The need for revision rhinoplasty
- Posted on: Aug 15 2020
The rhinoplasty procedure is considered one of the most challenging facial plastic surgeries. This is because there are complications that can arise when a doctor with insufficient training and experience performs a procedure. Patients can experience complications such as difficulty breathing or an unusual nose shape following cosmetic surgery. In cases such as this, Dr. Wayne P. Foster and his team are pleased to provide patients with a second surgical procedure to revise the work that was previous done. This surgery is often referred to as “revision rhinoplasty.”
What happens during the revision rhinoplasty process and procedure?
First, patients of the Manasquan and Toms River, NJ area who are in need of revision rhinoplasty start by calling the office to schedule a consultation appointment and initial evaluation. During this appointment, patients should be open and honest about their aesthetic concerns and discuss with Dr. Wayne P. Foster the problems that have occurred since their original surgery. The doctor will then create a treatment plan to help patients achieve their desired goals. During this appointment, the surgical procedure is scheduled and patients make arrangements to arrive for their revision rhinoplasty.
The revision rhinoplasty procedure is performed with general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort and reduce any anxieties patients may have. Incisions are made in areas where scarring will be less noticeable, though in many cases, the incision areas may be internal. The doctor then addresses the shape and position of the cartilage and bone to improve breathing abilities and treat the areas of concern for the patient. After surgery, patients can expect approximately one week of swelling and bruising, but this often resolves on its own with time as the nose heals from the procedure.
