Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery (nose-job surgery) may become necessary if you are dissatisfied with the appearance and function of your nose after undergoing prior Rhinoplasty Surgery. You may require Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery if your nose is too long or wide, if you have a large nasal hump, a droopy nasal tip, a hanging columella, or significant nasal asymmetry. Surgery may also be necessary to improve your nasal breathing.
Your Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery will be significantly more difficult than your initial Rhinoplasty Surgery, so the expertise of your surgeon is critical for achieving an attractive and natural-looking result. During your Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery, scar tissue may be encountered, that obscures normal tissue planes, and you will require meticulous surgical dissection. Additionally, there is usually a need to harvest nasal-septal cartilage to support your tip and reconstruct your nose, and there may be a paucity of usable nasal cartilage after your previous Rhinoplasty Surgery. Sometimes your ear cartilage may be harvested and used for successful surgical nasal rejuvenation.
Well-performed Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery can dramatically improve your self-confidence, improve your breathing, and help you look and feel your best by providing a more attractive and harmonious facial appearance.
"Could I benefit from a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?"
If you have visible imperfections and irregularities from previous Rhinoplasty Surgery, you may obtain significant and permanent improvement with Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty procedures utilizing Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results. Minimizing the appearance of Rhinoplasty irregularities, without additional surgery and downtime, will be most rewarding for you, if you're an appropriate candidate. Imperfections in your bridge, tip, and nostrils are often dramatically improved during an office visit, typically with no downtime. If you have asymmetrical tip cartilages, that are bothersome after Rhinoplasty, these may be camouflaged with Silikon-1000. A pinched tip may be widened, and high nostrils may be lowered. All while avoiding Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery.
