Revisional Rhinoplasty is a procedure for correcting prior surgery on the nose. Also known as a secondary nose job or secondary rhinoplasty, there are a number of reasons you may want a revisional procedure, including:
- Not fully anticipating how changes to their nose shape or size will impact the total facial appearance
- A need for further refinement or correction of functional aspects (Septoplasty procedures)
Revisional nose surgery can range from a procedure to remove residual excess bone or cartilage in the nasal bridge to a more complex surgery. All Rhinoplasty procedures are highly complex; but Revision Rhinoplasty procedures are particularly challenging.
Some Revisional Surgery may involve an extremely complicated overhaul of the entire nose, potentially involving augmentation or complex reconstruction.
Patients who may have experienced excess tissue removal in prior Surgeries may have been left with a deformity. Revision in these cases requires an extremely experienced Plastic Surgeon with precision skills and expertise in complex procedures.
