Who Needs Revision Rhinoplasty?
Individuals elect to have a second nose job for a number of different reasons. A patient who is not fully satisfied with their nose surgery can opt to have it revised with revision rhinoplasty at Miami Plastic Surgery. There are some things to consider before scheduling your second surgery that every post rhinoplasty patient should review.
Common Reasons for A Second Revision Rhinoplasty
Some of the most common reasons for a secondary rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty include:
- Thick, Fused Scar Tissue
- Asymmetry Differences
- Nasal Obstruction that Limits Breathing
- Collapse of Nasal Cartilage
- Dissatisfaction with Surgical Results
- Not Enough Post Op Changes
- Aesthetics that are Unsatisfactory
Along with these scenarios, patients might decide on another nose job due to another injury involving the face and/or nose, shifting of previously revised cartilage and more.
How Long Do I Need to Wait Before Getting Second Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure?
The full effects from any type of nasal cosmetic surgery can take up to 18 months to be seen. Due to this, it is wise to wait until the surgical site is fully healed before going back into surgery. Always discuss your after surgery expectations with your selected plastic surgeon to ensure that you both are on the same page.
Are There any Considerations That Can Affect a Nose Revision Rhinoplasty Result?
There are a number of important considerations that may affect the results from a nose revision rhinoplasty operation. The amount, location and thickness of any scar tissue, the amount of nasal cartilage left, extent of intended surgical site and others. This nose surgery can be done with an open or closed approach, and a skilled surgeon that is very experienced with these revision procedures will determine the best surgical approach prior to the start of surgery. Other considerations include the thickness of the facial skin over the nose, appearance of nasal humps, full face proportions, ethnic influences and body size measurements.
There are lots of variations in people's noses that help to define culture, race, ancestry and more. What may be a pleasing sized and shaped nose in the Middle East could be very different from the average noses of people living in an Asian country.
