Getting Revision Rhinoplasty

All about reconstructive nose surgery

Find yourself in need of a revision Rhinoplasty operation? Nose reshaping can be described as among the most complex and delicate of all cosmetic surgical operations. Despite your surgeon’s best efforts, the operation may not yield the results that you’ve expected and further surgery is necessary to achieve the desired results. It’s fairly common especially with when rhinoplasty is performed as a part of reconstructive nose surgery.

For those that are interested, it is best advised to seek out the services of a nose job revision specialist. These specialists are not concerned with doing a complete rhinoplasty operation but rather introduce strategic and delicate improvements to a previous nose job operation. These specialists can be called on to fix any mistakes made – excessive scarring, misshapen nose structure, etc.

Getting started with revision rhinoplasty

If you are unsatisfied with the results of a nose job operation then your first step would be to arrange a consultation with a specialist for revision Rhinoplasty. These specialists are often much more skilled and any revision surgery can cost a lot more than having some of the best Rhinoplasty surgeons in the country do the job right the first time.

During the consultation, expect your revision specialist to examine the following:

The current appearance of your nose

Extent of scarring

Can the problem be corrected with revision nose surgery?

The validity of the patient’s reasons for seeking out revision surgery

Only by looking into the factors mentioned above can a revision specialist determine whether you are a suitable candidate for revision surgery. In most cases, revision is carried out to fix minor problems with a previous nose job operation. Extreme revisions are uncommon but it can still happen especially in the case of so called bargain nose jobs done overseas performed by inexperienced plastic surgeons with dubious credentials.
