Nose jobs have quickly become a prominent cosmetic procedure in the United States. As one of the more prominent facial features, even minor corrections can completely change your appearance and confidence. 

Some people, however, find themselves unhappy with the results of their rhinoplasty procedures. At Stein Plastic Surgery, Dr. Stein performs revision rhinoplasties to help his patients achieve their desired results. 

What is Revision Rhinoplasty?

As nose jobs become more common, some people have found themselves unhappy with the outcomes of their rhinoplasty. Some patients’ results are less than expected or worse than before surgery. Others face medical concerns such as a deviated septum from collapsed cartilage tissue.

Revision rhinoplasty restores your nose from the negative results of past procedures for aesthetic or functional concerns. Your procedure can bring you closer to your desired results or correct a problem created by your initial surgery.

When Can I Get Revision Rhinoplasty?

The earliest patients can receive revision rhinoplasty is six months after their initial surgery, but it is best to wait at least a year. Your nose needs to heal from the initial nose job before Dr. Stein can restore your appearance. 

Before your surgery, please discuss your medical history, date of initial surgery, cosmetic and functional concerns, desired outcomes, and expectations with Dr. Stein. If you have a cosmetic problem, please bring photos of noses that match your desired outcome.

What are the Benefits of Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty helps you achieve your desired results with a similar recovery time as other rhinoplasty procedures–a week of downtime and two weeks of social rest. Some of the other benefits include:

  • Correction of nasal deformities
  • Maximized nasal function
  • Improvement to your overall appearance
  • Boosts your self-confidence

No two procedures are the same with Dr. Stein. He personalizes each surgery to fit your needs and goals.

What are the Risks of Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty is known for being one of the most complex cosmetic procedures. The nose is a prominent feature and is sneakily complex. Some of the challenges with revision rhinoplasty include:

  • Scar tissue blocking access
  • Lack of cartilage in the nose
  • Nasal obstruction

The scar tissue can interfere with incision placement and cause difficulties in repairing damaged structures. If there is insufficient cartilage in the nose, a donor site is necessary for nasal restoration.

A qualified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Stein should only perform revision rhinoplasty. With double board certification and over 26 years of experience, Dr. Stein understands the complexities of the nose and the best techniques to ensure your safety and quality results.

Should I Get Revision Rhinoplasty?

If you are unhappy with the cosmetic or functional results of a prior rhinoplasty, you may be a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty. You should wait at least six months after your initial surgery to receive revision rhinoplasty and have realistic expectations for your results.

Dr. Stein provided excellent outcomes. The resulted look natural and are consistent with what was explained before the surgery. I recommend Dr. Stein to everyone.
