Dear Rosec,

Do you have redness/pimple on the tip of nose? If yes, did you receive an implant during your rhinoplasty?
If no implant was placed during surgery, there is no need to worry. The pimple will go away. However, if an implant was placed this could be implant infection. In that case,...

Hello

Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding green phlegm from throat after 5 days of rhinoplasty operation.

No doubt green coloured phlegm in indicative of infection but in operations of nose and paranasal sinuses, we are applying nasal packings may be of merocoel or gauge to...

My nasal septum is crooked, it actually seems broken as it does not join with nasal bone which makes my nose looks slanting to one side. how can this be fixed?
I got rhinoplasty done 6 years back, the earlier nose was slanting too but it did not seem broken.

Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for the query.

On reading your history I would want to say that, if you are feeling any new depressions/ lack of joint uniformity in the nose, you may need a review on the condition, probably with an x XXXXXXX and further tests.

You may need a revision Rhinoplasty in these...

Hi, I am researching open and closed rhinoplasty, 2 doctors told me my results would be best with an open approach and 2 doctors told me a closed approach . One doctor is strictly against the open approach and stopped it completely I am not sure which way to go . I would love to have it done closed but my tip is assymetric and my bridge is wide . Which approach would be best for me ? I know not to choose a doctor based on technique but I feel that depending on the nose one approach may give a better result .

doctor1 MD

Hi, Thanks for using XXXXXXX

If the deformity is less then closed rhinoplasty is better and if the deformity is more which cannot be corrected by the closed one then open rhinoplasty is better.

In closed, incision is not seen externally and a visible scar is avoided. So for cosmetic purpose this...

I had a rhinoplasty back in 2009 and I am not completly pleased with the results due to my skin thickness. I have seen several doctors since to undergo a revision rhinoplasty and they all agreed that there is no need for a second surgery. I would like to know what would my others options to get a higher definition at the tip. Is it possible to cut some of the skin around the nose and then stretch what is left and stitch it so the nose becomes more defined?

doctor1 MD

Dear user, I feel that the best option for you is to focus on the symmetry of face and the nose. Symmetry defines beauty for your brain and the minds of all people and society. This is a fact. If you work on the tip, you might not be satisfied. Think. Think. think. It makes sense to work on the...

Rhinoplasty heals slowly..It takes time to achieve the best result. It might be soft tissue edema which will disappear after sometime.Dont indulge in contact sports to avoid injury.

I have a question with regards to eye discharge. My son had a rhinoplasty the end of November 2010 and three days later started developing burning eyes and for the past two months, he has been having yellow dishcharge. In the morning they are closed shut with this discharge. He also suffers from seborrhea. He was finally given an antibiotic (Vigomax) for a week, but he still has the discharge. Please help, I am worried

doctor1 MD

retrograde infection from nose is possible. should take systemic antibiotic like ezythrocin 500 mg daily for 5days.clean the eye with sterile swab. apply ofloxacin eye drop .3%3times daily. neosporine eye oint ment may be applied at bed time. should improve now.

i am looking for a surgeon that can fix my sons breathing. he has had 2 nose surgery s before and still can t breathe at all he says. he is 19 years old he has a deviated perforated septum plus allergies really bad witch caused a lot of swelling and blockage. he had the surgery to correct the deviated perforated septum a few weeks before his insurance ended. this was in September 2013. he went a few months later to check up on it. the doctor said it appeared that the deviation was closed and healed. ( by the way he had the back of his right ear transplanted in his perforated septum.) but the problem is that it has never stopped bleeding ever. since all of that time. ( do you think it is because it is a transplant that it doesn t stop bleeding? ) he does not blow his nose he uses a q-tip to get the boogers out. he has used a lot of creams and oils to help the inside of his nose heal but nothing works. also the doctor said while he was in surgery he realized he could not break one of the bones behind his nose so that he could breathe on one side. i asked why not? he said because my sons skull was not shaped right from the inside. so it was odd shaped. and he feared if he did break it that since it was so deep. he might make his skull collapse. i am not sure this is even true because i never saw a picture or x-ray. but my question here is he has medicade full coverage. who can preform a difficult surgery to help him. his nose is swollen again because of allergies and he can t breathe at all. he take the allergy shots to help cure the allergies since he was 9 years old and allergy prescriptions, eye drops excreta. had 2 surgery s already and still can t breathe. he just wants to breathe. is there a highly highly highly qualified doctor the specializes in this field? that will except medicade? we have utah medicade.
