Common Reasons Patients Seek Revision Rhinoplasty

Just as any other surgery, there are certain misfortunes that cannot be avoided. Rhinoplasty is probably one of the most difficult cosmetic surgeries and most plastic surgeons will admit to this. No one can claim to provide their patients with the perfect nose. However, years of experience, practicing up to date techniques and utilizing the latest technology will attempt to meet and surpass patient expectations. Revision rhinoplasty is called upon rare instances in which patients feel unsatisfied with their initial results and seek advanced aesthetic improvements. There are many reasons patients seek a secondary nose surgery, today we will discuss the common reasons why patients request secondary rhinoplasty.

Results of Initial Procedure were Undesirable

It is a rarity when the patient and the surgeon are not on the same page to meet expected results. This is when the need for thorough consultation with the surgeon is advised to avoid such outcomes. Careful planning and execution the second time will to ensure that aesthetic results match the patients’ preference.

Patients Experienced Unfavorable Healing

Following recovery many patients observe excessive scarring as a result of poor healing. The initial surgery was smooth and recovery may have gone well, but the nasal structure did not conform to its natural state. In this case revision may restore nasal shape and remove excess scar tissue.

Breathing Complications Arose

The patient’s ability to breathe comfortably following rhinoplasty is an important part of the procedure. In some instances, breathing issues develop. Revision for this complication restores the patient’s breathing while improving appearance to excess cartilage or bone previously removed.

Post Surgical Injury Affected Nasal Structure

The nose is the most vulnerable part on our face, and it is more likely to receive injury when objects strike the head. The sensitivity levels increase when the patient sneezes following rhinoplasty. Plastic surgeons always instruct their patients to practice safe habits to avoid injury, but we all know that accidents are bound to happen when least expected. Hold in sneezes and avoid blowing the nose until your surgeon allows full use after recovery.

Patients often worry that they may be going back under the knife too soon, so the ideal time to consider revision is after a full year following the initial procedure. This allows time for incisions to heal and allow the shape to conform with the face.

Plastic surgeons never admit to performing the perfect treatment. They provide their patients with accurate expectations and will make corrections that achieve balance with facial features. Every rhinoplasty procedure is different for every patient and it is not a failed surgery if expectations are not met or complications follow, it is a part of the cosmetic process.
