Revision Rhinoplasty with Septal Perforation Repair
- 30 - 39
This patient had prior nasal surgery with an ENT surgeon performing the functional surgery ("inside work") and a plastic surgeon performing the rhinoplasty ("outside work"). The initial surgery was complicated by a perforation of the nasal septum. In addition, she still had problems breathing and persistent nasal deformity. Dr. TerKonda corrected all of her functional and cosmetic problems in one setting. Unfortunately, 5-10% of patients who have rhinoplasty, need revision surgery. In the after photographs, you will notice her beautiful eyes, which were not as apparent on the before photos. This is a common phenomenon. Nasal deformities distract from people looking into your eyes when talking to them.More

Dr. TerKonda is a lifelong student of rhinoplasty. He studies the patient's photos prior to surgery and makes notes. During surgery, he takes intraoperative photos of the procedure. After surgery, he documents the maneuvers on a form called a Gunter diagram. Because it takes one year to heal from rhinoplasty, he is able to refer back to these valuable documents to learn which maneuvers work and which do not work. More
