Will a revisional rhinoplasty achieve my desired results? (photo)
I'm looking for a revision rhinoplasty. I had one done last year that has caused no difference at all. I understand with me it is going to be a very complex procedure that will require very experienced hands . I have a huge bridge that has caused my nose to grow big overall. I know this miracle can change my life but do not know if this can be done

Revision rhinoplasty can involve making the nose smaller, more narrow, and shaving down any convexity to the bridge. The bridge can be shaved down to remove any hump that may be present. Virtual rhinoplasty software is available on our website link below along with our rhinoplasty photo gallery to give you an idea of what can be accomplished with the rhinoplasty procedure in our practice
Revision rhinoplasty for wide bridge can be done but you should see a very experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeon.
Revisional rhinoplasty is always more difficult than initial surgery. I recommend waiting at least one year prior to any revisions. Also men rhinoplasty are always more involved due to many factors, the size and shape of the bones are always much larger and thicker in men. Revisional surgery should help you but you have to do some research on a surgeon who is comfotablr operating on revisional noses.
These aspects can be addressed during a revision surgery.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds
of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the
plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a
sense of who can deliver the results.
