FaQ – Revision Rhinoplasty

How often is revision rhinoplasty successful?

The success rate of revision rhinoplasty can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the case, the surgeon’s expertise, and the patient’s healing process. While it can be more challenging than primary rhinoplasty, successful outcomes are achievable, especially when performed by a surgeon with specialized training and experience in revision procedures. It’s important for patients to have realistic expectations and to understand that achieving perfection is often not possible.

What should I consider when choosing a surgeon for revision rhinoplasty?

Choosing the right surgeon for revision rhinoplasty is crucial. Look for a board-certified plastic surgeon or otolaryngologist with specific experience and expertise in revision rhinoplasty. Review their before-and-after photos of similar cases, check patient testimonials, and ensure that they take the time to understand your concerns and goals. A surgeon’s skill and experience in dealing with complex nasal surgeries significantly impact the outcome of the revision procedure.

Can revision rhinoplasty correct breathing problems caused by the first surgery?

Yes, revision rhinoplasty can address and often correct breathing issues resulting from the first surgery. Structural problems like a deviated septum or collapsed nasal valves that may have been caused or not addressed in the initial surgery can be corrected during revision rhinoplasty. It’s important to clearly communicate any breathing difficulties to your surgeon during the consultation so that functional improvements can be incorporated into the surgical plan.
