Normal recovery aside, if you’ve had a rhinoplasty and your results don’t look the way you expected, Dr. DeBusk breaks down the common reasons for revision surgery, including irregular contours on the nasal bridge, Pollybeak deformity (downward facing tip), and functional problems.
One of the only reasons a revision rhinoplasty would be done less than 12 months after the initial procedure is saddle nose deformity, in which the bridge sinks into a saddle shape.
Dr. Taylor DeBusk answers the most common worries of patients wondering if they might need a second surgery, including:
- What happens if extra tissue is needed for revision surgery and where is it taken from?
- What could happen if I had a revision rhinoplasty too soon after my initial procedure?
- What functional problems can cause me to need revision rhinoplasty?
- Will the surgeon think I’m crazy for having concerns with my rhinoplasty results?
- What if I can’t go back to the surgeon who did my primary rhinoplasty?
- How common is the need for revision rhinoplasty?
