Many people are not happy with the nose that they were born with, and they want to make a change that will help them to change the way that they look. Rhinoplasty has been one of the most popular procedures available today, and there have been many people who have undergone the surgery and who were happy with the results. However, that’s not to say that everyone was happy with their rhinoplasty. In some cases, they felt the procedure did not give them the nose that they wanted, or perhaps there were complications. Thankfully, revision rhinoplasty can provide the help that these patients need.
Revision rhinoplasty is a secondary rhinoplasty procedure that is performed for patients who need to have an improvement to the cosmetic appearance of their new nose or to improve the function of their nose. The patients have already undergone an initial rhinoplasty, and this is essentially going to correct any issues that may be present.
Who Could Use Revision Rhinoplasty?
There are many people who may have had an issue with their previous rhinoplasty and who may need to have a revision rhinoplasty. One of the issues that might require attention is those who have had an under-correction. This means that there may be some additional changes that will need to be made to the nose, that were not made with the initial rhinoplasty. Additionally, there are those who have had overcorrection and who need to have additional cartilage grafts added to the nose to ensure that it looks correct.
Of course, functional problems, as mentioned, could require revision rhinoplasty. If there are issues such as a deviated septum that were not corrected, or that was caused in the previous procedure, the revision rhinoplasty is there to correct it.
Is the Procedure Difficult?
One of the common questions that people ask regarding this type of procedure is how difficult it tends to be and how long it will take. Of course, you have to remember that all patients are going to have different needs, so there is no concrete answer that will apply to everyone. The procedure will require general anesthesia, and it can generally be completed in about four hours depending on the patient. Most of the time, patients are going to be cleared to go back to work in about a week, and the swelling and bruising are typically going to go away in a couple of weeks at most. Again, it will depend on the patient.
