| | Spreader Graft & Hump Removal
I have visited a few doctors to get rhinoplasty, and I am a bit confused by the approach doctors are taking. My big question is SPREADER GRAFTS
Somewhere on the web, I found the following statement
"a surgeon said if someone is going to remove a hump from your nose and doesn't suggest he might need to use a graft you should run a mile."
I am getting a nosal hump removed, and two doctors have suggested using spreader grafts after removing the hump; otherwise, my nose would look very think over the years. They both have said they have large numbers of revision rhinoplasty where doctors did not place spreader grafts and people were very unhappy with thin noses after a few years. Thus, these doctors would like to take that approach.
On the other hand, other doctors have not even mentioned spreader grafts, which makes me wonder if they are truly looking for my well-being and not just trying to make a quick buck...
What do you guys think?
