What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?

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 help improve 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.

What Are the Benefits of Revision Rhinoplasty?

Tailored Results

Unlike primary rhinoplasty, the secondary procedure is highly customized to address specific patient concerns. This customization allows for outcomes closely aligned with the patient’s aesthetic goals and expectations.

Long-Lasting Results

The improvements made during revision rhinoplasty are designed to be long-lasting. Patients enjoy the enduring benefits of a well-performed correction, contributing to lasting satisfaction.

Psychological Comfort

Correcting issues from a previous rhinoplasty often provides psychological relief and increases satisfaction with one’s appearance. This comfort comes from knowing that the perceived flaws have been expertly addressed.

Minimal Scarring

Advanced techniques in revision rhinoplasty minimize the risk of visible scarring. We ensure that any incisions are discreetly placed to maintain the nose’s aesthetic integrity.

Improved Proportional Balance

Revision rhinoplasty can adjust the nose size to better fit the face’s proportions. This adjustment enhances the overall facial harmony, making the features appear more proportionate.

Restoration of Function After Injury

For those whose initial rhinoplasty was necessitated by trauma, revision procedures can further refine both the functional and cosmetic outcomes. This is particularly important for patients who have experienced complications or incomplete recovery post-trauma.

Enhanced Facial Symmetry

Revision rhinoplasty helps achieve a more balanced facial appearance by making subtle adjustments to the nasal structure. This symmetry can significantly enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of one’s face.

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.

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.

What to Expect Afterward

The recovery time generally lasts between seven and 10 days. Typically, the patient will have a splint on their nose for one week following 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 10 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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Revision Rhinoplasty

Is Revision Rhinoplasty More Complicated Than a Primary Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty can be more complex due to changes in nasal anatomy from the initial surgery, scar tissue, and the need for precise corrections. We are highly experienced in navigating these challenges to achieve successful outcomes.

How Should I Prepare for a Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure?

Preparation involves several steps to ensure the best outcomes. We advise patients to avoid medications like aspirin and ibuprofen that can increase bleeding, stop smoking several weeks before and after surgery to promote better healing, and arrange for someone to assist them post-surgery. Additionally, following all pre-operative instructions we provide is important to optimize your readiness for the procedure.

Is Revision Rhinoplasty Right for Me?

Ideal candidates for revision rhinoplasty are individuals who are dissatisfied with the results of a previous nose job, whether due to aesthetic or functional issues. Candidates should be non-smokers in good overall health who have realistic expectations about the outcomes of revision surgery.

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.
