This young woman came to see Dr. Lepore, for changes to the appearance of her nose. She had been bothered by what she described as a hump, as well as the width of her nasal bridge and tip.
After discussing the various options, she decided to proceed with a Rhinoplasty. In this case, the alterations were carried out in what's known as a 'closed' approach (incisions inside the nostrils). The dorsal hump and lower cartilages were revised, and the tip reduced.
Rhinoplasty results take a bit longer to finalize, due to expected swelling. Our patient is seen just 6 weeks following her procedure in the After photos. Any remaining swelling will resolve in the coming weeks and months.
