What Is Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty or secondary rhinoplasty is the performance of another nose surgery in order to correct or improve results from an initial nose job.

While no one ever anticipates or plans on multiple nose surgeries, if you are truly unhappy with your result, it is important to know that you can get a better outcome and that you have options.

There are many reasons for seeking revision rhinoplasty. Plastic surgeon Dr. Payman Simoni sees a full spectrum of patients requiring minor to major revisions. In some cases, patients only have a small amount of residual bone in the nasal bridge or a slight defect in the tip. In these cases, the revision surgery can be done as soon as the majority of healing is done.

In other cases, there may be a need for complete reconstruction including repairing functional issues that may have developed from the primary rhinoplasty or from trauma incurred after surgery. Patients who have had an accident or sports injury to the unhealed nasal structure often fall into this category.

Unfortunately, most revision surgery performed by Dr. Simoni falls into the category of incorrectly executed primary rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is a very complex surgery requiring a higher level of skill and artistic judgment than any other cosmetic surgical procedure. He understands the disappointment felt by patients who come to him with unsatisfactory results and knows there may be trust issues regarding the surgical outcome. As a double board-certified nasal surgeon, he is uniquely qualified to handle these difficult surgeries and consistently provides revision rhinoplasty.
