I am thrilled to hear from you thank you very much for your reply which was absolutely wonderful to read and gave me alot of hope. Dr. Jung i would like you to elaborate a bit more on what you mean by local nasal septal mucosal flap? does that mean that it is possible to add/stich skin to my collumela? I am also suffering from severe notching on my left nostril and it looks really ugly.I have viewed a picture where you were successful in fixing a notch. I was very impressed and would like to know how you manage to fix a notch? Can the sides of my nostrils be pulled down?
I am extremely relieved now Dr. Jung that you told me that my case is very common to you and not unique and that major projection can be acheived. I am looking very forward to meeting with you. However i have to mention that unfortunatley i had my last revision on the 6th of January 2003 and i understand that i cant perform surgery prior to a year but i had to correspond with you after viewing your site to know whether you would be able to help me and hence i can start planning on coming to see you for a consultation in August after i finish college. Dr. Jung how long do u recommend i better wait in order to acheive a successful revision how long would you want me to wait?
I look forward to sending you my pictures as well in the upcoming days however if you think that i dont need to send them now and better send them in a couple of months after the nose has completely healed then ill be willing to wait...even though i doubt my nose will change any better it will only get smaller and more deformed :(
You gave me hope Dr. Jung and i thank you deeply. I really hope i can rebuild my nose again and not just minor augmentation but major augmentation to bring part of my old look and self back. I would like to better understand the flap point you mentioned and would like to know how you can fix a notch if the nose is too short from the sides to cover the nostril. I also unserstand that you will be using rib cartilage to add length because you seem very experienced with that but will that be enough or will it be possible to add other material as well?
Please forgive my long email and many questions.
thank you very much Dr. Jung
awating your reply
>I have lots of experience in contracted nose which could be happened after several operations infection and hypersensitivity reaction of implants.
>Contracted nose means shorter narrower and harder nose. That kind of nose needs lengthening elevating and widening. Sometimes some skin problem could be happen because of skin shortage espicially in columella area. We could treat it using local nasal septal mucosal flap. If you send me your pictures I would be able to give you more information. Furthermore I will show you similiar case to you.
>And when Ms. Choi answered maximum augmentation is 1 Cm she was talking about average augmentation of Asian. Extreme projection is surely possible.
>Please contact us if you have further inquiries.
>Looking forward to hearing from you again.

>>Dear Dr. Jung after viewing your website i was stunned with your skills and excellence in revision rhinoplasty. I am a Canadian and have had 2 revisions so far i am very depressed with my current nose and am hoping that you would be willing to help me. I naturally had a very big nose that was made too small and short it does not blend with my other features but distracts from my other features. I have a long face and big features that fit my big nose but now with such a small nose my whole face is disproportionate and i am very depressed. I have extensive nostril show they are assymetrical and my bridge is so narrow and short i need my bones outfractured i need extreme projection/extension i need width and length is this possible Dr. Jung? Is there a limit to how much projection and length one can acheive?
>>After viewing the pictures on your website i found alot of cases that you are very familiar with and are skilled with in fixing i am hoping you can tell me if what im asking for is possible and realistic. I dont want the perfect nose Dr. Jung i just want a bigger nose that fits my face.
>>Dr. Jung is there anything such as adding skin to the collumela by stitching it so i can be able to add projection to the nose hence make it bigger and longer?
>>I am very sorry for my long post but its just that your site was very captivating and hopeful and im willing to do what it takes to get things right this time if i have to come to Korea for a consultation only so you can examine my case i am willing to do that in August.
>>Looking forward to hearing from you
