Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is when a patient undergoes a secondary procedure on the nose to correct or further refine the results of a previous rhinoplasty.

This type of plastic surgery is more challenging and the results can be less predictable.  It is important that patients wait at least one year from their last operation before having a revision rhinoplasty.

Revision rhinoplasty may require the use of cartilage grafts, where cartilage can be from the patient’s own ear or rib cartilage.  Some patients may opt to use donor cartilage.  This will come at an added cost.

Common reasons patients opt to have revision rhinoplasty include; a residual hump, asymmetries in the tip or bridge, steps and irregularities and breathing issues.
