Is Revision Rhinoplasty Right for Me? By Patricia Berbari on April 09, 2013

Gatineau Revision Rhinoplasty CandidatesRhinoplasty is among the most transformative of all plastic surgery procedures offered today. It allows patients who are dissatisfied with the shape, size, or other elements of their noses to achieve changes as subtle or as dramatic as they desire. A patient may undergo rhinoplasty to achieve a smaller or larger nose, to alter the angle between the nose and the upper lip, to remove bumps from the nose, or to change the shape of the tip or bridge of the nose. Rhinoplasty may even be used to correct birth defects. Because the nose is the most prominent feature of the face, rhinoplasty can bring the facial features into more harmonious balance. But what happens when a patient undergoes rhinoplasty and is unhappy with the results?

Revision Rhinoplasty

Patients of our Gatineau plastic surgery center who are unhappy with the results of a previous rhinoplasty procedure may benefit from revision rhinoplasty. Revision rhinoplasty is performed when a patient is dissatisfied with the outcome of a previous rhinoplasty procedure. For our patients in Gatineau, revision rhinoplasty may be performed to address any problems created by the initial rhinoplasty procedure, including breathing difficulties.

We will not perform revision rhinoplasty for at least one year after the primary rhinoplasty procedure. When revision rhinoplasty is performed too soon after the primary rhinoplasty procedure, it can have a negative impact on the appearance and functionality of the nose. It can also take up to a year for the full results of rhinoplasty to develop, and it may also take up to a year for scar tissue to soften.

Are Rhinoplasty and Revision Rhinoplasty the Same?

While rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty are similar, revision rhinoplasty is a more complex surgery to perform than primary rhinoplasty. During the initial rhinoplasty procedure, bone and tissues are removed. This can make revision rhinoplasty more difficult to perform. The removal of bone and tissues during primary rhinoplasty may necessitate cartilage or bone grafting during revision rhinoplasty.

The presence of hardened scar tissue can also make the revision rhinoplasty procedure more difficult to perform than primary rhinoplasty. If the septum was altered or partially removed during the initial rhinoplasty procedure, it can make revision rhinoplasty more difficult. While the complexities of revision rhinoplasty can make the procedure more difficult to perform, the goal of revision rhinoplasty remains the same as that of primary rhinoplasty: to improve the appearance and functionality of the nose and to bring balance to the facial features.

Revision Rhinoplasty Candidates

The first step in determining whether you are an ideal candidate for revision rhinoplasty is to undergo a personal consultation with a qualified, experienced facial plastic surgeon that specializes in revision rhinoplasty such as Gatineau rhinoplasty surgeon Patricia Berbari. Not every patient who is dissatisfied with the results of a previous rhinoplasty procedure will be an ideal candidate for revision rhinoplasty. A patient that has significant scar tissue left behind from previous procedures may not be a candidate for revision rhinoplasty. Other factors that are considered when determining a patient’s candidacy for revision rhinoplasty is the number of procedures that patient has undergone in the past, the amount of nasal tissue remaining, and the patient’s needs and goals.

Typically, if you are in good health, have realistic expectations of the procedure and the outcome, and are unhappy with the results of a previous rhinoplasty procedure, you will be a candidate for revision rhinoplasty.
