Our 26 year old female patient was seeking to improve her feminine facial aesthetics. She went to Dr. Rizk for a rhinoplasty, chin implant, neck liposuction and lip augmentation procedure. Dr. Rizk performed rhinoplasty through an endoscopic approach to avoid external scarring. He used the same incision for chin augmentation and neck liposuction. These two procedures combined improved the patient’s jawline greatly. Lastly, Dr. Rizk used a natural feeling implant, alloderm, for the patients upper and lower lips. The results are seen a few months after her procedures.

30 yo female with history of chemical dependency who was concerned cosmetically with her open roof deformity, saddle nose deformity (cartilaginous saddle nose) and also her wide nasal bridge. Patient underwent revision rhinoplasty but since she had not septal cartilage available, banked rib cartilage and temporalis fascia was used as a graft to correct the saddle nose.

|30 yo Hispanic/Dominican female interested in rhinoplasty. Patient is shown 4 months after rhinoplasty to remove her bump, narrow her nose and nostrils and also correct her saddle nose deformity above her tip. Ethnic rhinoplasty entails structural grafts in the tip to achieve structural support and definition. Old techniques of Excision of cartilage alone does not achieve a natural outcome. Notice patient’s nose was not rotated because patient is tall and this nose fits her face and body better. Also she is still swollen and the nose will become more refined with time.|

|25 yo with history of previous rhinoplasty and is unhappy with scooped, short nose, with nostrils showing too much and a rotated up tip. Patient underwent revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Rizk using banked irradiated rib cartilage for grafts and Alloderm to soften the edges of the grafts. Dr. Rizk does not like to use the patient’s own rib due to scarring, risks to lung and danger to patient. Banked rib cartilage works excellent and has been used for many years in patients who are collapsed and need significant nose support. Patient is shown postoperatively at 1 year.|

|25 year old Indian/middle eastern patient with typical ethnic rhinoplasty characteristics of thick tip skin, wide nostrils, drooping nasal tip and weak tip support. Patient also has frontal asymmetry of the nose. Patient underwent septorhinoplasty and nostril reduction.
