Primary rhinoplasty on thick skin of the Maghreb type, by Dr. Gerbault:

  • This is what has been performed in this case, with also a Dorsal Preservation Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty the refine the rest of the nose.
  • Another benefit of structural rhinoplasty is to efficiently avoid tip deformities with smiling.
  • The result is shown at 1 year post-op, and is the maximum refinement achievable on this type of skin.

Ethnic rhinoplasty on thick nasal skin

  • To have a thick skin , a wide tip lacking definition with very weak cartilages lacking support: it’s a difficult situation to achieve a good result in nose aesthetic surgery.
  • For this patient, there’s also an alar cartilage malposition, increasing the bulbous appearance of the tip. It even worsens when the patient smiles ecause of the lack of tip support.
  • In this case, a highly structural rhinoplasty reinforcing all the parts of the nose with cartilaginous grafts is the only way to significantly refine the whole nose. It’s combined with n ultrasonic rhinosculpture to refine the bony vault.
  • The result is still early at 3 months post op, and the nose will keep on refining in the next months.
