Abstract:   (10018 Views)
Rhinoplasty is one of the most common aesthetic procedures in the world. It is the most common aesthetic surgery procedure in Iran. Achieving complete patient satisfaction is almost impossible but improving the aesthetics and function of the nose is the aim of surgery. This report describes a 34 years old woman with a large bump in the tip of the nose after three times cosmetic rhinoplasties. The first time was done 4 years before referral to our center as a reduction rhinoplasty operation. The next two subsequent surgeries were performed for revision and correcting the dorsal irregularities and supra tip bulge. Unfortunately the supratip bulge persisted and subsequent subcutaneous injections of corticosteroids and fibrinolysin were carried out. She developed a bulbous tip nose deformity. Therefore, after a few months she was referred to our center. Surgical exploration showed a lesion in the supratip region and histopathologic examination showed a foreign body reaction and granuloma formation.
