  • Lil Kim is a notorious case of bad plastic surgery, so Make Me Heal was pleased to learn that the petite rapper had gotten a rhinoplasty revision.

    34-year old Lil Kim has a lot of plastic surgery in her past, including a breast augmentation, as well as considerable facial plastic surgery including a nose job, lip augmentation, cheek implants and probably other fillers like Juvederm and Restylane (Read Make Me Heal’s complete story on Lil Kim’s plastic surgery).

    Sometime after her nose job, many fans began to notice a dent in one side of Lil Kim’s nose, indicating that it had collapsed, due to a botched nose job that may have removed too much tissue, bone or cartilage.

    As Lil Kim’s nose is no longer looking like it collapsed, she has likely undergone a secondary or revision rhinoplasty to correct the damage. A revision rhinoplasty is often a more difficult procedure than the initial nose job and cartilage grafts from either the ear or rib are often needed to rebuild the nasal structure.

    Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills, says, “A botched rhinoplasty is usually due to the surgeon making the nose too small and being overaggressive with the surgery.  This may lead to the obvious appearance of a rhinoplasty, and the nose collapsing in the future.  There are many ways a skilled revision rhinoplasty surgeon may correct this issue. The nose may be rebuilt using one’s own cartilage, which makes an excellent support system. This cartilage may be harvested from the septum and/or rib.  When performed properly by an expert surgeon, a revision rhinoplasty yields great results and leaves the patient very happy with a nose that is functionally improved and more aesthetically pleasing.”

    Make Me Heal is glad that Lil Kim’s nose is looking better and hopes that her botched procedure encourages her to lay off the plastic surgery for a while.

      For the one who has had a nose job that is certainly a lot less than satifactory, it has an answer. Revision rhinoplasty is mostly a highly specialized kind of cosmetic surgery. Usually it’s useful to correct less than perfect or overly aggressive surgery that has had left the patient with structural abnormalities, breathing difficulty, polly beak, or simply a crooked nose tip. Doctors who specialise in revision rhinoplasty have obtained more training and experience in nasal surgery. It is generally more difficult and expensive than routine rhinoplastic surgery. Although botched nose jobs be the reason for a large proportion of patients, it’s of great used in treating cancer patients who have lost section of the nose and cartilege. Cartilege and skin grafts can restore support and improve the patient’s appearance. A qualified surgeon can do amazing things when it comes to correction.

      I had a nasal tip surgery in Holland. I had an agreement with the docter that he would give me a small correction since I had a beautiful nose. I just had I little too much cartilidge on my tip that I wanted corrected. The most afwul thing happened. While I was under anesthesia he decided to do more than I had asked for. He broke my nose and ruined it. To make a long story short. This man ruined my life en botched my nose. I look horrible today. My question: I live in Europe (holland) is there a docter in Europe who can fix my nose? I’ve been to so many docters and nobody can help me. So this way I am trying to find a docter who can help me. PLEASE PLEASE somebody help me, I can’t take this anymore. My life is a nightmare.
