There is variety of reasons to seek Revision Rhinoplasty. Some patients are looking for further enhancement and refinement of their nose after their first surgery. Others are not happy with the change in their look, or expected to get a different nose with their first surgery. They might feel that their new nose does not fit the rest of their face or changes their look drastically.
There are times when the initial surgery distorted some of the nasal structures, as well as having adversely affected nasal function. For example, the nasal bridge collapsed ( Saddle Nose Deformity) or the nostrils became over-pinched (“Pinched Nose Deformity”), the nose became crooked, or even the nose became obstructed. Some of these events were caused by the initial surgical technique, while others arose out of the inherent characteristics of the nasal cartilage and soft tissue. For instance, it is known fact that nasal cartilage can warp by itself, thus making the nose crooked.
Revision Rhinoplasty usually involves a number of highly specialized techniques, and possibility reconstruction with multiple grafts, harvested from the septum, ear cartilage, or even the rib cage.
The decision to undergo Revision Rhinoplasty should be taken very carefully, and after extensive discussion of expectations, existing nasal anatomy, limitations, and treatment options.

“A few years ago, I had a Rhinoplasty performed overseas to get rid of a hump that I had on the left side of my nose. When I came home, I saw that my nose was crooked whereas it had been straight before, and one side looked as if it had collapsed. It was totally uneven and disfigured. I cried every night for months and kept hoping it was a bad dream. Now, I am so happy with the results of my Revision Rhinoplasty. Everything that needed to be fixed was fixed, and it turned out great.”
