What is Revision Rhinoplasty?
If you’ve already had a rhinoplasty and are not pleased with its outcome, this can be a particularly discouraging situation. Revision Rhinoplasty is the term used to describe any rhinoplasty performed subsequent to one’s primary or initial rhinoplasty. Revisions can address problems in either form or function.
The Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure
Depending on your goals, it is sometimes an in-office procedure performed under local anesthetic, or alternatively can be a multiple hour procedure that requires the use of cartilage grafts harvested from your septum, ear, or rib. Occasionally, a revision can be performed just a few months after your first surgery, but most often a full year of healing is necessary before your nose can be operated upon again.
