Before and 2 months after a reduction rhinoplasty to take care of a very large bump (dorsal hump) and a very long, droopy (ptotic) and bulbous nasal tip. Please notice the drastic change between the green “before” profile and the desired white “after” profile in the tracing which was accomplished with this surgery. The plan was to create a much more feminine nose for this patient.
The tracing on the right is made from the preoperative computer imaging done during the consultation. Dr. Pontell creates this tracing which he uses as a guide during surgery to accomplish the patient’s goals. This allows Dr. Pontell to get as close to the desired result as possible. Please compare the desired profile in the tracing to the actual “after photo.”
