What is Revision Rhinoplasty?Posted on September 8, 2022
Complex surgical procedures, such as rhinoplasty, can result in complications even when performed by the best of surgeons. Patients may experience difficulty breathing or dissatisfaction with the appearance of their nose following rhinoplasty, and require a secondary surgery to remediate issues. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides revision rhinoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
Am I a Candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty?
You may be a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty if:
- You are dissatisfied with results from your primary rhinoplasty
- You are experiencing new issues from your primary rhinoplasty
- Concerns meant to be resolved from your primary rhinoplasty, such as breathing issues, were not addressed
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim will create a customized surgical plan for your revision rhinoplasty best suited for you and your goals.
Revision rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves the use of general anesthesia. Incisions are made in small and discreet areas and bone and cartilage grafts are used to reshape the nose. This procedure is typically completed between one to four hours, depending on the extent of revision needed.
Patients should expect to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several days following revision rhinoplasty. Recovery will require at least a week off from normal daily activities, and strenuous work and sports must be avoided for many weeks.
