Dear Dr Bermant,
I have had two consultations with a reknowned surgeon on the UK. He has said that my conchal bowls need addressing, and that he would strongly recommend removal of cartilage for long lasting results. I was wondering whether cartilage removal increases the likelihood of complications or over correction (I really don't want an over-corrected look)? Will this increase the recovery time also?
I should add that the surgeon I have spoken to generally uses a minimalist suture technique, removing cartilage only when necessary.
Many thanks for your time, I think it is always best to get information from various sources before making a decision.
