The unpredictability of secondary scar healing may make revision rhinoplasty a more complex procedure than the first one. LEARN MORE ›

32 Year Old Female, Open Revision Rhinoplasty - Shawnee, KS

When I decided to have my primary rhinoplasty I was told that complications can occur during healing. I acknowledged this but didn’t think it would actually happen.
