What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty, or secondary rhinoplasty, is an operation aimed at correcting deformities encountered after a previous rhinoplasty or from multiple previous rhinoplasties. The nose can change extensively overtime after a rhinoplasty especially if there is weakened structural support of the nose.
What Nasal Issues Can Revision Rhinoplasty Fix?
Problems can range from:
- Contour deformities of the bridge
- Septal perforations and alar retraction.
What Should I Expect At My Rhinoplasty Consultation?
Similarly to your primary rhinoplasty consultation, realistic goals and expectations for revision surgery will be discussed at length at the consultation and preoperative computer imaging will be performed with all patients so that patients can feel comfortable and have input into the desired outcome.
What To Expect During Revision Rhinoplasty
Secondary rhinoplasty often becomes a structural operation aimed at restoring the natural support of the nose that was disrupted by previous trauma or surgery. A variety of grafting materials may be utilized in revision surgery including cartilage grafting from the septum, ears, or from the rib.
