Are You in Need of Revision Rhinoplasty?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose or your ability to breathe during exercise, you have probably looked up or thought about undergoing rhinoplasty at some point. This surgical procedure can alter and enhance the shape and look of different areas of your nose to give it the appearance that can make you feel happy and comfortable. However, rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult cosmetic procedures to perform as it requires a high level of surgical skill, aesthetic judgement and experience to perform.

Unfortunately, some people may find that their primary rhinoplasty has left them with poor aesthetic results or other issues that have affected the stability and function of their nose. In these cases, revision rhinoplasty can be performed to correct these issues and provide patients with results that satisfy their aesthetic and functional goals.

Is Revision Rhinoplasty Right for Me?

Rhinoplasty is a complex procedure that can involve the use of various techniques, often dictated by what is discovered during surgery, in order to achieve the patient’s desired outcome. Rhinoplasty involves removing, reshaping, and repositioning nasal cartilage to create the desired shape, long term structural support and appearance. In some cases, bone may need to be removed or shaved down. may also be present and previously untreated. There may also be an excessive amount of internal scarring following the previous procedure. Some patients may also experience nasal collapse where the improper or excessive removal of septal cartilage causes the nasal bridge to collapse inward following the procedure.

Many patients find that the results of their rhinoplasty did not address their aesthetic concerns. This can mean that the nose still appears too wide, too large, or may still look asymmetrical. If you are experiencing functional issues (nasal airway obstruction that result in migraines, earaches and sinus issues) as a result of your primary rhinoplasty or if you are not happy with the results of your rhinoplasty, you may want to consider revision rhinoplasty.
