Hello Dr. Lam,
I am in the process of identifying a surgeon for a revision rhinoplasty. I believe my original surgery was an improvement but that there is still room for significant improvement with some adjustments.
I've been doing research on possibly having my surgery abroad as I used to have typical AA/ Southeast Asian nose. I could not find American based surgeons that had great pictures of successful AA rhinoplasty, in fact some of what is posted on the internet scared me. The pictures I found on your website were successful but seemed to be very subtle. I found several surgeons in southeast asia that had performed beautifully sculpted noses on women that had noses like my own. Many of them suggest an alar trim of the nostril, (along with Gortex implant and tip refinement) which is what made a significant difference in the rhinoplasty. It seems as though alar trim is not typically practiced in the US, but I hoping to find a American based surgeon that has experience with this procedure. Please let m eknow if you have experience with this procedure.
