Revision Rhinoplasty: Is it for you?
If you’ve come to this section, perhaps you’ve already had a rhinoplasty that looked great until you started getting shrink wrappage of your tip, pinched nostrils, collapsed nose, and problems breathing. Unfortunately, you are not alone. This is often the result of an overly aggressive surgery or scar contracture during healing. Across the nation, approximately 5-10% of rhinoplasty patients require a touch up or revision…the question is how much of a touch up. If you’ve had surgery by someone who wasn’t adequately trained in rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty is frequent. But even in the hands of the best rhinoplasty surgeons, touch ups are sometimes necessary. It’s important to keep in mind that rhinoplasty surgery requires meticulous attention from the surgeon to both functional and cosmetic aspects. Rhinoplasty surgery can be challenging, so you need to choose your surgeon wisely, which is why you need a face specialist.
Choosing a Facial Plastic Surgeon for Your Revision Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty surgery can be challenging because the nose has to be thought of as a 3-dimensional structure with careful attention to functional and cosmetic components. Surgeons can only avoid pitfalls if they know what they are and purposefully avoid them. Your surgeon needs to be up to date on rhinoplasty maneuvers. Unfortunately, techniques used even as little as a few years ago are now known to cause disastrous results and are avoided. Having spent additional training in rhinoplasty, Dr. Lee’s knowledge of rhinoplasty is advanced many years ahead of those who have not had specialized training. Nowdays, the concept is that sometimes less is more. Having perfected rhinoplasty surgery in the heart of Beverly Hills, Dr. Lee practices surgical techniques that lead to an outstanding result. Dr. Lee’s conservative cartilage excision and repositioning techniques with sturdy structural grafting and appropriately placed suturing techniques will achieve your goals.
Revision Rhinoplasty Approach
While there are instances where a revision rhinoplasty can be performed using a closed approach, many situations require an open rhinoplasty approach. This depends on your goals.
