When Should Revision Rhinoplasty be Considered?

Rhinoplasty is an incredibly popular cosmetic procedure, but it’s relatively common to encounter patients who are unhappy with the results of a previous surgery for whatever reason. In some cases, patients might find that their rhinoplasty results don’t complement their face or contribute to a sense of facial harmony in the way that they had hoped. In other cases, they might find that their breathing ability has not been restored to the degree that they had anticipated. Dr. Mark Albert is here to help in either case and will perform New York revision rhinoplasty in a way that sees you meeting your goals and enjoying a nose that is right for you.

What all can be Corrected with Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty offers the chance to fix issues from previous nose jobs that may still bother you. This includes things like fixing any lumps or bumps left over, making sure both sides of your nose look even, and addressing any problems with how well you can breathe through your nose. If your first nose job didn't give you the results you wanted, revision rhinoplasty can help you get closer to the look you're hoping for. Dr. Albert can work with you to understand your concerns and make sure your revision surgery helps you feel more confident about your nose.

Can Other Procedures be Combined with Revision Rhinoplasty?

Yes, other procedures can often be combined with revision rhinoplasty to address multiple concerns at once and achieve comprehensive facial harmony. Commonly combined procedures include:

Dr. Albert will assess your unique needs and goals during the consultation to determine the most appropriate combination of procedures to achieve your desired aesthetic outcomes while ensuring optimal safety and recovery.

How is the Revision Rhinoplasty Consultation Done?

Revision rhinoplasty is never performed in the same way twice. This is primarily because of the fact that this surgery is highly individualized, with a treatment plan that will be customized according to the specific issues you’d like to overcome and the results you’re most interested in seeing. Once he gets to know your physical characteristics and cosmetic goals, Dr. Albert will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan. 

During your consultation, he’ll explain everything about your upcoming surgery and what you can expect to experience, while also giving you detailed information about the aftercare process and more. This gives us the ability to address any questions or concerns that you might have, so you can enjoy sustained peace of mind as you get ready to enjoy the exciting outcome of your revision rhinoplasty surgery in New York City.

What Occurs During a Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure?

During your corrective rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Albert will make incisions according to your treatment plan, utilizing the closed scarless rhinoplasty technique. While this approach to nose surgery may be a little more complicated, it’s also better for the patient in a number of ways. Not only does this technique avoid the need for any visible post-surgical scarring, but it also leaves the tissues surrounding the treatment area undisturbed for a more brief and comfortable recovery experience.

Dr. Albert is proud to have developed what is known as the "limited incision scarless rhinoplasty" technique. This approach to revision rhinoplasty involves the placement of fewer incisions than regular closed and open rhinoplasty. For the patient, this means that you'll experience a higher level of comfort during the experience, with minimized swelling after the procedure is over and reduced downtime, as well.

Your procedure will likely take between one and two hours to complete, and Dr. Albert will ensure that you know exactly what to expect from the procedure. Revision rhinoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure. Once we’ve completed your surgery at our AAAASF-accredited operating center, you’ll be able to return home and rest comfortably (though you will need a friend to drive you and help you out for the first day, as your anesthesia will be in the process of wearing off.)

How Soon can I Have my Revision Done?

The timing for a revision rhinoplasty varies depending on individual circumstances and the extent of healing from the original procedure. Generally, it's advisable to wait at least a year after the initial rhinoplasty to allow the nose to fully heal and the swelling to subside. This waiting period allows for a more accurate assessment of the results and ensures that any adjustments made during the revision surgery are based on stable tissue. Consulting with Dr. Albert will provide personalized guidance on the ideal timing for your revision rhinoplasty, ensuring optimal outcomes.

What Results can I Expect after my Revision Rhinoplasty?

We’ll provide you with everything you need to stay comfortable as you recover, and our team will be available to you at all times should you have any questions or concerns.

We’ll be sure to schedule follow-up appointments so that we can ensure that you are staying comfortable and healing properly, and to address any issues that might arise during the healing process. Most patients are able to notice their final results after about five or six weeks, at which point you’ll absolutely love your new look.
