When Should I Seek Revision Rhinoplasty?Posted on October 26, 2022
Rhinoplasty is a popular procedure for individuals seeking to reshape or enhance their nose, but is a complex surgery that may result in complications. A revisionary surgery may be necessary for patients that experience functional issues, such as trouble breathing, or that have unsatisfactory results following their initial rhinoplasty. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides revision rhinoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
Why Seek Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty is most common for patients who are not happy with their aesthetic results from their initial surgery. Revisionary surgery may also be necessary if complications arise, such as difficulty with breathing. To improve your chances of a satisfactory result, choose a board certified plastic surgeon that is adequately trained to perform your procedure.
When Should I Seek Revision Rhinoplasty?
Before you seek revision rhinoplasty, you must make a full recovery from your initial surgery. It is important to note that swelling may not completely subside for six months to a full year, which can make it difficult to see your final results. If swelling has completely resolved and you are unhappy with your results, it is a good time to begin considering revision rhinoplasty. If you begin experiencing functional issues following your surgery, it is important to notify your surgeon right away. During your follow up appointments, be sure to discuss any dissatisfaction you have so your surgeon can help you assess if you are still experiencing swelling.
Your Surgeon Matters
To increase your chances of favorable results, choose a board certified plastic surgeon. Board certification is only awarded to surgeons that have completed comprehensive training and have demonstrated proven expertise in their field. During your research, be mindful that plastic surgeons also undergo more training than cosmetic surgeons. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides revision rhinoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
