Plastic surgeons agree that rhinoplasty is a difficult surgery. Even if the surgeon who performs the procedure is well skilled and experienced, time and unforeseen occurrences can happen that affect the outcome of the surgery. A patient may be left with external deformities or breathing difficulties. This is because the nose is a complicated structure. And there are different factors that affect the way that a person’s nose heals. If you have had rhinoplasty in the past but were not pleased with the results, why not come to Florida for revision rhinoplasty?
The Need for an Experienced Surgeon
When you are coming in for a surgical procedure to correct rhinoplasty, it is important that the surgeon you visit is extremely skilled. When there is a skilled surgeon who is experienced in revision rhinoplasty, people are willing to travel from all over the country in order to be treated by this doctor. Many individuals looking to have the rhinoplasty surgery corrected have problems with breathing and are unhappy with the external shape of their nose. During your initial consultation with us, our experienced surgeons will be able to work with you, look at the original procedure, and determine whether or not you are a candidate for a revision surgery.
What to Expect during the Procedure
In most cases, revision rhinoplasty is performed using general anesthesia. Pinpoint incisions are made to expose the bone and cartilage of the nose. Then, the bone and cartilage of the nose are reshaped. Emphasis is put on preserving the breathing function. In cases where a previous procedure compromised the breathing function of the nose, the restorative procedure will focus on restoring lost function.
Once the procedure is done, you’re going to have a few days of recovery. Modern day advanced techniques have minimized the discomfort and the recovery process after the procedure.
The purpose of the surgery is to improve the shape and contours of your nose. It could be that your original procedure did not create the results you expected. Or it could be that functional issues that did not exist before the surgery are now present after the surgery. During the revision procedure, any issue with the first procedure that the patient wants to correct will be examined and reviewed.
Common Conditions That Are Treated during Revision Rhinoplasty
One common condition that is addressed during this procedure is asymmetry of the nose tip. If the first procedure was not done correctly, the patient could walk away with a nose that has a pinched appearance. They may even have a pointy nose, which is the result of cartilage protrusion.
Another common issue is a saddled nose. This is where the bridge of the nose looks like someone scooped it out. Another deformity that may be corrected is when too much of the middle third cartilage was removed by the surgeon who did the first procedure.
