What is revision rhinoplasty, and when should a patient consider it?
- Posted on: Jul 15 2021
Patients who have had a rhinoplasty procedure, or a “nose job,” and have had an undesirable outcome may want to ask Dr. Wayne P. Foster of Foster MD about the benefits of undergoing revision rhinoplasty. The revision rhinoplasty procedure is a way of fixing past issues that have been performed and providing the patients with more satisfying results.
Why might a patient need revision rhinoplasty?
It can happen with any type of surgery, where a patient is dissatisfied with results. However, the face is the first impression you make to others, and if the central portion of the face, or the nose, has imperfections, it can upset the entire balance and harmony of one’s appearance. Below are just a few reasons why a patient might need revision rhinoplasty procedures:
- Poor results from inexperienced or unqualified plastic surgeon
- Changes to the nose during the healing process
- Too much or too little bone or cartilage removed
- Trauma or injury to the nose that compromises their final results
- Displacement of cartilage grafts
- Asymmetries in the shape and size of the nose
- Improper healing or noticeable scarring
- Obstruction of breathing
These potential issues may warrant the need for revision rhinoplasty procedures at Foster MD.
How to choose a qualified surgeon for your rhinoplasty procedure
To avoid many of the above issues, it is vital that patients do their research on their plastic surgeon and speak with them about any concerns they may have. Patients should have realistic expectations of what can be achieved with both rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty procedures. Dr. Wayne P. Foster is a well-respected facial plastic surgeon in his community with years of satisfied patients who have had surgical work done at his facility.
