Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery
Sometimes complications can occur after a nose job. You may experience difficulty breathing or deformities from work done by an unqualified surgeon. If you are experiencing issues, rhinoplasty revision surgery may be beneficial. This cosmetic nose procedure can repair any problems you are experiencing so you can look and feel better.
How Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery Works
Rhinoplasty revision surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Bone and cartilage are reshaped to improve breathing and/or appearance. Incisions are typically made inside the nose to prevent visible scarring. When this is not able to be done, incisions are made under the tip of the nose. Bone and cartilage may be grafted from other areas of the body in order to make revisions.
A plastic splint may be placed within and on the outside of the nose to provide support during recovery. Swelling may occur for about a week after surgery. Ice packs and pain medications help minimize discomfort. Normal activities can be resumed in about six weeks. Full recovery for a rhinoplasty revision could take up to a year.
Ideal Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery Candidates
Ideal candidates for rhinoplasty revision surgery are individuals unhappy about their previous nose job. You must be in good physical condition and cease smoking weeks prior to surgery for optimal results. A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon can help determine if this procedure is necessary and if you are a suitable candidate.
