Many of my Houston revision rhinoplasty patients and revision ethnic rhinoplasty patients have thick nasal tip skin and desire a more refined nasal tip and narrower nose.
With revision rhinoplasty, the tip in a normal thickness skin patient is difficult to refine, let alone one with thick skin. Cartilage grafting, sculpting the cartilage, and thinning the skin may be necessary with revision rhinoplasty for ethnic patients with thick skin. Ultimately though, proper education and a realistic view of expectations are necessary for revision rhinoplasty for ethnic patients with thick skin.
