Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery - Dr. Arash Moradzadeh
Serving Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and surrounding areas
Revision rhinoplasty (also known as secondary rhinoplasty) becomes necessary when patients are not happy with the results from previous nose surgery — or when the nose heals in an unexpected way. The ultimate goal is to create as natural and aesthetically pleasing a nose as possible that fits the patient’s face and aesthetic goals. The surgery can also result in improving the breathing function of the nose.
Revision rhinoplasty is carried out at least one year after the initial surgery and requires special expertise and advanced surgical techniques on the part of the plastic surgeon.
An expert in revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Moradzadeh first conducts an in-depth evaluation and digital imaging of the patient candidate’s nose and a review of the surgical and medical records from the previous rhinoplasty procedure. This allows him to determine the cause of the unsatisfactory results and whether or not the patient will be able to benefit from new surgery.
Understanding the Procedure
Revision rhinoplasty surgery varies in complexity and technique, depending on the nature of the problem to be corrected. The procedure can be as simple as an in-office touch-up or as complex as a total nasal reconstruction.
What to Expect Afterwards
The recovery time generally lasts between 7 and 10 days. The patient will usually have a splint on the nose, which is one week after the surgery. Most patients will not have nasal packing and usually return to work within two weeks. Dr. Moradzadeh monitors the patient’s progress during the first ten days after the surgery, with follow-up appointments every three months for the first year and annually every year after that. Full results are usually achieved after one year.
Is Revision Rhinoplasty Right For You?
Dr. Moradzadeh can help you make that determination after an extensive examination and consultation. As with all rhinoplasty surgery, it’s important to be realistic and clear about your goals for the procedure.
The experience I had with Dr. Moradzadeh as my surgeon was phenomenal. His unmatched craft coupled with his amazing bedside manner made for a very pleasant experience. Dr. Moradzadeh has gone above and beyond to achieve the absolute best and natural results possible.
One year ago, Dr. Moradzadeh performed a septoplasty/rhinoplasty on me. I was an athlete all through school and broke my nose multiple times while playing softball. After college, I wanted to pursue my modeling career but missed a lot of opportunities because of the external deformity of my nose. I saw a few local Facial Plastic Surgeons but after meeting with them, I never felt comfortable enough to commit. -Marry
For many years, I suffered from severe breathing problems through my nose. I had been delaying any medical procedures to fix the problem because I was uncomfortable with the process, especially the packing typically inserted into the nasal passages and the difficult recovery period. I went to see Dr. Moradzadeh for any alternative solutions. He described a quick, special surgical process that he can perform which alleviates the problem, improves nasal breathing and has no negative side effects. I willingly agreed since my discomfort was only getting worse. After the brief surgery, I immediately noticed the improvement. I haven’t been able to breathe this freely in years...-R.D.
He is amazing! Already recommended to family and My father is going in on Monday. An excellent doctor and so glad I was referred to him. :) His office staff is also on point and very friendly. What an awesome experience.-Diana
Very professional and skilled at administering botox. I highly recommend!
It was interesting to feel my forehead muscles trying to relax, but I took it easy the day I had my face done and although he said that the results show 7 to 10 days after... I noticed my expression lines chilling out 48 hours later. It is nice to have had a good experience and I am pleased thus far with the service.
I was pleasantly surprised at how the office is welcoming and they were even able to get me in sooner, as I was early. Parking is a little tricky, so I took valet across the street and it was about $10 (tip included). The doctor was friendly and gentle, getting the areas that I wanted to target....-Anonymous
