WHAT IS REVISION RHINOPLASTY?
Revision rhinoplasty, commonly known as secondary rhinoplasty or revision nasal surgery, is used to address undesired outcomes after a primary nose job. In some instances, revision rhinoplasty is performed to correct aesthetic and / or functional problems of the nose arising after the initial rhinoplastic surgery. It is used to correct deficiencies of a prior rhinoplasty procedure. Revision rhinoplasty enables a person to re-shape the nose and enhance his or her cosmetic appearance, as the previous rhinoplasty procedure failed to produce optimal results.
In addition, this facial plastic surgery allows a patient to restore nasal function if it was impaired during a previous rhinoplasty. If a patient undergoes rhinoplasty surgery and is not satisfied with the results, a revision rhinoplasty performed by a Rhinoplasty Specialist facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon is ideal. Thanks to modifications to rhinoplasty, a patient can correct problems that were not addressed in primary rhinoplasty.
