What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty that is performed after a prior nose surgery. Patients may choose to have a revision rhinoplasty if they are not happy with the results of their prior surgery. A revision rhinoplasty can also help to correct problems with breathing that persist or arise from prior surgeries.
With every revision surgery there is a decreased ability to make the nose “perfect.” This is due to surgical manipulations, grafting and scarring from previous procedures. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t possible to get a great result with a revision rhinoplasty.
What Is the Probability of Success with a Revision Rhinoplasty?
After any rhinoplasty, the nose develops scar tissue, which can make future surgeries more difficult. For this reason, a revision rhinoplasty requires specific expertise in rhinoplasty surgery.
Revision rhinoplasty is more complex than a primary rhinoplasty, so it is important to choose your plastic surgeon very wisely based on extensive rhinoplasty experience. It is important to have realistic expectations and then to look for a surgeon who has dedicated a significant part of their practice to the discipline of rhinoplasty.
That being said, the majority of patients who have revision rhinoplasty are happy with their results. The nose is very complex, and a lot of the patient’s satisfaction comes from realistic expectations about how much the nose can be improved.
Take the time to really look at your nose and decide which things about it bother you most. Try to focus on the major issues and discuss them with your plastic surgeon.
