WHY GET A REVISION RHINOPLASTY
A revision rhinoplasty is also sometimes known as a secondary rhinoplasty. It is a type of surgery that seeks to correct or alter the nose after a previous rhinoplasty. More broadly speaking, a revision rhinoplasty can refer to any rhinoplasty that takes place after the initial surgery. In this surgery, issues that were not addressed in the first one—or issues that were made worse by the first one—can be rectified with the help of a skilled surgeon.
Typically, patients request to have a revision rhinoplasty when they have specific imbalances that are persisting even after the first rhinoplasty, have become an issue since the surgery, or have become more severe since the surgery.
Revision rhinoplasties are generally more complicated than the first rhinoplasty because the first one serves as the ideal time to address all the cosmetic and functional nasal issues. However, secondary procedures can be just as successful with the help of a skilled and experienced surgeon.
