Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty,  also referred to as secondary rhinoplasty, is a surgery that is performed on a nose that has been operated on previously or on a nose with nasal deformities.

Revision rhinoplasty is more complex than traditional rhinoplasty (primary) as the surgeon will have to work with prior scar tissue and other anatomical details that are not present when a patient undergoes their first nose job.  Often times the surgeon who did the primary rhinoplasty achieved the results the patient was looking for at the expense of the underlying structural support of the nose.

How To Tell If You Are A Good Candidate For Revision Rhinoplasty

Only a qualified facial plastic surgeon can determine if you are a good candidate for a revision rhinoplasty.  Some considerations that the surgeon will take into account when determining if you are a candidate;

  • Realistic expectations
  • Length of time since primary rhinoplasty was conducted (minium of 10 months)
  • Examination of nasal structures

Recovery & Expectations

Most of the recovery process is similar in nature to what you experienced during your primary rhinoplasty.  Plan to stay home from work for at least 5 to 7 days with similar bruising and swelling.  Most patients report that they are back to work and their regular lives by 10 days total time.

The goal of a revision rhinoplasty can be to improve breathing, angles, symmetry, and projection, as well as to correct a poorly performed rhinoplasty. Revision rhinoplasty requires a surgeon that has specialized training and expertise. Not all surgeons perform revision rhinoplasty and it’s important to seek a well trained and qualified surgeon to perform this procedure.
