Description

This 44-year-old woman was bothered by a “pulled up ” look of her right nostril after a previous nasal surgery performed elsewhere. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated her with a reconstructive rhinoplasty using a cartilage and skin graft from the patient’s ear. During the procedure, previous scar tissue was removed to allow for repositioning of the nostril. Dr. Fishman was able to perform the procedure in the office, foregoing the need for general anesthesia and allowing the patient an easier recovery. The patient is shown 3 months after treatment, with great results and beautiful healing progress.  She is thrilled with her results, which will continue to improve and soften over the remainder of the year.

About Scars Treatments

Scars can be distracting and distressing, and can impact patients’ function and self-confidence.  We use a variety of treatments to improve the appearance of scars, using surgery, lasers, microneedling, dermal filler treatments, and anti-scar injections to remove keloid scars and soften the appearance of traumatic and acne scars.
