But with all this talk about revision rhinoplasty comes some confusion: What exactly is this surgical procedure? And if you’re still unhappy with your last nose job, how do you know if it’s a good option for you?
Let’s answer those questions, including this main one: “What is revision rhinoplasty?”
At its core, revision rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to address issues caused by another nose job. Those issues can either be cosmetic or medical in nature; regardless, the issues may:
- Make you feel unhappy with your results
- Cause you to feel uncomfortable about your appearance
- Make it difficult to breathe properly
- Create or exaggerate asymmetrical facial features
Revision rhinoplasty can help patients achieve the final results they were initially striving to achieve.
If you’re interested in revision rhinoplasty surgery, we do recommend waiting at least three months before seeking out changes to your results. This time period allows for the majority of your swelling and bruising to disappear, which may in fact be the cause of the results that you’re not happy with.
You’re a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty surgery if you’re dissatisfied with how your new nose looks or have new or worsening breathing problems as a result of your previous surgery.
