Many patients have heard of the rhinoplasty procedure – but what is a revision rhinoplasty? In this article, we are going to discuss the revision rhinoplasty procedure and when it can be a good option for patients.

What is Revision Rhinoplasty?

A revision rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty procedure performed on a patient who has previously had one or more rhinoplasty procedures. So why would a patient want to have more than one rhinoplasty procedure?

The most common reason is that they are not happy with the results of their previous rhinoplasty. The nose is a complex structure, and rhinoplasty is perhaps the most difficult aesthetic procedure that facial plastic surgeons perform.

Tips for Avoiding a Revision Rhinoplasty

No patient wants to have to go under the knife more than they have to for any procedure – especially rhinoplasty. Here are some tips for getting things done right the first time and avoiding a revision rhinoplasty procedure:

  • Communicate effectively with your surgeon. Prior to your procedure, tell your surgeon what your goals are for the procedure. Are you looking to reshape the look of your nose? Are you hoping to fix a functional issue? Open communication with your surgeon is a must.
  • Follow your surgeon’s pre and post-op instructions. Failure to follow these instructions can put the success of the procedure in jeopardy.
