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, correct asymmetries, or otherwise alleviate imperfections.
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 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.
After determining your aesthetic goals, you will schedule a surgery date with Dr. Nima. Your revision rhinoplasty procedure will occur at our accredited outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia.
Depending on your treatment plan, Dr. Nima will follow an open or closed rhinoplasty approach. An open rhinoplasty approach involves placing the incision across the columella (i.e., the bridge of tissue separating the nostrils at the bridge of the nose). In contrast, the incisions for a closed rhinoplasty approach are internal. Generally, Dr. Nima prefers an open rhinoplasty approach, allowing for better visualization and precision.
During the procedure, Dr. Nima uses the utmost care and artistic skill to correct any issues following your initial rhinoplasty procedure, such as cosmetic or functionality problems. This revision may involve correcting nasal obstructions or delicately reshaping sections of the nose along the nasal bridge, tip, and nostrils.
In some cases, if your previous rhinoplasty overcorrected your nose, Dr. Nima may need to procure and add back tissue to achieve optimal results. If necessary, this tissue may come from your septum, ear, rib, or an external source.
Once Dr. Nima has completed your revision rhinoplasty, the incisions will be closed. Our surgical team will move you to our modern, comfortable recovery room until the anesthesia wears off.
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 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.
