Patient Testimonial

“Now my nose looks like it always should have looked! I was injured while I was a teenager, and had a crooked nose and breathing problems. I was scared to get my nose fixed because I’ve seen some funny looking noses after surgery. I am so happy with the outcome! I no longer focus on my nose when I look in the mirror. Thanks, Dr. Duncan!”

I don’t like the way my nose looks but I am afraid that if I have a rhinoplasty, it will look odd. I have Native American heritage and I’m not trying to change that.

Rhinoplasty Case2

Left: 65 year old Native American woman with dorsal hump and overprojecting tip. Right: Six weeks following ethnic rhinoplasty with Dr. Duncan.

I’m a guy, and I don’t want my nose to look like a girl’s after surgery. What are the steps to make sure I keep a man’s nose?

Rhinoplasty Case3

Left: 21 year old man with nasal hump due to trauma. Right: Patient 6 weeks after rhinoplasty with Dr. Duncan.

I have a “ball” on the end of my nose. It is all I see when I look in the mirror. I may just need a tip rhinoplasty. How does this work?

Rhinoplasty Case4

Left: 23 year old who disliked her nasal tip. Right: 6 weeks after tip rhinoplasty with Dr. Duncan.

The patient disliked the bulbous tip with a cleft between the cartilages. She had no hump, so just the cartilages of the nasal tip were treated. An open rhinoplasty was performed.

I’ve heard of a “liquid” rhinoplasty. What exactly is this? Who is a candidate?

Usually the term is used for a filler injection into the nose. This needs to be done with great care, as intravascular injection of fillers can cause healing problems. Liquid rhinoplasty works well in cases where augmentation of the dorsum is needed, or a bit of tip definition is requested.
