REVISION RHINOPLASTY– NEWPORT BEACH, CA –
Unhappy with the results of your previous rhinoplasty? Revision rhinoplasty might just be what you need.
Revision rhinoplasty corrects nasal deformities or breathing difficulties from a prior rhinoplasty.
It may involve a minor correction of an external deformity. But in most cases, major reconstruction is required to restore both cosmesis and function. This often requires harvesting cartilage from a donor site, such as the ear and rib.
Are You a Good Candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty?
If you are unsatisfied with your nose’s appearance after a previous rhinoplasty, a revision procedure may provide you with a second chance to achieve your desired results.
You are considered a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty if you have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about your surgery.
The most common problems encountered during revision rhinoplasty include:
- Scooped nasal bridge from aggressive resection
- Pinched or collapsed nostrils often causing nasal obstruction
- Straightening a crooked nose
- Nasal tip that is too short or upturned, causing a piggy appearance
- A nose that is too wide or too narrow
- Hanging columella from insufficient tip work
- Persistent bulbous tip
Some patients require minimal contouring of the nasal bridge to produce their desired results. But most patients evaluated for revision rhinoplasty require complete reconstruction of the nasal bridge, septum, and/or nasal tip. This usually involves grafting material from outside the nose, including ear and/or rib cartilage.
In some cases, Dr. Razfar can use advanced techniques to utilize remaining grafting material from the back of the septum for revision rhinoplasty. This will eliminate the need to use donor cartilage and enhance recovery.
Revision rhinoplasty patients are often fearful of undergoing further procedures with significantly more prolonged recovery. After a thorough consultation, Dr. Razfar will outline his strategy in clear terms to improve your nose’s form and function.
Why Should You Choose Dr. Razfar as Your Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon?
Unlike your usual rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty is a much more complicated procedure as it results from an alteration in your nose’s normal anatomy.
Aside from not being satisfied with their primary rhinoplasty results, patients who get revision rhinoplasty often also have significant breathing issues due to inadequate structural support and overly aggressive surgery.
These are the reasons why it’s absolutely important to choose a surgeon who specializes in all types of revision rhinoplasty, from minor corrections to total nasal reconstructions.
Dr. Razfar is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon specializing in revision rhinoplasty.
