Who is the ideal candidate to undergo revision rhinoplasty?

Patients who are not satisfied with the results of a primary rhinoplasty. It is advisable to wait at least a year from the previous intervention, since edema and inflammation can modify the appearance of the nose during this period.

Data on the operation process:

  • At the first consultation, you will have a nasal exam, both external and internal, and will advise you on the best option. It can instruct you to perform an open or closed rhinoplasty, depending on its characteristics.
  • A secondary rhinoplasty, like a primary one, usually lasts between 1 and 2 hours. When finished, plugs are placed in both nostrils and a splint on the back of the nose.
  • Postoperative pain in the nose is moderate. Pain relievers and anti-inflammatories will be prescribed. You may have swollen or bruised eyelids, especially in cases that require osteotomies.
  • Secondary rhinoplasty usually presents greater difficulties than primary rhinoplasty. However, it has the advantage that it is often only necessary to modify some details of the nose for the optimal result, not requiring a complete rhinoplasty. As in any intervention of this nature, the results cannot be considered definitive until a few months have passed.

Are you thinking of undergoing a secondary rhinoplasty in Lahore because your nose has not been as expected?

For the overwhelming majority of people, the second surgery has to do with a specific cosmetic problem, such as a crooked tip or a functional problem such as difficulty breathing. If any of these scenarios sounds familiar to you, you may be a candidate for secondary or revision rhinoplasty:

  • Is your nose still too big for your taste?
  • Has your new nose led your face to imbalance?
  • Was your rhinoplasty too far – or not far enough?
  • Do you just want to refine the tip of the nose?
  • Or are you having some respiratory problems since the first operation?

While statistics vary from country to country, approximately 15 percent of primary rhinoplasty operations in Lahore require revision for one reason or another.

Problems cannot be the fault of the original surgeon. Not all aspects of healing are under the surgeon’s control, and some anatomical variations can pose particular surgical problems.

Before undergoing a secondary rhinoplasty in Lahore With Dr Amin

As an expert in secondary rhinoplasty in Lahore Pakistan , Dr. Amin Rhinoplasty Surgeon always explains that “opting for a secondary or revision rhinoplasty is not a decision that should be taken lightly.” The procedure can be much more complicated than primary rhinoplasty and requires a surgeon with a sophisticated understanding of the nasal structure and surgical technique. As such, it may take longer to perform and the cost of rhinoplasty may be higher. Patients must:

Have realistic expectations

  • Understand that the potential complications of rhinoplasty surgery increase with each additional surgery
  • Consider whether the nasal skeleton is still strong enough to do another surgery
  • Assure the doctor that they have not had nasal surgery in the last year

During your rhinoplasty revision consultation, your plastic surgeon will also examine your skin, cartilage strength, and bone structure, as well as assess the amount of cartilage that is available, because grafting is almost always necessary. Grafts can create a better shape and support the airway – two reasons for secondary rhinoplasty surgery.

Today, some surgeons use imaging programs to simulate rhinoplasty . This type of virtual mockup can help you better manage your expectations. However, not everything you could want can be shown in the simulation. Your surgeon should show you examples of noses that replicate your problems and goals, and demonstrate that he or she knows how to produce the look you want.

Aesthetic problems after primary rhinoplasty

  • Uncorrected hump
  • Very low nasal back
  • Dropped tip
  • Deformity
  • Wide nostrils
  • Under-projected or over-projected nasal tip

The definition of a Revision rhinoplasty Lahore

A secondary rhinoplasty is corrective nasal surgery that serves to alter the shape and / or function of the nose after a previous rhinoplasty.

The revision rhinoplasty generally means that the surgeon who performed the first operation also makes the second. While a secondary rhinoplasty is generally one that is performed by a surgeon who did not do the first surgery.

Secondary cosmetic and reconstructive nasal restructuring is indicated for cosmetic or functional deformities not adequately treated or aggravated from the primary operation. Some also refer to secondary rhinoplasty as “revision rhinoplasty.” This broader terminology can be applied to the required rhinoplasty beyond a secondary operation, such as a third or fourth operation.

Secondary rhinoplasty is more demanding than primary

Rhinoplasty revision can be more difficult than a primary rhinoplasty. The main difference is that in a primary rhinoplasty the nose has not been operated before and the tissues are much easier to work with and the results are more predictable.

In revision rhinoplasty Lahore, the nose has previously undergone surgery and there is much more scar tissue that has to be removed or repositioned in order to affect the type of changes the patient wants with his nose.

Common problems requiring Revision rhinoplasty Lahore

Patients request secondary rhinoplasty to address specific imbalances that persist, re-create, or have become more severe after the first nose job. Often the nose is out of balance or out of harmony with the rest of the facial features due to an unexpected complication of healing, inadequate or incomplete surgical maneuvers.

  • Nasal obstruction of the airways
  • Collapsed cartilage or nasal bones
  • Artificial cosmetic appearance to the nose (“Exaggerated nose”)
  • Collapse of the internal and external nasal valve
  • Worsened asymmetry
  • Excessive or inadequate reduction in back height (bridge / hump height)
  • Incomplete formation (not enough of a cosmetic change)
  • Excessive or inadequate nose projection
  • Excessively narrow nasal tip (“pinched tip”)
  • Excessive internal and / or external scarring (thickened scar tissue)
