Secondary Rhinoplasty Q & A

What is a secondary rhinoplasty procedure? 

Secondary rhinoplasty is sometimes known as revision rhinoplasty. A form of cosmetic nasal surgery, these procedures are usually performed when patients are dissatisfied with the results of their original rhinoplasty procedure.

Secondary rhinoplasty can sometimes be a complex surgery, since these procedures may involve undoing the previous surgeon's work. Patients who are unhappy with their first surgery often seek out a more skilled plastic surgeon for their second procedure.

Who might benefit from this type of procedure?

While many patients are satisfied with the results of their original rhinoplasty, some may opt for another procedure. In some cases, the patient may be unhappy with the cosmetic results of their first procedure. In other instances, nasal function may have been damaged by the surgery.

If your original procedure was not a success, you might struggle with any of the following:

  • Nasal obstruction
  • Scar tissue in or around the nose
  • Reduced airflow in the nose
  • Collapse of nasal cartilage
  • Artificial or unnatural appearance

Some patients simply feel that the original procedure didn't do enough to reshape or resize their noses. These patients choose to have another surgery to achieve more dramatic results. 

What results can I expect from a secondary rhinoplasty? 

Individual results depend on what issues you’re experiencing. If you aren’t happy with the way your nose looks, Dr. Craig Foster can help reshape your nose to improve its appearance. If your previous surgery caused issues with your nasal function, you might require more intensive surgery.

Fortunately, Dr. Foster is a world-renowned plastic surgeon with extensive experience in both reconstructive surgery and otolaryngology, which is ear, nose, and throat medicine (ENT). If you had a disappointing experience with a previous surgeon, Dr. Foster can help.

During a consultation with Dr. Foster, he explains what challenges might result from your original procedure and whether a second surgery can correct these problems. As a board-certified ENT doctor, Dr. Foster routinely helps patients struggling with issues related to their sinus health and nasal function.
