What Are The Reasons To Get A Revision Rhinoplasty
Patients may opt for revision rhinoplasty because they are unhappy with the appearance of their nose, or an improper nose function, or a combination of both after an unsuccessful rhinoplasty procedure.
Aesthetically, patients are looking for exact results before committing to cosmetic surgery. Unfortunately, an inexperienced or uncertified surgeon may miss the mark completely, devastating a patient. Dr. Nima commonly performs aesthetic revision rhinoplasty at EOS Rejuvenation, using state-of-the-art technology and techniques to delicately redesign, form, and heal your facial centerpiece into the dream nose you originally desired.
Some of the issues targeted with aesthetic revision rhinoplasty include:
• The nose is still too large, bulbous, asymmetric, or improperly shaped
• The nose is pinched, crooked, flat, hooked, pointy, or has a hump
• The nose is saddle-backed or scooped
• The nose does not fit or maintain global harmony with your face
• The nose does not have a natural appearance
• The rhinoplasty was not completed fully or satisfactorily, leaving the nose scarred or deformed
Functional revision rhinoplasty is necessary when an inexperienced surgeon cannot make a nose look good while optimizing nasal airway function. Functional issues include internal or external nasal valve collapse due to excessive scar tissue. Dr. Nima rectifies and redesigns a nose for function by harvesting preexisting cartilage to reinforce the nose, correct asymmetries, or otherwise alleviate imperfections.
Dr. Nima can also combine both functional and aesthetic techniques during his procedure to fix both problems.
Our Advanced Technology
At Eos Rejuvenation, we want to make revision rhinoplasty as simple, painless, and successful as possible. In pursuit of this goal, we are happy to offer our patients treatment via the innovative Piezosurgery method. This advanced technique involves cutting and moving bone via an ultrasonic scalpel, eliminating the need to break bones or cause undue facial trauma. The advantage of this technique is a more precise surgical result, as well as an expedited recovery. To learn more about the benefits of Piezosurgery, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nima, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon serving Beverly Hills.
Benefits of Revision rhinoplasty
There are generally three categories of revisional rhinoplasty: aesthetic (to improve appearance), functional (to improve breathing, decrease snoring, or otherwise alleviate nasal discomfort), or a combination of both. Each category involves a different approach.
Aesthetic revision rhinoplasty is the more common of the two. For some, an initial rhinoplasty left their nose too pinched or crooked, or a hump may not have been satisfactorily alleviated. In such instances, a revision will focus on building the nose back up. We will replace missing cartilage and give the nose more support.
With functional revision rhinoplasty, our focus is on ensuring that your nose works the way nature intended it to. As one might expect, there are a variety of reasons for problems with proper nasal functionality. Examples include a trauma suffered while healing or a previous surgery (especially reductive procedures performed far in the past), which failed to properly heal.
In these and other instances, during your procedure, cartilage – most likely harvested from inside your own nasal cavity, but sometimes from your ear or ribs – will be utilized to reinforce the nose, to correct asymmetries, or to otherwise alleviate imperfections.
Video: This beautiful young woman had TWO rhinoplasty procedures done elsewhere several years before seeing Dr Nima. She was left with a droopy, long, asymmetric nose that was difficult to breathe out of. After her revision rhinoplasty with Dr Nima, her nose is much more feminine, with a gently curve and more symmetry, especially on frontal view.

Our Revision Rhinoplasty Process
The first step is an in-depth consultation with Dr. Nima. Here, he will discuss your specific cosmetic goals, answer questions, and explain procedural techniques. Dr. Nima will inspect and take photos of your nose, then use state-of-the-art imaging software to show you what your future nose will look like after the procedure. Lastly, Dr. Nima will review any medical paperwork or history you have related to the one or more previous unsatisfactory rhinoplasties you’ve had. This allows him to develop an intimate understanding of your issues so he can give you the results that you are looking for.

Coming to Dr. Nima was the best decision I’ve ever made. My biggest insecurity was my nose for the longest. I found EOS rejuvenation and scheduled myself for a consultation. The team is very friendly and I felt very comfortable sharing any comments I had, with them. They made me feel at ease and explained the process to me. I am so grateful for Dr. Nima and his team for all they have done for me. I have never felt this confident in my life and I thank Dr. Nima for that.
I’ll start with saying Dr. Nima is the best. I am beyond scared of surgery and needles but after my first consultation I knew I found a Dr that could ease those fears. Everyone in the office was amazing and made sure it had the best experience possible. The surgery itself was a game changer allowed me to breathe again with minimal recovery. If you’re second guessing don’t just do it and the staff here will make sure you made the right choice.
Recovery from the Procedure
You should allow for 7-14 days to heal before returning to work and daily life. During this time, you may experience some nasal swelling, mild bruising, nasal discharge, stiffness, and difficulty breathing.
Dr. Nima has eliminated the uncomfortable nasal packing that is typically used and opts for a cast that rests on the bridge of the nose during the first week of recovery. It may take up to a year to fully heal as the nose settles into its new position and all swelling subsides.
The team at Eos Rejuvenation in Beverly Hills is devoted to ensuring that our patients feel reassured and comfortable through every step of the way. As this will be the second time recovering from a rhinoplasty procedure, we want to take special consideration to ensure proper recovery. In a post-op visit, Dr. Nima will explain in-depth the steps necessary to heal and cover any specific questions you have.

Revision Rhinoplasty Frequently Asked Questions
How soon after Rhinoplasty surgery can I undergo Revision Rhinoplasty?
Many plastic surgeons recommend that a patient’s nose be fully healed before revision rhinoplasty, though every case is different depending on the patient’s reason for the revision. Examples of common problems that may require revision rhinoplasty include excessive scarring, nasal airway obstruction, and worsened asymmetry.
Factors that may be considered when deciding how soon patients can undergo revision rhinoplasty include the amount of scar tissue present, number of previous nasal surgeries, and nasal framework. Patients who wish to have revision rhinoplasty can schedule a consultation with Dr. Nima in Beverly Hills to receive an evaluation and determine when they qualify to have revision surgery.
I have uneven nostrils due to a past Rhinoplasty. Can a Revision Rhinoplasty correct my uneven nostrils?
Revision rhinoplasty can correct problems with worsened asymmetry and uneven nostrils that may have resulted from a past rhinoplasty procedure. However, it is normal for some rhinoplasty Beverly Hills patients to have uneven nostrils immediately after surgery due to swelling, nasal splints, and the formation of scar tissue.
Rhinoplasty patients may want to wait at least six months to see if symmetry is restored to their nostrils before deciding to have revision rhinoplasty. After the six-month mark, those who have uneven nostrils due to a past rhinoplasty procedure can meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss the possibility of revision surgery.
Is it possible to make my nose larger after a failed Rhinoplasty?
In some instances, rhinoplasty can result in a far smaller nose than what the patient desired. Revision rhinoplasty can make the nose larger using grafts from the patient’s body. A plastic surgeon may place spreader grafts in the bridge of the nose to widen the nose or enlarge the nasal tip.
Though making a nose larger is less common with rhinoplasty, this can be done to correct a failed rhinoplasty surgery. Those Beverly Hills patients who want to make their noses larger can consult with an experienced plastic surgeon to discuss whether revision rhinoplasty can be safely performed without causing breathing problems or other unwanted side effects.
Can scar tissue be removed with a Revision Rhinoplasty?
Yes, revision rhinoplasty can remove scar tissue that may have resulted from a previous rhinoplasty procedure. Excessive amounts of scar tissue can sometimes form between the cartilage and skin to affect the final results of the failed rhinoplasty surgery. Scar tissue can be successfully removed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who can safely perform the procedure without affecting blood supply or worsening the appearance of the nose.
Rhinoplasty patients can reduce their risk of developing excess scar tissue and requiring revision rhinoplasty by wearing nasal tape throughout the healing phase. Patients can also adhere closely to their plastic surgeon’s post-op instructions to avoid developing excess scar tissue.
What causes a shifted or collapsed cartilage after Rhinoplasty?
Weakened cartilage and nasal structure can sometimes shift or collapse after rhinoplasty to change the appearance of the nose—often resulting in the need for revision rhinoplasty. A shift or collapse of cartilage may also happen if too much bone or tissue was removed from the nose during the failed rhinoplasty. These changes occur most frequently after swelling has gone down or after the nose has fully healed following surgery.
Revision rhinoplasty can correct cartilage that has shifted or collapsed and may involve the use of grafts to restructure the nose. Undergoing revision rhinoplasty with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills can reduce the risk for future instances of shifting or collapsing cartilage.
How many times can I get a revision rhinoplasty?
Patients seek revision rhinoplasty when their initial procedure goes badly, or they are not fully satisfied with the results. There is no set limit on how many revision rhinoplasty procedures you can have, but the more times you have a revision rhinoplasty, the more challenging the procedure is for your surgeon. Revision rhinoplasty tends to be more complex than the initial surgery, and each additional revision compounds that complexity.
Should I go to the same surgeon for revision rhinoplasty?
Sometimes, patients seek a revision rhinoplasty to correct a minor problem or “touch up” their rhinoplasty results. In these situations, it is reasonable to return to your original surgeon. However, if you are unhappy with your rhinoplasty results and believe the surgeon’s level of skill or experience played a part in that, it is only logical to seek a second opinion from a board-certified plastic surgeon, preferably someone with great experience performing rhinoplasty procedures.
Does a revision take longer to heal?
Revision rhinoplasty is more complex than an initial rhinoplasty. Because of this, the surgery itself tends to be more time-consuming. Additionally, you can expect a longer recovery time for your revision rhinoplasty. This is because tissues that have already been altered and formed scar tissue will need to heal once again. This healing process takes a little while longer than the initial healing process.
What is the success rate of revision rhinoplasties?
Over 85% of rhinoplasty patients are quite happy with their initial results, and research shows that only a small percentage of patients require any kind of revision. Revision rhinoplasties are more complex than the initial procedure, yet many patients only need minor corrections or touch-ups. As such, most patients who have a revision rhinoplasty performed end up being very happy with their results. The key to having a successful surgery is looking for a board-certified surgeon that specializes in rhinoplasty and has a notable history of providing successful results.
