The Challenges of Revision Rhinoplasty in Sydney

What to expect in nose surgery reconstruction

Are you thinking about getting revision Rhinoplasty in Sydney? People who’ve had a nose job done in the past may be disappointed with the outcome and are considering a follow up surgery to achieve the desired results or correct any mistakes made by the previous surgeon. This follow up surgery would then be called a revision or nose surgery reconstruction procedure.

What you need to know about getting a revision rhinoplasty operation?

One of the first things that you need to know about the procedures in revision rhinoplasty (or any kind of reconstructive/corrective plastic surgery for that matter) is that it’s a lot more complicated than the first one. Your surgeon would have to work with possible scarring and deal with any tissues and bones extracted from the initial operation. Hence revision rhinoplasty presents a lot more challenges that only the best plastic surgeons in the country are equipped to handle – and you can bet that it is going to cost you.

Perhaps the most significant challenge when it comes to revision rhinoplasty in Sydney is the removal of much needed nasal tissues and bones that your surgeon needs for the operation. In such cases, your surgeon will have to harvest everything that he needs from other parts of the patient’s body or graft synthetic ones if necessary. Nasal features will have to be moved and restructured to shape the nose into a desirable or acceptable form. It is easy to see that the operation requires great skill and no meagre level of experience.

You can expect a revision rhinoplasty operation to take a lot longer than the initial operation which also explains why the operation would naturally cost you a lot more in addition to the high level of skill and experience required.
