Aesthetic surgeries provide a fantastic opportunity for individuals to boost self-confidence, enhance their quality of life, and make desired changes to their appearance. Rhinoplasty is one of the most common and effective procedures among these operations. However, in some cases, the initial rhinoplasty may not fully meet the patient’s expectations or unforeseen complications may arise. Particularly, revision rhinoplasty, like other aesthetic procedures, has gained significant popularity recently.
Revision rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to correct, enhance, or modify the results of a previous rhinoplasty operation. After the first surgery, the patient’s expectations may not have been met, or complications could have emerged. In such cases, revision rhinoplasty offers patients a chance to achieve the desired results. Since revision rhinoplasty has critical implications, it is always performed by experts in the field.
Revision rhinoplasty can be applied to individuals who have previously undergone a rhinoplasty operation and have encountered one or more of the following situations:
Please note that revision rhinoplasty is typically recommended for those who have specific issues arising from a previous rhinoplasty and wish to address them.
Revision rhinoplasty is performed in cases where the structure of the nose has become more complex following the initial surgery, making the surgical procedure more challenging. Therefore, it is crucial for plastic surgeons performing this operation to have expertise and experience.
Before the surgery, the surgeon will carefully evaluate the patient and decide how the revision procedure will be conducted. Revision rhinoplasty can be performed using open or closed techniques. The surgeon will determine the most suitable approach based on the patient’s condition and needs.
