Gynecomastia is a condition that affects more than a third of the total male population in the world. It does not pose a threat to one’s health but it may impose the feeling of humiliation or embarrassment which can impair one’s self-confidence.
I recently saw a patient from Enterprise, Alabama to evaluate the appearance of her nose. She had a rhinoplasty years ago that left her nose with a pinched appearance combined with a bulbous tip. Her prior surgery had been primarily resectional i.e., offending aspects of the nasal structures were cut out and removed. In addition to a clearly operated appearance, the surgery left the internal valve collapsed resulting in airway obstructive symptoms, especially with exercise. Her revisional surgery consisted of rebuilding the internal valve with cartilage grafts and reshaping the tip with suture techniques in combination with cartilage grafts. These newer Rhinoplasty techniques have been adapted from reconstruction techniques used for years to rebuild noses from trauma or cancer removal.
