WHat is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgeries performed today, and patients are usually happy with their results. However, if you're not pleased with your appearance or you have trouble breathing after surgery, Platinum Plastic Surgery can perform a revision rhinoplasty procedure in Las Vegas, NV. Revision rhinoplasty (or secondary nose surgery) can make minor improvements to your nose shape or require a more extensive approach depending on your goals.

You don't have to live with less-than-stellar rhinoplasty results or deal with breathing issues after surgery. Schedule an appointment with plastic surgeon Dr. Chris Costa for more information about revision rhinoplasty. Dr. Costa has years of experience performing both primary and revision rhinoplasty procedures and will make sure you achieve the best outcomes possible. Call to schedule a rhinoplasty assessment and learn how to get started today.

Who is a Candidate for REVISION RHINOPLASTY?

Candidates for a revision rhinoplasty want to improve the results of previous nasal surgery. A number of factors can contribute to a less-than-satisfactory outcome, including small bumps or asymmetrical results. A revision may also be needed if you had an injury or accident that has impacted the function or appearance of your nose after the initial procedure.

Depending on the results of the original rhinoplasty and your goals for surgery, a revision procedure can be significantly more challenging and complicated. This is why it's important to choose a plastic surgeon like Dr. Costa, who has years of training and a special interest in revision rhinoplasty. We can ensure better surgical results.

What to expect during REVISION RHINOPLASTY

Dr. Costa will develop a treatment plan based on your concerns and goals prior to performing revision rhinoplasty. Surgery is usually completed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. The duration of your procedure depends on the extent of the repair and the techniques used. For example, an open technique (the most common approach for revision rhinoplasty) requires separating the skin, cartilage, and bone, allowing for maximum visibility. Revision rhinoplasty may also require a cartilage or bone graft to help reconstruct and strengthen the framework of the nose. 

How long is recovery after REVISION RHINOPLASTY?

You may need to wear a nose splint for several days after revision rhinoplasty. Patients will need to attend a follow-up appointment to remove the stitches and splint. This appointment also allows Dr. Costa to make sure healing is going as it should. Since a revision rhinoplasty can be more challenging than the first procedure, recovery can take a bit longer. You will likely experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort for approximately two weeks. Dr. Costa can discuss post-operative instructions that are designed to help you feel more comfortable after revision rhinoplasty.

Revision rhinoplasty FAQs

How long should I wait for revision rhinoplasty?

It's hard to say how long you should wait before considering revision rhinoplasty. Because it takes months for the initial swelling to subside and the tissue to fully heal, you may not have a proper idea about your final results until one year after surgery. Dr. Costa can perform an exam after the initial procedure to determine what changes can be made.

What risks are associated with revision rhinoplasty?

The most common complications of revision rhinoplasty surgery include a prolonged recovery or asymmetrical results. These complications increase if your revision procedure is performed too soon after the initial surgery. The team at Platinum Plastic Surgery can review any potential concerns and how to best prepare for revision rhinoplasty.

What activities should I avoid after revision rhinoplasty?

Patients in Las Vegas, NV, should avoid any activities that could potentially cause trauma or injury to the nose until it is fully recovered. This includes contact sports and strenuous exercises like weightlifting, as well as pushing or pressing down on the treatment area. These activities could lead to poor or unwanted results from revision rhinoplasty.
