Revision Rhinoplasty SurgeryIf you want to look your absolute best, you may be surprised to learn just how much the appearance of your nose can make a difference. Since the nose is such a central facial feature, even minor adjustments to its contour and shape can have remarkable results. And yet sometimes the first rhinoplasty surgery is ineffective, flawed, or yields undesirable results. When you meet with an Orange County plastic surgeon, you can learn more about secondary/revision rhinoplasty surgery and if it's ideal for you. Right now we'd like to look at the basics so you have a good understanding of what is involved.

About Rhinoplasty Surgery

A rhinoplasty is a surgery performed in order to alter the size, shape, and appearance of the nose. It can also be performed in order to revise the internal structures of the nose, improving respiration and airflow in the process. During a consultation at our facial plastic surgery center serving Orange County, we can let you know if rhinoplasty is the best option for you and your needs.

What is revision rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty refers to a second rhinoplasty that is performed to correct the initial rhinoplasty. The way that the revision rhinoplasty is performed will depend on the reason for the revision surgery and the needs of the patient.

Why Revision Rhinoplasty May Be Necessary

In general, there are aesthetic reasons for performing revision rhinoplasty and medically necessary reasons for and Orange County rhinoplasty revision. Let's briefly address both.

Aesthetic Reasons for Revision Rhinoplasty

The nose is extremely sensitive after a rhinoplasty has performed. So much so that even wearing glasses can have an affect on the results. If a patient sleeps on his or her side or has any pressure placed on the healing nose, it can lead to poor aesthetic results. The revision surgery will be as conservative as possible to help achieve patients achieve their aesthetic goals.

Medical Reasons for Revision Rhinoplasty

In addition to the nose being very sensitive after a rhinoplasty has been performed, there are many side effects and complications that can affect a patient's health. These are often the sorts of complications and side effects common to other surgeries, such as poor healing time and infection. It's important these facial cosmetic surgery complications get addressed as soon as possible through revision rhinoplasty so patents do not face any adverse harm.

Additional Matters to Consider

Revision/secondary surgeries can be performed on all kinds of surgical treatments as needed. However, in order to prevent the need for corrective surgery or any sort of revisions, we stress that it is extremely important for patients to follow our instructions for pre-operative care and post-operative care to the letter. Doing so will limit the chances of poor healing and recovery and will help ensure the best possible results.
