Anatomy of a nose job gone wrong

Posted Oct 15 2008 6:09pm

The conversation usually goes down the same way: I explain that I work with two facial plastic surgeons, and the other person will lean in closer, confessing that they/their mother/a random friend was the unlucky recipient of a botched nose job years prior.  “Can your doctors help?” they whisper, eyes darting around to ensure nobody is listening, as if we are two Colombian smugglers trafficking drugs across state lines.  Now, I’m biased, of course, but even objectively speaking, Dr. Solieman and Dr. Litner are two of the finest rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty experts in the country, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone (which I do, and frequently).  Because rhinoplasty is a game of millimeters, it’s so easy for surgery to go awry in the wrong hands, and patients usually hesitate to return for–often badly needed–corrective work, having been scared away the first time.  In particularly bad cases, however, when too much cartilage has been removed or breathing has been impeded, corrective work is sadly inevitable.  Drs. Litner and Solieman document the most common rhinoplasty errors and techniques here on their blog Rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills –a fascinating read for anybody thinking about going under for the first–or second…or third–time.
