Chasing Perfection in the Nose: Revision Rhinoplasty
Date:4/23/2010

While the majority of patients undergoing a nose job will be pleased with the final result, there is a small chance of complications arising that will require a second procedure to correct. The realities of revision in rhinoplasty will be discussed by leading experts during two panels at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), being held at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Washington, DC, April 23-27, 2010.

New York, NY (Vocus) April 23, 2010 -- While the majority of patients undergoing a nose job will be pleased with the final result, there is a small chance of complications arising that will require a second procedure to correct. The realities of revision in rhinoplasty will be discussed by leading experts during two panels at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), being held at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Washington, DC, April 23-27, 2010.

“Secondary Deformities of the Nose – Diagnosis and Treatment” will be moderated by Ronald Gruber, MD and will include Nazim Cerkes, MD, Mark Constantian, MD, Jack P. Gunter, MD and Rod Rohrich, MD. The panel will discuss alternative methods of treating certain conditions, including nasal tip deformities, alar base and nostril deformities, the short nose and the crooked nose. “It is important to stimulate discussion and raise issues here that we know are of concern to the average plastic surgeon,” said Dr. Gruber, a plastic surgeon in Oakland, CA. “This includes, for example, debate around whether grafts or sutures are the best means to control the shape of the nasal tip, or the challenge of lengthening the side walls of the nose.”

“The Most Common Problems Requiring Revision in Rhinoplasty” will be moderated by Rod Rohrich, MD and will include Mark Constantian, MD, Rollin K. Daniel, MD and Ronald Gruber, MD. Panelists will present cases in which suboptimal results required a revision procedure, and discuss how the imperfection was corrected. “Much can be gained by experience, but there are some elements a surgeon cannot control and we will all get suboptimal results at one point or another,” said Dr. Rohrich, a plastic surgeon in Dallas, TX. Such elements include the quality of the building materials and every aspect of the healing process. “An important part of the surgical practice is how the surgeon handles such complications when they arise.”

“No one’s aim is perfect in rhinoplasty, but fortunately most adverse results are under the surgeon’s control,” added Dr. Constantian, a plastic surgeon in New Hampshire. “The surgeon has to make the right diagnosis, understand anatomy, support, and function, select the right plan, make sure it’s what the patient wants, and execute it correctly.”

A total of 138,258 rhinoplasty procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2009, according to ASAPS statistics.
