Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is a procedure, in which a patient undergoes surgery due to unsatisfactory aesthetic or functional result from a previous rhinoplasty. Insertion of a prosthesis largely in the nose often causes inflammation or leads to an acutely mobile prosthesis.
Undesirable postoperative appearance may make one to think about revision surgery. Revision surgery is more challenging than the initial surgery. Hence, it is crucial to select a hospital or a surgeon with much experience in rhinoplasty. Revision surgery largely involves open rhinoplasty, in which the central aspect of the nose is incised. A better result is obtained by performing such surgery under a good field of surgical view, and the usual operation time is about one hour. The postoperative recovery time is similar to that of the initial surgery, but postsurgical edema (swelling) may be less.

Feasible time for Revision Rhinoplasty

01Revision rhinoplasty is recommended after the tissues of the skin have become soft.
02A patient may undergo revision surgery
generally six months after his/her initial
surgery. However, it is safer to wait
one year or longer for revision surgery.
03Revision surgery may be performed for cases with first rhinoplasty of simple raising of the nasal dorsum.
04A patient may undergo revision surgery only after inflammation has subsided completely.

Owing to relatively larger tissue damage from revision surgery,
as opposed to that of the first one, be prudent as immoderate or
excessive correction may lead to another surgery. A patient should
undertake such procedure by considering a natural appearance
fitting to oneself as well as safety.
