Correcting Rhinoplasty Results With Revision Rhinoplasty
POSTED ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 2020 AT 11:17 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi
If you are dissatisfied with your results following primary rhinoplasty, or if nasal deformities are preventing you from breathing efficiently, you may opt for revision rhinoplasty to correct your results. Revision rhinoplasty can reshape and correct asymmetries of the nose, enhance nose shape, and alleviate breathing problems caused by scar tissue or a deviated septum.
How Is Revision Rhinoplasty Performed?
Revision, or secondary rhinoplasty presents a greater set of challenges than primary rhinoplasty, as there is often scar tissue and insufficient cartilage within the nose. Internal scarring can narrow the airway, which will be sculpted and widened during your surgery.
Damaged cartilage can also create a lack of structural support in the nose, and in order to restore structure, cartilage may be removed from the ear, or less commonly, the rib.
Surgical revision rhinoplasty may be performed using the closed or open rhinoplasty techniques, depending on the correction required. In the closed technique, all incisions are made inside the nostrils, while with the open technique, an additional incision is made across the columella (the small tissue that links the nasal tip to the nasal base). These methods minimize the development of further scar tissue.
Non-surgical revision rhinoplasty utilizes non-invasive cosmetic fillers to enhance nose size and shape for those who are not experiencing challenges with breathing, and want to supplement the results of their primary rhinoplasty.
Revision Rhinoplasty Recovery
Immediately following revision rhinoplasty, strenuous activities such as bending over, exercise, and housework should be avoided.
Those who undergo non-surgical revision rhinoplasty can return to their daily activities immediately following the procedure.
