Hi feline.eyes ,feline.eyes wrote:I decided that I wanted an autologous Rhinoplasty and went about searching for a doctor who does that. Ear cartilage has limits; it can only raise your bridge minimally (limited material can be harvested due to the small harvest site). My nose is pretty flat.tobehunk wrote:
do you share wif us the whole process, like
pre ops: how did the surgeon recommend autologous graft for you. which part - rib or ear graft?
ops: is the surgery separate from the nose one? which part did they get the graft? what is the pain level? scar level? under GA or LA?
post op: how is scar n nose healing now? do you wait a few days after the graft surgery for the surgeon to shape the graft to fit? what other post op care do they provide for the graft n nose?
what is the price tat dr quote u? is it separate from the nose? will the graft grow back in your body? what are the possible implications? fever?
sorry feline eyes for the long list of questions.. hope you can oblige me.. BIG thanks!! = )
If you read my original post you would get a pretty good idea what the surgery entails.
The scar is alright and within an acceptable range, plus it will continue to fade.
There are plenty of quotes given by my doctor that are floating around in this thread. I prefer not to divulge. And yes, it is a one price thing; no hidden charges.
You can get an infection for an autologous surgery and it is bad if you do, there will be a high level of resorption. But that is due to the nature of having a surgery; being cut up. Secondary infection due to rejection will not occur due to the fact that it is an autologous implant. So once you have recovered from the surgery, you should be set for life without worries about your implant site (that is if you are satisfied about the aesthetic results already).
must thank you for making me have the drive to do autology rhinoplasty
Oh, want to ask you,any idea what's the safe period for infection free nose and chest wound? TIA~
