1 year post-op FFS Deschamps-Braly
« on: December 24, 2017, 02:20:37 pm »
Well I finally had my 1 year post-op appointment for FFS (Forehead reconstruction & rhinoplasty). I'm pretty happy with things but both the doctor and I agree that the tip of the nose could use some tweaking.

He said he'd do that for free and that it'd be a much simpler operation with no cast, just tape on the nose for ~ 2 weeks + at night after that for a bit. I'll of course have to pay for hospital and anesthesia but no surgeon fees. I'm definitely considering it , with all of that taken into account. Maybe next Winter.

The forehead itself, the only annoying thing was the scar and he said I did the right thing by getting hair transplants to cover it. He did show me a few other results (again) showing that the scar showing like that was not a common thing. So I guess I just got unlucky there.

Overall I'm pretty happy and feel like this has been a very good choice for me and my well being and self confidence.

I did also catch a look at some of these other results and noticed a trend of the wider nose bridge like I have now too. He said he wouldn't do it any differently because essentially it would mean not taking as much bone from the bridge of the nose and well you want that all to line up right so yeah.

In 3 weeks, I am going in for a revision to my FFS. My surgeon is also doing the revision for free.

This begs the question, Why do you or I need a revision in the first place?

My answer is that FFS is more an art than a science, and sometimes being concerned in NOT overdoing things, surgeons will under correct and see how that looks and revise later if needs be.

It seems that the FFS surgeons who take pride in their work, have a tendency to do revisions for free.

Just my opinion.

Yeah makes a lot of sense really. Good luck on your revision!
