Revision (Secondary) Rhinoplasty is performed subsequent to another nose surgery.
Patients who are unhappy with their cosmetic results or/& have functional problems with the nose (difficulty in nasal breathing) after primary rhinoplasty may require revision rhinoplasty.
Revision Rhinoplasty is more difficult than Primary Rhinoplasty, becuase in the initial surgery too much bone or cartilage have been removed. The scar tissue is another challenging factor during Revision surgery.
Full recovery after Revision Rhinoplasty needs several months to take place and changes may continue for up to one year.
All the “pre & post ” operation considerations that are mentioned for Primary Rhinoplasty should be considerd after Revision Rhinoplasty.
If Revision Rhinoplasty is done by a right surgeon, it can give the patient a sense of “self- confidence”.
Dr. Maryam Sharafi is an experienced surgeon in this field and pride herself on providing patients with natural and beautiful results and improving their nasal breathing.
