Revision Rhinoplasty BEVERLY HILLS / LOS ANGELES
What is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty is a procedure performed to correct aesthetic and functional issues which exist after undergoing a previous nose surgery. The procedure is very complicated due to the presence of scar tissue and the removal of cartilage associated with the first procedure.
There are a variety of reasons a revision rhinoplasty might be necessary. Some of the most common include:
- Nose asymmetry
- Pinched tip
- Crooked, off-center, or irregular bridge
- Scooped out appearance to bridge
- Pointy or uneven tip
- Pulled up nostrils
- “Inverted-V” deformity, caused when too much of the middle third cartilage is removed
- Wide nostrils
- Pollybeak deformity caused by a bump on the bridge
- Poorly defined tip
- Functional issues which affect breathing, most commonly caused by a deviated septum, excessive scar tissue, or nasal valve collapse
If you are unhappy with the result of a previous rhinoplasty procedure, then you may want to consider revision rhinoplasty to restore balance to your facial features and improve any functional issues associated with breathing. Revision rhinoplasty is a highly specialized procedure that is often much more difficult than the initial nose surgery. It is important to work with a plastic surgeon who has extensive experience performing this procedure.
