What Is A Revision Rhinoplasty or Secondary Rhinoplasty

A revision rhinoplasty, also referred to as a secondary rhinoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure that attempts to address problems, complications or trauma following a previous rhinoplasty surgery. The secondary rhinoplasty may be performed to address cosmetic concerns that were not properly met on the first procedure, such as healing problems, and or cosmetic issues which became apparent several months after the swelling has gone down. The revision rhinoplasty is a very delicate, complex and challenging procedure to perform successfully with only 1-2 millimeters between failure and success. That is why it is imperative to select a surgeon who is not only an experienced and qualified rhinoplasty surgeon, but also a revision rhinoplasty specialist who is familiar with the very delicate and complicated procedure of repairing the nose following a previous (primary) rhinoplasty procedure. Dr. Jonathan Ross Berman is a board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience and excellence in plastic surgery procedures especially rhinoplasty procedures. At his office in Boca Raton, FL, revision rhinoplasty procedures are routinely performed with precision and excellence.

Patients often feel like they stand out in a crowd since it is very hard to hide an incongruous nose. It is obvious then every patient has to be individually evaluated and a comprehensive plan will be different for each and every patient. There is no one “cookie cutter” alternative. It is also unfortunate that a patient who has already spent money on a previous procedure is experiencing problems or complications. However, by offering revision rhinoplasty in Boca Raton FL, we help patients recover and experience improvement from functional or cosmetic concerns that have arisen from a previous procedure. For example: some patients actually have a beautiful nose but are unable to breathe out of it; while others have a distorted cosmetic appearance and no problem breathing; while a third possibility is the unfortunate patient that complains of cosmetic discrepancies and breathing problems.

Boca Raton Revision Rhinoplasty Procedures

A primary rhinoplasty attempts to create an aesthetically pleasing look that creates harmony between form and function and the face. Parts of cartilaginous septum, and other supporting cartilages are trimmed, or altered as is often the nasal pyramid to create the cosmetically blended rhinoplasty. The skin envelope is expected to redrape ever so beautifully over the structural changes created in the primary rhinoplasty.

Because in a previous rhinoplasty most commonly a patient’s septum has either been partially or completely removed during the primary rhinoplasty, these structural changes often complicate the secondary or revision rhinoplasty procedure. To make matters worse the cartilage and bone that have been left have already been deformed and scarred. The septum is the prime material that is needed to create a successful revision nasal surgery. Also, the skin that is left after a primary rhinoplasty has become either too thick or too thin. This scarred tissue is challenging to treat. There is always some form of scar contracture – this can compromise the nasal airway and certainly deform or twist remaining nasal cartilage. This is the reason why this secondary rhinoplasty is a very complicated and challenging procedure, especially when the patient often struggles to breathe through their nose. The nasal passages and or nasal valves themselves have been compromised in order to give a more beautiful nose. The old rule says, “form must follow function.” If this rule is violated, it results in problems and complications that are seen in secondary rhinoplasties.

In Boca Raton, revision rhinoplasty specialist Dr. Berman uses different solutions to remedy these problems. Often, an open structure rhinoplasty is performed to do this. Whether a closed or open rhinoplasty is performed, a post-operative splint is fashioned to help keep the nose’s new shape, minimize post-operative swelling, and stabilize the nasal bones that are often repositioned. A fiberglass splint is worn post-operatively for at least 7-10 days.
