Revision Rhinoplasty

The surgical operation applied to those who have had rhinoplasty surgery but need to have rhinoplasty again for different reasons is called “Revision Rhinoplasty”.

In recent years, rhinoplasty is one of the most frequently performed revision aesthetic surgeries in the world. The reason is that the nose is in the middle of the face and the smallest problems are easily noticed directly.

The reasons for revision rhinoplasty are listed below:

it may stayed nasal nose

If there is a collapse at the tip of the nose

if the patient cannot breathe comfortably

If the curvature of the nose still continues

If the tip of the nose is raised too much

Inadequate skin and bones of the patient

If the patient has had a blow to the nose after the surgery


Situations such as the above may cause revision rhinoplasty.


So what are we doing?

Revision rhinoplasty is more difficult than a normal rhinoplasty. First of all, as a physician, we need to examine the patient who applied for revision rhinoplasty in detail. Patients generally imagine their noses to be completely different from their first surgery, but our advice is to delay these thoughts a little bit until they are examined. It will definitely be more beautiful after the surgery than before, this is inevitable. We only recommend that they do not raise their expectations too much. This is because it is more difficult to make a bad nose perfect. The situation you're dreaming of here is just the next level up. Of course, in some patients, the results of revision surgery can give better results than the first surgery. To summarize, the patient's surgical history, the patient's bone structure and the changes in the patient's nose are the most important conditions that will determine the outcome of revision surgery. But you don't need to be afraid, the solution is always available.
