We Performed Limited Tertiary Revision Rhinoplasty

3rd Revision Nose Job We planned a simple revision rhinoplasty operation for the patient, who had undergone two nasal aesthetic operations before, in order to have a limited amount of surgical trauma.

Alar dome stitching technique and alar cartilage medial crus overlapping techniques were used. Below you can find the images of the patient before and after the operation. Link group
