What Is Rhinoplasty Revision?

Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping, is one of the most prominent plastic surgeries among Denver, CO patients, most of whom are usually happy with their treatment outcomes. In some cases, however, patients may be dissatisfied with their new nose shape, or still have trouble breathing after primary rhinoplasty, and may require rhinoplasty revision to reach their cosmetic or functional goals. Performed by the Denver rhinoplasty experts at Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery, revision (or secondary) nose surgery can include small changes to enhance aesthetics or total reconstruction to reshape the nose. If you're unhappy following your initial nose reshaping surgery, schedule a visit with our Englewood, CO team to find out if revision rhinoplasty can help you achieve aesthetically pleasing results.

How Does Secondary rhinoplasty Work?

At Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery, our nose surgeons have years of training and advanced expertise in rhinoplasty. They deeply understand the complex anatomy of the nose and the intricacies associated with secondary nose surgery. Revision rhinoplasty may be performed when the cosmetic results from primary rhinoplasty are unsatisfactory, the nose doesn't heal properly, or a nasal obstruction interferes with breathing. This surgery is usually completed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia and may include tissue grafting in some cases. Since revision rhinoplasty is often more complex than the initial surgery, the recovery time may be expanded.

Am I A Candidate For Revision Rhinoplasty?

You may be an ideal candidate for secondary or revision rhinoplasty if you want to alter or repair the effects of your initial rhinoplasty procedure. The revision surgery is mostly done to restore or change the shape of your nose if you are dissatisfied with the results of a previous surgery. It can also restore the functionality of your nose if your breathing has been affected. You should be looking for a permanent repair and have realistic expectations before going into a revision surgery. Patients should also know that this procedure can be much more complicated than the original rhinoplasty.

Revision Rhinoplasty FAQ

How much does a revision rhinoplasty cost?
The overall price for revision rhinoplasty will vary greatly, depending on how much reconstruction is required. In your consultation, our experienced team will understand your concerns before examining the results of your original rhinoplasty. As soon as a surgical plan is developed, we can more accurately determine your costs. We will also go over payments we accept and give you information on low-interest medical financing to help make your revision rhinoplasty easier to afford.

How long should I wait after my original rhinoplasty to receive revision rhinoplasty?
It's important to give your nose time to heal following a rhinoplasty. In many patients, it can take more than a year for swelling to completely subside so they can see the final shape of their nose. Once your nose is fully recovered from nose surgery, you need to take some time to decide how much you like or dislike the appearance before scheduling a consultation at Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery for revision rhinoplasty.

Will I need cartilage grafting during revision rhinoplasty?
For some revision rhinoplasty procedures, cartilage grafting may be necessary. This is performed by taking bone and/or cartilage from a part of the body, such as the ribs, and using it to rebuild the structure of your nose. Typically, this is only required in serious cases or when the cartilage was jeopardized in the primary rhinoplasty surgery. Cartilage grafting might be needed to help support your nasal structure so you do not have trouble breathing after revision rhinoplasty. Our skilled team will discuss the possibility of cartilage grafting during your initial consultation.
