Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Revision Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is a big commitment that can have a major impact on a person’s confidence. Ideally, this is a positive impact but sometimes a surgeon’s lack of experience or understanding of their patient’s goals can leave that patient unsatisfied. Luckily, a revision rhinoplasty can correct that experience and repair previous damage done to your nose.
At the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Sadati works carefully to place stitches where they will not be seen so that the end results appear natural. After making a small incision under the nose, the skin will be carefully lifted to reveal the cartilage and bone structure. Dr. Sadati will assess the damage done to supporting tissue from your initial rhinoplasty and rebuild the structure of your nose to give you the healthy, beautiful result you were looking for.
We understand that you may be especially nervous after your revision surgery but try to be patient as your nose heals. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are all normal for the first couple of weeks and can be treated with ice or a cold compress. After 7-10 days, the wait will finally be over, and the bandages can be removed to reveal your beautiful, newly improved nose.
A revision rhinoplasty can be especially helpful for clients left with a pinched tip, upturned nostrils, creases around the nose, scooped nasal appearance, or breathing difficulties after their initial rhinoplasty. If your first rhinoplasty was not done properly and you are having trouble breathing, this is likely because the cartilage in your nose collapsed and is now blocking the airway.
When considering a second rhinoplasty, it is important to know that this will likely be a more complex procedure than your initial surgery. Scar tissue and reduced cartilage in the nose may make it difficult to achieve the exact results you are looking for. However, Dr. Sadati is one of the best revision surgeons in the Orange County area and he will work with you to make sure you do not leave unhappy again.
