Revision Rhinoplasty

Further changes/augmentation or reduction by same surgeon in a previously operated nose is termed as revision rhinoplaty. Sometimes a primary rhinoplasty procedure doesn't produce the desired aesthetic or functional result or was unable to completely achieve its corrective goal. Revision rhinoplasty is the term used to describe secondary or subsequent rhinoplasty procedures. These subsequent procedures are performed to improve breathing issues and/or correct poor aesthetics - most often due to the patient not being pleased with the first results or some other adverse effect of the first procedure. Structural support of the nose with patient's own cartilage is the single most important aspect of revision rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty has a higher revision rate than any other cosmetic procedure.
