Did the Results of Your First Rhinoplasty Come Out Unnatural or Unpleasing to the Eye?
Restore Optimal Appearance & Function with Revision Rhinoplasty
Revision rhinoplasty is a complex procedure that’s specifically designed to undo the negative effects of past procedures. The procedure is most commonly done to address aesthetic concerns such as the outward shape or size of the nose. However, many patients seek out revision procedures to address functional problems such as breathing difficulties. If your initial rhinoplasty didn’t produce the results you want, it might be time to think about revision rhinoplasty at Stein Plastic Surgery.
How Does Revision Rhinoplasty Work?
Revision rhinoplasties can be one of the most challenging cosmetic surgical procedures. Using advanced surgical techniques, Dr. Stein meticulously works to preserve both optimal aesthetics and function. Dr. Stein uses IV sedation for all rhinoplasty procedures. Revision rhinoplasties are commonly done on an outpatient basis allowing you to go home the same day.
No two rhinoplasty procedures are done the same way. Dr. Stein customizes treatment plans according to your individual needs and goals. When possible, Dr. Stein places incisions either solely within the inside of the nostril or in the natural creases and folds of the skin. Most revision rhinoplasties, however, do require an open rhinoplasty approach.
Am I a Good Candidate For Revision Rhinoplasty?
If you’re bothered by external deformities or breathing difficulties after rhinoplasty, you may be a good fit for revision procedures. As a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Stein routinely performs these secondary procedures with exceptional outcomes. In most cases, Dr. Stein may request that you wait for at least 6 months after healing from your original surgery but in most cases, it is best to wait a full year before revision surgery.
Ideally, patients should be non-smokers and in otherwise good general health before considering rhinoplasty. Men and women thinking about secondary procedures should have realistic expectations. Revision surgeries may not completely correct all cosmetic deformities. Dr. Stein will help prepare you for what to expect prior to treatment.

What Results Will I See?
Some immediate improvements can be seen right away. An optimal outcome will gradually occur as any post-surgical swelling and bruising subside. While it can take up to 1-year to see the final results from your procedure, many patients are happy with the outcome in just a few weeks. In some cases, additional procedures may be necessary to achieve your desired outcomes. Dr. Stein will assess your individual concerns before determining what’s right for you.
What is the Recovery Like?
You can typically expect the recovery from your secondary procedures to be similar to that of your initial rhinoplasty. Most patients tend to feel comfortable returning to many of their normal activities in about 7 days. Social downtime after revision rhinoplasties is about 2 weeks depending on the extent of your procedure as well as incision placement. Dr. Stein will help customize a post-operative recovery plan to best facilitate a smooth and easy healing process.
