Before and 4 months after reduction rhinoplasty. This patient had a significant bump (dorsal hump) with a very bulbous, droopy (ptotic) tip. As you can see from the pre op computer imaging tracing, the goal was to shorten the long and droopy nose and remove the large bump. Narrowing the bulbous tip was also one of the goals of the surgery. On the front, diagonal and base views, you can see the narrowing of the tip. Overall the result is a much more feminine and prettier nose.
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.”
