Question

How many rhinoplasties have you performed and how many revisions? Have you done a revision on an upturned nose before?

Answer

I have carried out just over 1000 rhinoplasty interventions, and overall approximately 30% of my work is secondary interventions for a variety of indications.

Correction of upturned or foreshortened nose is among the procedures requested during second interventions. Depending on whether there is availability of cartilage in the nasal septum from the previous operations or not, it may become necessary to use rib cartilage craft to stabilise and lengthen the nasal tip. It would be valuable if you attend for a consultation to have with you some information regarding your previous surgery or surgeries.
