Rhinoplasty or Nose Job lecture

I recently attended a rhinoplasty lecture by one of the foremost rhinoplasty experts in the world. It provides me comfort and joy to know and see that I am using some of the same rhinoplasty techniques as him and attaining similar aesthetic results. I am now leaning less towards harvesting rib for revision rhinoplasty and utilizing more ear cartilage and residual septal cartilage along with the PDS plate to attain the outcomes my patients and I desire. This eliminates the need for an evident scar on the chest and less postoperative discomfort. I have been very pleased with my revision rhinoplasty results utilizing these techniques thus far and look forward to more long-term results.
