Where is my bridge?? Do I need a revision?? See PIC.
I am currently 3 weeks post of on my primary rhinoplasty procedure. I had the procedure to remove a hump on my nose, but I am now afraid that my doctor left me with no bridge. At least my hump gave me a bit of a bridge. The picture attached was taken this mrning at exactly 3 weeks post-op and I don't see anything resembling a bridge in sight. Now my issue is this
Will I need an actual revision rhinoplasty procedure to correct/build a bridge?
Will it be an open or a closed procedure?
Any idea how long the procedure will take?
What is the recovery/downtime like for this kind of procedure? (building a bridge only and no breaking of bones etc).
Is there any other way to build a bridge that's advisable outside of surgery? (I hate the recovery process of rhinoplasty)
Please help, I am really unhappy right now. I don't know if this bridge is supposed to still be swollen beacause even if the swelling does go down, I don't see any hint of a bridge so it will come down to a flat and wide lump.
Could it be inverted-V deformity?
You can read about it here
Complications of Rhinoplasty
I had a similar procedure (hump removal) 4 weeks ago, and the doctor prevented any collapse by using spreader grafts
Thanks Ode, but that's not what Im talking about. I don't have a deformity from what I can see, I just don't thikn my bridge is defined.
Anybody else have any ideas??
Spreader grafts are usually used when a hump is removed. Your nose almost looks concave in the bridge area. I am not sure if it is the photo.
Swelling is quite normal.
