Cleveland Plastic Surgery-Case of the Week -Rhinoplasty

July 28, 2010

This plastic surgery patient from Cleveland, Ohio contacted Dr. Medalie with a complaint of nasal asymmetry. She felt that the tip of her nose was bulbous and had bulging cartilage on the right. She also was concerned with a dorsal hump and the general wideness of her nose. Dr. Medalie decided to perform an open rhinoplasty with reduction of the dorsum and nasal tip. She had refinement of the tip cartilage and a slight curve created on top of the nose to give her a more feminine appearance. Post-operatively she was very pleased with her cosmetic surgery.
