What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Have you ever seen a bad nose job? You would know if you have because, unfortunately, the mistakes made by an inexperienced or unskilled plastic surgeon are obvious. Revision rhinoplasty is a nasal plastic surgery performed when problems occur after the initial surgery. For many people, revision rhinoplasty is necessary to restore the function of the nose or to fix aesthetics aspects of the nose that were not to satisfaction from the last rhinoplasty.
When Does Revision Rhinoplasty Need to Be Performed?
In a small number of cases, the initial surgery doesn’t give the client the results they want. In secondary rhinoplasty (or revision rhinoplasty), there is a cosmetic reshaping to clear airways or improve the look of the nose.
Is a Revision Rhinoplasty More Risky?
Sometimes a revision rhinoplasty can be riskier because the nasal support structures have already been altered. Sometimes cartilage grafts must be used to replace the structure of the nose to give the final desired look and comfortable, natural feel.
Am I a Candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty?
Previous patients that may not have been good candidates for revision rhinoplasty before may be able to undergo the procedure thanks to new techniques and methods that were not available even a few years ago. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty is to speak with your plastic surgeon.
