A poorly performed rhinoplasty or poor healing can result in deformities or impaired nasal function. The revision or secondary rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that corrects deformities caused by a previous operation on the nose. Some patients who have undergone a previous rhinoplasty, or nose job, may be unhappy with the results, either for functional or cosmetic reasons.
Revision rhinoplasty is more complex and nuanced than primary rhinoplasty because there may be less cartilage to work with and there may be scarring within the nose. It is important to allow sufficient time after the first surgery to let the nose heal and the shape mature. Dr. Caceres advises patients to wait at least one year after their first surgery before considering major revision. Revision rhinoplasty surgery is aimed at achieving the most natural appearance with the best possible function. In order to make the desired changes, additional cartilage may be taken from the ear or even the ribs to reconstruct the nose. Dr. Caceres is an expert in primary and revision rhinoplasty and his comprehensive and meticulous surgical techniques can help you achieve the best possible results.
