Cosmetic Rhinoplasty: Before & After Photos
Surgeries performed by facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Lam in Plano, TX.
This 38-year-old Indian woman tried to use fillers elsewhere to improve her nasal appearance without success. She underwent dissolving of her fillers then a cosmetic rhinoplasty in which her nasal hump was reduced, tip refined and slightly elevated, and overall proportions balanced for her face. She gives her testimonial of her results with Dr. Lam.
This 50-year-old Asian gentleman is shown before and one year after a revision rhinoplasty and chin augmentation. Before, he had a silicone implant that caused a contracted, distorted nasal tip as well as an under augmented nasal bridge that showed shrink wrapping of the implant. Dr. Lam rotated his nasal tip downward to camouflage his nostrils and to create a more masculine profile that was natural in appearance. He also corrected the asymmetric nostrils. He used diced rib cartilage with Tisseel to build the bridge and a caudal septal extension graft to define the nasal tip and to lower and lengthen the nasal tip in a secure way.
This 56-year-old Asian woman had a prior rhinoplasty performed elsewhere with a silicone implant and had 2 subsequent revisions. This was her fourth revision rhinoplasty showing a contracted nasal tip, asymmetry, and a tip to bridge ratio that did not look natural. She also had collapsing nasal walls during inspiration. She underwent removal of her prior implant, lateral turn-in flaps, lateral alar wall graft support, caudal septal extension graft to derotate and project her nasal tip, nasal sill reduction, a diced rib graft to rebuild the dorsum of her nose. She is shown before and 3 months after her surgery. She should continue to look better over time.
This 40-year-old woman is shown before and 16 months after a revision rhinoplasty. She was unhappy with the appearance of her nasal tip and she could not breathe from the left side of her nose. During the procedure a left spreader graft was placed so that now she can breathe well. She also had her previous nasal tip graft removed that was causing the distortion and asymmetry to her nasal tip. Her columella that was buckled was straightened. However, she does have a small residual deviation of the nasal tip that was not entirely corrected. She also had dice cartilage wrapped with mastoid fascia and placed onto the over-resected middle nasal vault. She also had her nasal bones realigned and straightened.
This 34-year-old patient African-American gentleman is shown before and one week after a revision rhinoplasty/nose job and lip reduction. Of note, for his rhinoplasty, he underwent nasal hump reduction and osteotomies to lower the hump and to narrow the nose. He had his radix elevated with diced rib graft with Tisseel, lateral turn-in flaps to narrow the nose along with double-dome binding sutures and a caudal septal extension graft to create a stronger tip and to elevate a sagging nose. He also could not breathe well and now has perfect breathing.

This is a subtle revision rhinoplasty result seen better on closeup. The patient did not like how the tip was too rounded without definition (a unitip) (better seen from oblique view) and the deviation to the bridge (better seen from frontal view) as well as the fact that the tip was slightly too large for the bridge (better seen from oblique and side views). Dr. Lam underwent a revision rhinoplasty for her to separate her nasal tip to create more definition and refinement and straightened her nasal bridge along with raising the bridge slightly to match the nasal tip size. She is shown before and 5 months after surgery. She should have ongoing improvement over this year.
This 34-year-old Asian patient is shown before and one week after her cosmetic rhinoplasty with Dr. Lam. She had nasal-tip refinement with a caudal septal extension graft, lateral turn-in flaps, domal sutures, and bridge elevation and refinement with diced rib graft with Tisseel. She also had a nasal-sill reduction to narrow her nostrils.
This woman is shown before and one month after rhinoplasty to correct a deviated nasal bridge, deviated nasal tip, broad and boxy nasal tip, hanging columella, overprojected (too long) and underrotated (too low) nasal tip. She had a rhinoplasty that involved shaving the asymmetric nasal bones, reducing the fullness of her nasal tip through a cephalic trim and double dome binding sutures anchored, straightened, shortened, angled and stabilized with a caudal septal extension graft.
This 27-year-old rhinoplasty patient is shown before and 5 months afterward. She had a hump reduction, asymmetric nostril correction, nasal tip refinement, and hanging columella correction using a tongue-in-groove technique. Of note, she had a traumatic scar on the bridge of her nose that she did not want changed.
This 42-year-old African-American woman is shown before and one week after rhinoplasty. Dr. Lam performed a tongue-in-groove technique to elevate her nasal tip securely and predictably along with a nasal-hump removal and nasal-tip refinement. There is still considerable swelling in the nose, especially in the nasal tip area, that will continue to dissipate in the coming weeks.
This 37-year-old Asian woman is shown before and 1 week after rhinoplasty. She had diced cadaveric rib graft with Tisseel for the nasal bridge, rasp of a small hump on the nasal bridge, lateral turn-in grafts for the nasal tip, a double dome-binding suture, tip graft, a caudal septal extension graft to stabilize and project the nasal tip with improvement in the columellar shape, and a nasal sill reduction to improve the nostril width. A lot of the details of his nasal enhancement will become more evident over time.
This 49-year-old woman is shown before and one year after deep-plane facelift, chin augmentation, rhinoplasty, and dissolving her overdone cheek fillers. Of note, she could not breathe from her left nostril despite a straight septum but had a left spreader graft placed to substantially improve her breathing. She had a small nasal dorsal hump reduction, tip rotation, refinement, and projection.
The patient is shown before and 6 months following cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty. After the procedure, you can see the dorsal hump has been reduced, the radix portion of the bridge elevated to shorten the appearance of the nose, the angle of the nasal tip slightly elevated but still at a masculine angle, and the nostril show improved from the profile view. The key with male rhinoplasty is to preserve and enhance the masculine appearance of the nose.
This 27-year-old Hispanic man is shown before and one month after rhinoplasty in which the nasal bridge was raised and narrowed with a carved and shaped Gore-Tex implant where most of the height was placed into the radix (upper portion of the bridge) along with nasal tip refinement by narrowing the tip through a cephalic trim and double-dome binding sutures, extending the nasal tip using a strong caudal septal extension graft and onlay tip graft and narrowing the base of the nose with a nasal sill reduction.
This 63-year-old gentleman is shown before and one month after rhinophyma reduction of his nose for a condition that he has experienced for many years that had failed dermatologic therapy. Of note, he was unable to breathe due to the weight of his nose before surgery and now after surgery is able to completely breathe. He also gives a testimonial about his experience and his results in a related YouTube video. Given the fact that he is only one month out from surgery he has a slight bit more of healing to the skin that he has to undergo.
