
cosmetic rhinoplasty with significant improvement in her appearance and her
breathing.

Case #27936

Revision/Corrective Rhinoplasty

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.

Case #42078

23-year-old Hispanic woman shown before and 6 months after aesthetic rhinoplasty and extra-large, extended-anatomic silicone chin implant. She underwent nasal tip defatting, lateral turn-in flaps, a right caudal septal extension graft, separate domal sutures nasal sill reduction, and lateral refining osteotomies. Ethnic rhinoplasty is one of the toughest to perform because typically with super thick skin there is not much a discernible difference. Over reduction of the cartilages causes the tip to look more bulbous. Pushing the cartilages too far into the thick skin may make the tip look too large. A tip graft and also a radix graft to balance the nasal tip were attempted during the surgery but it left a less than desirable result and were abandoned. She also gives a video testimonial of her life-changing experience.

Case #32301

 
 
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.

Case #39484


This 25-year-old woman was born with a larger nasal tip and large nasal hump who also sustained nasal trauma making her nose crooked and she had difficulty breathing. She underwent a septo-rhinoplasty to correct a severely deviated septum, especially in the posterior bony area, a dorsal
hump reduction, nasal tip refinement using lateral turn-in flaps, a caudal septal extension graft plus tongue-in-groove at the nasal spine, along with other refinements. She gives a testimonial about her hair results.

Case #33868


This 19-year-old patient of Dr. Lam is shown before and one year and a half following a rhinoplasty/nose job.

Case #21760

Rhinoplasty-Nose Job, Revision/Corrective Rhinoplasty

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.

Case #37966

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.

Case #31495

Her lower-eyelid procedure was done without an incision (transconjunctival) and fat was also placed into the upper eyelid and brow as well.
