Facial Plastic Surgery
Secondary rhinoplasty is a corrective nasal surgery that serves to alter the form and/or function of the nose after a previous rhinoplasty. Secondary aesthetic and reconstructive nasal re-shaping is indicated for cosmetic or functional deformities not properly treated or made worse from the primary operation. Some also refer to secondary rhinoplasty as “revision rhinoplasty.” This broader terminology can apply to rhinoplasty required beyond a secondary operation, such as a third or fourth operation.
Frequently Asked Questions
For most clients, it takes approximately six weeks for your nose to fully heal after a rhinoplasty.
Results vary person to person, and are greatly driven by both the medical and aesthetic outcomes we are targeting. If expectations are realistic the aim is for both a symmetrical well-proportioned nose, and resolution of medical conditions that were discussed.
• Nasal airway obstruction
• The collapse of cartilage or nasal bones
• Artificial cosmetic appearance to the nose (“overdone nose job”)
• Internal and external nasal valve collapse
• Worsened asymmetry
• Over reduction or inadequate reduction of dorsal height (bridge height/hump)
• Incomplete shaping (not enough of a cosmetic change)
• Excessive or inadequate tip projection
• Excessively narrowed nasal tip (“pinched tip”)
• Excessive internal and/or external scarring (thickened scar tissue)
