Revision Rhinoplasty Overview

By RealSelf
Revision rhinoplasty addresses improper healing from nose surgery. Typically revision rhinoplasty requires cartilage to be harvested from the nasal septum and ear. These grafts are used to reconstruct the defect that could be causing breathing difficulty and/or a visual cosmetic problem.
Good to know: The unpredictability of secondary contraction of scar tissue and healing makes revision rhinoplasty a more complex procedure than the initial rhinoplasty.
