SURGERY

Revision
Rhinoplasty

Noses that have had previous operations performed can be problematic, either in terms of their appearance, their function, or both. The goal of a revision rhinoplasty includes the restoration of the natural contour and function of the nose.

CONCERNS
PROCEDURE SPECIFICS
BEFORE SURGERY
AFTER SURGERY

Similar concerns to those leading to initial surgery (hump, width, asymmetry, and others) may persist. In addition, previously operated noses may have a “done” appearance and feature unnatural curves and bumps under the skin. The severity of each depends on numerous factors, however, in experienced hands most deformities can be addressed with a carefully planned revision surgery.

 

Rhinoplasty incisions are placed along the previously made incisions. An “open” approach is typically required and adds an incision placed across the columella (a structure situated between both nostrils). This site heals imperceptibly in the majority of cases and allows for improved access and visualization of nasal structures under the skin – an especially important consideration in revision surgery. Manipulation of bone and cartilage may require grafting materials from various sites, such as ears (cartilage), rib (cartilage), and temple (fascia) in order to optimally modify and shape the nasal framework. At the conclusion of this operation, internal and external splints are commonly placed to ensure the stability of the nose during the initial healing process.

General anesthesia is most commonly used.

 

We will perform imaging prior to surgery in order to both help you visualize the desired appearance of your nose, and to develop the surgical plan needed to obtain your most natural looking result.

 

Rhinoplasty is an ambulatory procedure, which means that you can expect to return home the same day as your surgery. You should plan to take about 5-7 days off from work, as the healing period is crucial for achieving your optimal result. You can also expect to be icing regularly following surgery, and we will show you how to apply ointment to your suture lines in order to prevent infection. Nasal dressings, splints, and sutures are removed about 7 days after surgery. In most cases, medication advancements can be used to minimize the appearance of post-operative bruising past 7 days.
