Did you make the life changing decision to have rhinoplasty surgery only to be disappointed in your results? If your nose augmentation surgery did not achieve the results you were anticipating, you may be a good candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty.
Revision Rhinoplasty is a medical procedure that is designed to repair problems related to the form and function of the nose that are a result of a previous rhinoplasy surgery. If you are physically healthy and have realistic expectations on improving your results, Revision Rhinoplasty may be the solution to your problems.
It is important to find a skilled and qualified board certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Benjamin C. Stong, M.D. to discuss your Revision Rhinoplasy options. It is vital to thoroughly discuss what can reasonably be achieved from your procedure to diminish any unrealistic expectations and lessen your chances of dissatisfaction. It takes experience and expertise to undo what another surgeon has already done.
If you are considering Revision Rhinoplasy due to “architectural problems” such as a deviated septum or enlarged turbinates, surgery may be your only option. In some cases, revision rhinoplasty may be a slightly less invasive procedure when only certain portions of the initial surgery need to be repaired or altered. In a number of patients, there can be improvements made without surgery where facial injections can fill and smooth dips, grooves or hollow spots in the nose. Slight bumps and rises can sometimes be altered by shrinking the soft tissue found underneath the skin through a series of injections.
If you are unhappy with the outcome from an initial rhinoplasty procedure, consider Revision Rhinoplasty to obtain a more customized result to achieve your desired satisfaction.
