Dr. Nima, plastic surgeon of Beverly Hills EOS Rejuvenation, understands how nerve-wracking it can be to realize you need a revision rhinoplasty to correct your previous results. Having just experienced the discomfort and emotional rollercoaster of your first rhinoplasty, dissatisfaction is not a welcomed feeling. However, there are cases in which a revision may be required, including excessive scarring, nasal airway obstruction, and worsened asymmetry of the nose. If you think or know that you need to have revision rhinoplasty but are unsure of how long you’ll have to wait before you can undergo the procedure, keep reading. We will discuss the procedure and answer this important question.
When Can I Have Revision Rhinoplasty?
Everyone is unique, and everyone’s rhinoplasty procedure is unique; therefore, how soon one will qualify for revision rhinoplasty varies from patient to patient. However, Dr. Nima recommends that his Beverly Hills patient’s nose be fully healed before a revision procedure can be performed.
Things to consider before doing a Revision Rhinoplasty
When deciding whether or not patients qualify for revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Nima will consider the following:
- The amount of scar tissue present,
- The number of previous nasal surgeries,
- And the nasal framework.
The Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure
There are three categories revision rhinoplasty falls into – aesthetic, functional, or a combination of the two. Depending on the reason for your revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Nima will choose varying approaches to perform your procedure.
Aesthetic Revision Rhinoplasty
This is the most common reason for revision rhinoplasty. For Beverly Hills men and women whose initial rhinoplasty left them with a nose that looked too pinched or crooked, or with a hump, may not have been able to achieve their desired results the first go ‘round. By performing a revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Nima will focus on building the nose back up and replacing missing cartilage to give the nose more support.
Functional Revision Rhinoplasty
Functional revision rhinoplasty focuses on ensuring that the nose works the way it was meant to. There be many reasons why functional problems occur with the nose, including trauma suffered while healing or a failed previous surgery that failed to heal properly. To perform this type of revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Nima will likely harvest cartilage from inside your nasal cavity but may also choose to take it from your ear or ribs in order to reinforce the nose. This corrects asymmetries and alleviates other imperfections.
