For unsightly noses, this involves the removal of a hump, lifting and refinement of the tip of the nose, a reduction or other shape corrections of the nose.
Mostly one can operate on these findings from within the nose outwards (endonasal approach), only seldom is a small incision externally necessary. Nose corrections as a result of unsuccessful surgery or defects or resultant from an accident are called ' Secondary Rhinoplasty'. Because nasal surgery is the most difficult discipline in plastic surgery, secondary rhinoplasty puts substantially greater demands on the experience and skill of the surgeon. This often concerns the replacement of cartilaginous and osseous supporting material, which is so inserted that the facial proportions become harmonious and beautiful. Only cartilage and bone produced naturally in the body are used. Dr. Mayer rejects plastics and other foreign material because they often lead to infections, incompatibilities and rejection.
