Why People Get Revisions
There are a variety of reasons why people come to Dr. Nima for revision rhinoplasty in Los Angeles. Based on your individual circumstances, you may find that revision rhinoplasty can:
- Correct Aesthetic Concerns – Your nose may still be too large, bulbous, asymmetric, pinched, crooked, flat, hooked, saddled, or scooped after a previous rhinoplasty. Dr. Nima can strategically correct these aesthetic issues to give you the nose you truly desire.
- Improved Breathing – If you are searching for a way to fix breathing issues caused by a previous plastic surgery procedure, Dr. Nima has years of experience helping patients improve their breathing through revision rhinoplasty.
- Better Sleep – If a previous rhinoplasty left you with significant breathing issues that cause snoring and affect your sleep quality, Dr. Nima can address these to help you wake up rested and restored through revision surgery.
- Restore Facial Harmony – Dr. Nima is an artist in his own right. With revision rhinoplasty, he uses his artistic and surgical skills to address aesthetic concerns and restore facial harmony with beautiful, natural-looking results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Revision rhinoplasty at Eos Rejuvenation is an exhaustive and complex facial plastic surgery procedure that is not right for everyone. Dr. Nima is highly selective with his revision rhinoplasty patients and expects that they meet his requirements before undergoing surgery.
It is Generally Ideal For
- It has been at least one year since your initial rhinoplasty procedure. This ensures that your final results are fully developed.
- You have realistic expectations for your procedure results, and these expectations match up with Dr. Nima’s.
- Your ideal outcome has to be possible – Dr. Nima is careful about who he works with based on the potential success of the procedure, and he only operates if he knows he can get you 90% of the way there.
- You have to be patient. The final results of your revision rhinoplasty may not be visible until one to two years after the surgery.
It is Not So Great For
- You have unrealistic expectations that are likely to be unmet by revision rhinoplasty.
- You are not healthy enough for elective surgery.
- You are a smoker and are not willing to stop for a prolonged period of time.
- You are pregnant or breastfeeding.
How Old Do I Have to Be?
There is no “perfect” age to have revision rhinoplasty. Based on your individual case and several different factors, including age, Dr. Nima will determine if this comprehensive procedure is right for you.

The Procedure Process Explained
When it comes to revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Nima works closely with each patient to ensure they receive optimal results. His revision rhinoplasty procedure includes the initial consultation, preparation instructions, comprehensive revision rhinoplasty surgery, and recovery phase. Learn more about each below and contact us if you have any questions.
Your initial consultation with Dr. Nima is the most important step to achieving transformational results from revision rhinoplasty. During this appointment, he will discuss your specific cosmetic goals and expectations, answer questions, address procedure concerns, and explain the intricate revision rhinoplasty techniques he uses during surgery.
Dr. Nima will also 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 related to the one or more previous unsatisfactory rhinoplasties you have had. This allows him to develop an intimate understanding of your issues so he can give you the results that you are looking for.
What Should I Do in Preparation?
The Eos Rejuvenation team will provide you with a detailed list of steps to take in preparation for your revision rhinoplasty in Los Angeles. You can expect we will ask you to avoid certain medications and herbal supplements, stop all nicotine products, avoid alcohol consumption, and stop eating and drinking the day before your surgery.
What is Surgery Like?
At Eos Rejuvenation, our revision rhinoplasty procedures are performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or IV sedation. Based on your individual treatment goal, Dr. Nima may use a closed rhinoplasty approach, open rhinoplasty approach, or Piezosurgery.
The open rhinoplasty approach involves making an external incision across the columella (bridge of skin and cartilage between the nostrils), while the incisions for a closed rhinoplasty approach are internal.
While Dr. Nima is highly experienced in using the open rhinoplasty approach, he often recommends Piezosurgery as an alternative. Our goal is to make your revision rhinoplasty as simple, painless, and successful as possible. Piezosurgery often meets these goals as it is accurate, precise, and comfortable.
This cutting-edge technique involves cutting, adjusting, and shaping bone with an ultrasonic scalpel, eliminating the need to break bones or cause unnecessary facial trauma. Since it is more precise, it often results in better clinical outcomes and an easier recovery.
Once Dr. Nima has completed your rhinoplasty, the incisions are closed and you are moved to our state-of-the-art, luxurious recovery room to rest until the anesthesia wears off.
What Should I Expect in Terms of Recovery?
At Eos Rejuvenation, Dr. Nima and his team are dedicated to ensuring that you feel reassured and comfortable through every step of your revision rhinoplasty, including your recovery. As this will be the second time you are recovering from a rhinoplasty procedure, we want to take special consideration to ensure you recover optimally.
In a postoperative visit, Dr. Nima will explain in-depth the steps necessary to heal and cover any specific questions you have. However, you can expect some nasal swelling, mild bruising, nasal discharge, stiffness, and difficulty breathing in the first few weeks of your recovery.
Immediately after your procedure, Dr. Nima will position a cast that rests on the bridge of your nose. This is done instead of the uncomfortable nasal packing typically used for rhinoplasty recovery. At your one week follow-up appointment, Dr. Nima will likely remove the cast based on your individual healing progress.
Regarding your revision rhinoplasty results, you may see gradual changes in your nose and appearance within the first year after your surgery. Generally, final results are seen within one year, but can take up to three years to fully settle.

Other Things to Consider Before Getting a Revision Rhinoplasty
Revision rhinoplasty is a highly complex procedure and requires special consideration before taking the next step toward surgery. Here are some other important factors to consider when thinking about getting revision rhinoplasty in Los Angeles.
Are Any Additional Risks Involved Compared to Getting a Rhinoplasty the First Time?
An initial rhinoplasty has its own associated risks, and so does a revision rhinoplasty procedure. When undergoing your second, third, or fourth revision rhinoplasty, possible risks include bruising, bleeding, infection, changes in sensations, temporary loss of smell, skin discoloration, scarring, breathing problems, and anesthesia risks.
When choosing your revision rhinoplasty surgeon, take care in picking a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Nima, who has the skills and experience to reduce these risks.
Will I Need to Request Extensive Time Off From Work?
Dr. Nima recommends you allow seven to fourteen days to heal before returning to work and daily life. During this time, you should prioritize your healing and recovery process, which is essential for achieving optimal revision rhinoplasty results.
How Long Will My Results Last?
With revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Nima will shape, contour, and permanently remove bone and cartilage, which means your results should last a very long time. However, various circumstances can affect the longevity of your results, such as a facial injury, damage to your nose during recovery, and other instances.
Is It Really Worth it?
If your first rhinoplasty resulted in unwanted aesthetic or functionality issues, then a revision rhinoplasty in Los Angeles may be the best option for restoring your nose and readjusting it to suit your original facial plastic surgery goals.
