Revision Rhinoplasty
New York City

Consult the experts in rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is widely considered one of the most complex surgical procedures. In order to perform a successful rhinoplasty, your facial plastic surgeon must accurately understand the root cause of your concerns and make extremely delicate adjustments to the internal and external structures of your nose. Since the nose is a small and delicate structure, the slightest of missteps can lead to functional problems, breathing problems, nasal bridge collapse, or unwanted cosmetic results.

When considering rhinoplasty, you must consult facial plastic surgeons specializing in rhinoplasties, i.e., those who perform hundreds of rhinoplasties per year. Seeking rhinoplasty from the wrong surgeon dramatically increases the risk of unwanted results or complications. That’s why revision rhinoplasty is one of the most common revision surgeries. If you’re unhappy with the results of your primary rhinoplasty, you should consider NYGPS for a revision rhinoplasty in NYC.

Problems that can be addressed with Revision Rhinoplasty

The following are some of the problems that revision rhinoplasty can address:

  • Structural problems
  • Unsightly Dorsal hump on the nose bridge
  • Crooked or irregular nasal bridge
  • Asymmetry issues
  • Crooked nose
  • Overly large or wide nostrils
  • Nostril collapse
  • Nostril retraction
  • Overly long or wide nose
  • Overly narrow nose
  • Hanging columella
  • Crooked nose bones
  • Crooked nasal tip
  • Deviated septum
  • Pinched nose tip
  • Overly short or rotated nasal tip
  • Drooping nasal tip

Why Undergo Revision Rhinoplasty

You may need to undergo revision rhinoplasty if you’re experiencing functional problems, such as poor breathing or unwanted cosmetic results from your primary rhinoplasty. A botched nose job can lead to numerous functional problems, such as a collapsed nasal passage due to inadequate support, which leads to severe breathing problems. Some patients are also left with a nose that looks worse than it did before.

Revision rhinoplasty is far more complex than a primary rhinoplasty. That’s because the surgeon often needs to rebuild the nose and support using grafting material taken from other parts of the body, such as the septum, ears, or ribs. Our plastic surgeons only use grafts taken from your body to avoid the complications associated with silicone implants, such as infections or the rejection of the implant, during revision rhinoplasty in NYC.

How is a Revision Rhinoplasty Performed?

A primary rhinoplasty can usually be performed as open or closed surgery, depending on your goals. An open rhinoplasty involves making a small incision at the columella to pull back the nose flap and modify the internal structures, such as the cartilage and bone. A closed rhinoplasty involves making small modifications through incisions within the nostrils so there are no visible scars.

Patients generally prefer closed rhinoplasties because they involve less downtime. However, if you’ve undergone a botched nose job, your surgeon may have no option but to perform an open rhinoplasty. Besides addressing your unique cosmetic concerns, the surgeon will also have to undo the damage caused by the primary rhinoplasty, such as fixing the nose bridge, building support for the nose, or more.
