Revision rhinoplasty is a procedure designed to correct the form or function of a nose that has previously undergone an initial rhinoplasty procedure. Following an initial rhinoplasty, some patients may experience difficulty breathing or be unhappy with the aesthetic appearance of the nose. The key to a successful rhinoplasty revision is finding an expertly trained, board certified facial plastic surgeon.

A rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult plastic surgery procedures to perform. Unless your plastic surgeon is board certified and highly trained in performing rhinoplasties, there is potentially a higher chance that a secondary revision rhinoplasty will be necessary. Both doing your research and finding the best plastic surgeon available can help prevent the need for a revision procedure. However, many patients consider a revision plastic surgery procedure if they have already undergone an initial rhinoplasty and experience one or more of the following:
- Difficulty breathing and/or airway obstruction
- Too little tissue removal
- Excessive tissue removal
- Nasal deformity
- Unnatural surgical appearance
If you have undergone one or more previous rhinoplasty procedures and are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, a revision rhinoplasty could help restore your cosmetic appearance, nasal functioning, and self-confidence. Our kind and knowledgeable staff at the Revision Plastic Surgery Center of Excellence would be more than happy to answer any and all questions you may have about your potential revision rhinoplasty.
Every patient is unique, and every revision rhinoplasty procedure performed at the Revision Plastic Surgery Center of Excellence will be customized for optimal results. The exact details of your revision rhinoplasty will depend on the type and severity of your condition. For more mild cases, your surgeon may simply need to remove and/or reshape some additional tissue. For more severe cases, tissue grafts from the ear or ribs may be necessary to restore the appearance and functioning of the nose. In total, a revision rhinoplasty procedure will take anywhere from one to several hours. After a revision rhinoplasty, patients typically report symptoms of swelling, bruising, and general pain and discomfort. Any pain and discomfort experienced following a revision plastic surgery procedure can be attenuated with pain medications and tend to dissipate in 7 – 10 days.
