I have had one rhinoplasy revision back in 1995. I still have a deviated septum as well as a torn septum. I have difficulty breathing and I am not happy with how my nose looks. I am looking for a doctor who can help in both areas. Any suggestions for the Las Vegas or CA area? Thanks!

Revision Rhinoplasty Specialist
You are smart to look for a rhinoplasty surgeon who is experienced and does a lot of revision work. Ask what percentage of his/her rhinoplasties are revisions. There are many excellnt surgeons in the Las Vegas/ Southern California area.
Revision Rhinoplasty options
It sounds like your revision rhinoplasty goals are:
- to improve your nasal obstruction and function,
- as well as to improve the appearance of your nose.
There are excellent surgeons in both Facial Plastic Surgery and Plastic Surgery
in Las Vegas, Northern and Southern California;
- But first, you may consider scheduling a consult with someone within driving distance to your home with experience in treating both cosmetic and functional septorhinoplasty.
- Having your surgeon nearby can be helpful if you have concerns or questions after surgery.
- When you go for the consult, it can be helpful to bring a copy of your operative report from 1995 if possible.
Rollin Daniels in the Orange County area is considered a rhinoplasty expert and you may want to consider scheduling am appointment with him

Revision nasal surgery can address septal perforation and outward appearance
It is a great idea to find someone who can address both your functional breathing concerns/septal issues and external nasal appearance. Very often improving the external features of one's nose can help improve nasal breathing and function (they are not mutually exclusive).
A surgeon specializing in rhinoplasty is certainly recommended and a good place to start is finding a board certified facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon. Not all board certified surgeons do much rhinoplasty work, though, so make sure they have experience in revision rhinoplasty. Check their before and after results to make sure their aesthetic matches your own.
