Rhinoplasty on thick skin
Although the skin is not changed in this surgery at all, the thickness of the skin can have a major effect on the results of the rhinoplasty. Even if the shape is the exact same, the patient with the thicker skin will have less definition on the tip of the nose as compared to those having thinner skin.
How to improve rhinoplasty result on thick skin
Firstly Dr. Kallman ensures that the tip gets the most definition. The tip support needs to be strong enough to push the cartilage through the thick skin to get a more defined nasal tip. Oftentimes, grafts are used for this purpose which can further support the tip.
