What You Need to Know about Revision Rhinoplasty

You’ve had your first Rhinoplasty procedure, and when the cast came off, you didn’t see the significant changes you wanted, or your nose was worse than before! In the unfortunate case that your rhinoplasty procedure left you with unsatisfying results, you may be feeling depressed and frustrated. It might be time to schedule a revision rhinoplasty, but there are some things you should do first.

Give Your Rhinoplasty Results Time

Before jumping into another rhinoplasty in Cleveland, make sure you’ve given your first one enough time to heal. It can take up to a year or longer for swelling to completely disappear and you may not see accurate results until then. If a correction does need to be made, you will want to give your scar tissue time to soften so that your surgeon can fix your nose more effectively. Getting a revision rhinoplasty too soon could make the situation worse.

Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

If you ended up with a botched rhinoplasty, returning to the same surgeon is not recommended, no matter the cost. Because a revision rhinoplasty is a more complicated procedure, it is important to find a surgeon that is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with the adequate amount of education and experience. If you are in the Cleveland or Akron, OH area, consider Dr. Nicholas Husni, a board-certified surgeon, for your revision rhinoplasty procedure.

Revision Rhinoplasty is A Different Procedure

Since you’ve already had a rhinoplasty done, you’ve probably already been over what the procedure will be like. However, with a revision rhinoplasty, the procedure can take a little longer as your surgeon works to restore your nose and correct the problem. Often during a revision rhinoplasty, more cartilage needs to be added instead of removed. If more structure is needed, your surgeon might take extra cartilage from another part of your body to reshape the nose and open the airway.

If you are unsatisfied with the results of a previous rhinoplasty and are ready for a revision procedure, contact Neo Aesthetic Institute in the Cleveland and Akron, OH area to schedule your consultation.
