PHOTO GALLERY – Deviated Bridge Revision Rhinoplasty San Diego


Case #12.

This patient wanted a revision rhinoplasty because she was not pleased with the results from her initial surgery. She did not like the deviation and convexity of her nasal bridge. She also did not like how the tip of her nose was over-rotated.

This patient required complex grafting using rib cartilage to help straighten her deviated bridge, adding structure and support to help improve both the appearance and function of her nose. Dr. Kolstad also recontoured the tip of her nose, rotating it to a more natural angle and tightening the columella.

Revision rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging cosmetic procedures and requires a surgeon with exceptional expertise and experience with rhinoplasty. Dr. Kolstad specializes in revision rhinoplasty and believes in the importance of reshaping the nose in a natural, elegant way that balances your other features.
