6 months after a rhinoplasty to take care of an over-projected tip and a dorsal hump (bump on the bridge) and a tethered upper lip which means that the nose was pulling the upper lip forward. Please notice that the nose is significantly smaller and more feminine after surgery, but still looks natural and fits her face. On the base view the decrease in tip projection is very obvious.
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.”
