Rhinoplasty Doesn’t Look Right

Unfortunately, not all rhinoplasty patients are happy with the results of their initial procedure. This is especially common among patients who’ve visited less experienced surgeons. Because of this, a feeling that their rhinoplasty doesn’t quite look right leads many patients to seek a revision rhinoplasty. Common causes of this include an unnatural, surgical appearance of the nose as well as too much or too little tissue removed.

Injury During Healing

Another common reason for patients seeking a revision rhinoplasty is an injury to the tissue while healing. The tissue of the nose is delicate during the healing process, which can take place over an extended period of time after a rhinoplasty. During this time, it is not uncommon for patients to experience some sort of injury or trauma to the nose. When this happens, however, it can affect the way the nose looks. In some cases, injury to the nose can force patients to consider revision plastic surgery.

Breathing difficulties

In addition to aesthetics and injury, difficulty breathing is among the top reasons for revision rhinoplasty. Patients who’ve undergone rhinoplasty, even with good surgeons, may experience this problem as the nose begins to heal. This is due to the complexity of the surgery and delicate nature of the tissue. Scarring and healing issues can cause blockages of the nasal passages. For some people, these problems clear naturally over time. But for others, a revision procedure may be necessary.
