: Conchal bowl cartilage question
: the_weez May 14, 2013, 04:16:35 PM
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.
