Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult and artful procedures that plastic surgeons perform. Undergoing primary rhinoplasty can require a leap of faith—and when the results are poor, patients can be left shocked and unhappy with their decision. In fact, a subpar rhinoplasty can leave patients more self-conscious than before the procedure. In such a case, it is important to find a proficient surgeon in the complex art of revision rhinoplasty. Our board-certified plastic surgeons have been performing revision rhinoplasty surgery for over two decades, routinely helping their patients get the result they were seeking the first time around.

What Complications can be Corrected with Revision Rhinoplasty?

Fortunately, in the hands of a capable surgeon, virtually any nose-related issue can be corrected with a revision rhinoplasty. Over the years, our patients have presented our practice with many complications. See our list below for some of the more common ones.

Revision Rhinoplasty can Address the Following Issues:

  • An unnatural or “done” looking nose
  • Under-corrected bridge of the nose
  • Over-corrected bridge, resulting in a so-called “saddle nose”
  • Uneven or crooked nasal tip
  • Uneven nose bridge or overall shape
  • Nose is too big
  • Nose is too small
  • Breathing issues after surgery

How is a Revision Rhinoplasty Performed?

As mentioned, the revision rhinoplasty procedure will be different for each patient. Following are some techniques our surgeons may use:

  • In the case of excess cartilage that should have been removed in the primary procedure, our surgeons will precisely remove the exact amount necessary to retain structure and produce an aesthetic result.
  • In the case that too much tissue was removed, the procedure will be more complex. Our surgeons may use cartilage from other parts of the body to reinforce the nasal structure and ensure the nose is cosmetically in balance with the rest of the face.
  • If the skin on the nose is very tight, the surgeon will use precise techniques to restore a natural appearance to the nose and face.

In addition to the above, our board-certified plastic surgeons have an extremely thorough knowledge of the entire nasal structure. They can use this knowledge to fluidly addresses whatever combination of complications are presented. All told, the revision rhinoplasty patients are grateful following their procedure, having finally achieved the results they originally desired.

Restoring Your Nose After an Earlier Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is a highly customized technique. Every patient presents with a different set of complications, and various techniques may be necessary to achieve an ideal result. Our board-certified plastic surgeon will spend the necessary amount of time to examine your nose, listen to your goals, and generally work to achieve complete understanding prior to the procedure. They will clearly lay out their surgical plan, making you a full partner in your road to a happy, healthy, beautiful nose.
