What is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty is a version of rhinoplasty that is ideal for patients who have already chosen rhinoplasty with another plastic surgeon but are not satisfied with their results. Rhinoplasty patients often wish for further changes to their size, shape, and projection, such as modifying a bulbous tip more. Some feel they have difficulty breathing after a previous rhinoplasty procedure has been performed. Dr. Albert, an experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeon, frequently performs corrective rhinoplasty to improve upon previously performed operations and can help you achieve the desired outcome. If you’d like to learn more about how revision rhinoplasty in NYC can help you, our team is here to help. Dissatisfaction with the results of a surgical procedure can be upsetting, so Dr. Albert and his team will work closely with you to create results that restore your peace of mind and appearance. To get started, contact us at our NYC office and schedule your consultation today.

Does Revision Rhinoplasty Have to be Open? Answered by Dr. Albert

closed vs open Rhinoplasty diagram

"A common misconception is that complex revision rhinoplasty can only be performed open. This is not the case. I perform 100% of rhinoplasty closed whether a patient has had 1 rhinoplasty before or 5. There are no maneuvers or techniques that can be done open that can't be done closed, and performing these procedures closed allows for less bruising, swelling, and overall downtime while minimizing some risks that come with open rhinoplasty."

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.

How Often Do People Need a Revision Rhinoplasty?

Per studies, it's estimated that between 5% to 15% of rhinoplasty procedures may require revision. While rhinoplasty is generally considered a safe and effective procedure for enhancing the appearance and function of the nose, there are instances where patients may not achieve their desired results or experience complications that necessitate revision surgery. One notable example is the case of Priyanka Chopra, a prominent Hollywood actress, who reportedly underwent rhinoplasty that did not yield the desired outcome. Despite her initial hopes for cosmetic improvement, the procedure resulted in an outcome that was perceived as less favorable by both the actress and the public.

How Can I Ensure I Have a Successful Procedure?

Factors contributing to the need for revision rhinoplasty may include inadequate communication between the patient and surgeon regarding expectations, unrealistic aesthetic goals, surgical technique, or unexpected healing responses.

Patients considering revision rhinoplasty should have realistic expectations regarding the outcome and understand that the healing process may take time. Open communication with Dr. Albert, thorough preoperative discussions, and a clear understanding of the goals are essential for a successful revision rhinoplasty experience.

Primary, Secondary, and Revision Rhinoplasty: What Are the Differences?

  • Primary rhinoplasty: This refers to the initial or first-time nasal surgery performed on a patient who has not undergone any previous nasal surgeries.
  • Secondary Rhinoplasty: This term typically refers to a planned follow-up surgery after the initial rhinoplasty, often performed to fine-tune or adjust the results of the primary procedure.
  • Revision Rhinoplasty: This is a broader term that encompasses any nasal surgery performed after a previous rhinoplasty, regardless of the reason.

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.

What Are Some Common Concerns to Revision Rhinoplasty?

Considerations for secondary and revision rhinoplasty surgeries involve managing scar tissue and altered anatomy from previous procedures, potential challenges in cartilage availability for reconstruction, addressing functional issues such as breathing difficulties, the importance of skilled surgeons, and the significance of preoperative planning. A study conducted by the Aesthetic Society highlights some of these complexities of secondary and revision rhinoplasty.

What All Can Be Corrected with Revision Rhinoplasty?

An expert revision rhinoplasty surgeon can offer the chance to fix various 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.

How is the Revision Rhinoplasty Consultation Done?

Rhinoplasty is never performed in the same way twice. This is primarily because 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 Dr. Albert gets to know your physical characteristics and cosmetic goals, Dr. Albert will work with you to develop a customized surgical plan. 

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

What Occurs During a Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure?

During your corrective rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Albert will make incisions according to your surgical 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.)

What Results Can I Expect After My Revision Rhinoplasty?

Most patients find that they’re able to return to work after about 10 days, though it can take up to three or four weeks for your bruising and swelling to subside completely. 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.

Are There Any Risks to My Procedure?

Choosing Dr. Albert for your revision rhinoplasty ensures expert care and attention to minimize potential risks. With Dr. Albert's expertise and meticulous approach, you can trust in a positive surgical experience. While all surgeries carry risks, including infection, bleeding, swelling, and adverse reactions to anesthesia, Dr. Albert's commitment to patient safety and satisfaction ensures that concerns are addressed with utmost care, leading to beautiful, natural-looking results.
