Hi there, I am considering rhinoplasty. I have been to several consultations in London, however I have quite a specific issue and haven’t yet found a surgeon that I feel confident with. I want to change the dorsal hump, I also want to refine the tip of my nose, however the issue is that on the tip of my nose – off center I have a growth – one that I have had since my early teens, and I am now 28 years old now. I have had the growth looked at by 3 different dermatologist and they are all very confident that it’s a benign cyst/ skin lesion. Please see photos attached. When discussing the removal of the growth I was told that I would require open rhinoplastly and that the options for removing the growth where : 1) cutting out the growth with an elliptical cut that would then require sticking to close the wound, however I was told that due to the location of the growth, in order to close the wound the skin would be pulled and this would result in nostril deformity – which of course I do not want
2) The other option suggested was skin graft, removing the growth with a margin and grafting skin from behind my ear over the space created by the removal – with this I am worried that the skin grafted will be to obvious and perhaps leave too much scaring.
I would really appreciate your opinion on the matter, perhaps you a have another approach to delivering the best possible result.
Thank you, best Regards Val.
