Answer Snippet
19 days post op, will my tip drop?
Tip rotation
Apr 3, 2019
Thank you for your question.  From your photos, your nose looks great for being only 2.5 weeks post-op rhinoplasty.  Your tip rotation looks within the range of the aesthetic ideal (albeit on the upper end). It's very unlikely that your nostrils moved down, but you may be noticing their relative position to the tip.  Its normal to have a little nostril show on frontal view .  My suspicion is that it will take a little while for you to get used to your new nose, but from the photos you pos...
My nose looks too wide when I smile, what are my options?
Treatment for noses that get too wide when smiling
Apr 2, 2019
Thank you for your question.  To treat your concern, you would likely need some form of rhinoplasty.  Rhinoplasty can be very subtle or dramatic depending on the desired changes.  When it is well done, it should look natural and harmonize with the rest of your facial features.  Its normal for the nose to get a little wider when your smile. This is because the cheeks pull back on the tip and nostrils.  If the tip does not have adequate support, it cannot resist this pull and the nose wide...
Do I need to do revise my nose job and is the pus ever going away?
Infection after rib rhinoplasty
Apr 2, 2019
Thank you for your question.  Its impossible to tell from photos alone and your description if there is an infection that will need further medical attention. While infection after rhinoplasty is quite rare, it does occur and the cartilage from the rib graft is not as vascularized as the rest of the soft tissue of your nose meaning that it cannot fight off infection as easily and if there is infection in the rib graft, antibiotics don't get delivered as well to it.  It will be important f...
Do you agree that I'm not a good candidate for under eye filler?
Under eye filler
Feb 15, 2019
Based on your photos, you appear to be a good candidate for under eye filler.  It will fill the hollowing and sulcus between the eyelid and cheek.  Keep in mind that this should improve the contour and shadowing caused by the bag, but will not correct the pink/purple skin color.  Usually, this is less of a concern for people because color can be covered by makeup unlike shadowing.  All the best!
Forehead Lipoma? Will I Have a Disfiguring Scar?
Scarless forehead lipoma removal
Sep 14, 2018
Not necessarily.  Traditionally, forehead lipomas have been removed via a horizontal incision placed directly over the lipoma.  Meticulous closure results in a hopefully inconspicuous scar.  The size must usually be about the diameter of the lipoma.  I see patients from all over the world who don't like the idea of a scar on their forehead and I remove the lipoma via 2 small incisions hidden behind the hair line with endoscopic instruments.  If this is something that interests you, you can ...
How to get rid of furrow lines across my forehead?
Glabella frown lines
Jul 28, 2018
Thank you for your question.  The prominent vertical lines in the photos you posted appear to be normal and not from surgery.  These lines form over time as we age and the skin is repeatedly creased with facial expression.  Options to treat this are Botox, filler or corrugator muscle surgery.
Lipoma vs double chin?
Lump under chin
Jul 26, 2018
Thank you for your question.  From your description and photo, it is unlikely that this is a lipoma or a "double chin".  The most likely culprits would be plunging ranula (clogged floor of mouth salivary gland leading to large cyst), dermoid cyst, or thyroglossal duct cyst.  Physical exam and or imaging is necessary to differentiate.  The good news is that each of those are treatable and the mass will be gone afterwards.  Each of these are benign conditions.  Obviously, there are even more ...
Will forehead lipoma removal leave a scar?
Scarless forehead lipoma removal
Jul 26, 2018
The traditional technique for forehead lipoma removal will leave a small, usually inconspicuous scar over the area where the lipoma is located (everyone heals differently).  An alternative approach is to remove the lipoma through very small incisions hidden behind the hair line.  This does not leave any visible scars.  All the best!
Do bumps get removed instantly after rhinoplasty or does it take time to recover? 3 wks post op. (pho
Bump removal
Jul 17, 2018
Thank you for your question.  Bumps (dorsal humps) are usually a combination of cartilage and bone.  Typically, you can see the bump is gone immediately or soon after the splint is removed, but this isn't always the case.  Sometimes and for various reasons, there is swelling in this area and will make it appear that there is still a bump.  If this happens, it can last for weeks to months and gradually subside.    The skin may feel spongy when this happens.  Communicate with your surgeon a...
Diced cartilage wrapped with fascia?
Diced cartilage
Jul 14, 2018
Thank you for your question.  Its a little unusual to use diced cartilage without fascia.  Normally, you want something to keep the little cartilage fragments from scattering and to hold its shape.  Regardless, it won't really make a difference moving forward.  Unfortunately, I can't really see the nuances of your nose in the photo, but based on what you verbally explained you are seeing, you probably need to see an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to correct the irregularities.  Options may ...
Would another half syringe of filler in my lips look natural?
Lip filler volume
Jul 7, 2018
Thank you for your question.  Its not possible to answer your question with the limited information available.  Lips size should be proportional to other facial features.  Generally speaking, if you have a narrow face, nose, eyes, having fuller lips will result in unnatural aesthetic proportions.  Based simply on your photos that do not show the rest of your facial features, your lips do not appear to need additional filler.  There is a fairly broad range of natural lip fullness and is larg...
Post upper bleph wide tear, should I be concerned with deep scar? Healing tips?
Upper blepharoplasty scar
Jul 7, 2018
Unfortunately, tThe area that opened (dehisced), looks like it will not heal optimally.  If no scabbing or crusting forms without ointment, no ointment is necessary.  Its very likely that you will need a small touch up procedure, but you need to let all the swelling abate first.  There is a small chance that it looks OK once this occurs.  More likely though, you'll need to have the scar excised and re-closed.  The good news is that it is easily correctable.  Keep in touch with your surgeo...
Raised bumps post-bleph. Warm compresses? Ice? Massage? to speed up healing.
Healing after upper blepharoplasty
Jul 7, 2018
First and foremost listen to your surgeon and their post operative advice.  One week after surgery is very early and your incisions are still healing.  The area you are pointing to in the photo does not appear to be anything concerning (like infection).  At this point, there is nothing you can do to speed the healing process.  Healing is dependent on your own body's physiology.  I normally advise my patients to avoid warm compresses or massage during this early period.  Icing is unlike...
Does a Chin Implant set off metal detectors?
Chin implants and metal detectors
Dec 15, 2016
Typically the screws that are used (if at all) for chin implants are made of titanium.  Titanium is not ferromagnetic and therefore will not set off metal detectors.  They will show up on x-rays and other imaging modalities though.  You'd need to check with your doctor to ask what they used to secure the implant.
Hit by a car while riding bicycle. Multiple facial bone fractures. Will my eye socket fracture heal o
Facial fractures
Dec 3, 2016
Thank you for your question and images.  All your bones will heal just fine.  The only questions are whether healing in their current position will lead to functional or cosmetic problems.  I would need to see the full set of images to give you a more definitive answer, but it appears that your fracture is unlikely to result in any visible cosmetic deformity (cheek flattening or depression of the globe/eye).  When the floor of the eye is fractured, sometimes the contents of the eye soc...
