Nose surgery is a complicated procedure that should only be performed by a highly experienced and skilled plastic surgeon. Occasionally, patients find themselves in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon or a surgeon who does not fully comprehend their desired results. When this happens, revision rhinoplasty may be necessary to improve the results of the primary rhinoplasty. Revision rhinoplasty is much more complicated than an original rhinoplasty. As such, it is essential to choose a highly trained and skilled surgeon like the ones working with Iranian Surgery, so that the secondary procedure goes smoothly and successfully.
Why Is Revision Rhinoplasty Harder Than Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty is more complicated than an original rhinoplasty because the nose has already been surgically altered. There will be scar tissue to deal with, which can make both the procedure and the healing process more complicated. It also means that there will be the need for an artistic eye and creativity to make additional adjustments to the shape, size, or appearance of a nose that has already been cosmetically altered. Entire nasal structures may need reshaping, and the soft tissues of the nose may not respond well to additional surgery and the resulting inflammation.
Another point of complexity is that some cases of revision rhinoplasty require the use of cartilage grafts to support or define the new nasal shape. These are taken from the patient’s own body, most often from the nasal septum, the ear, or near the sternum from the ribs. In other cases, synthetic materials can be used to support the new structure and shape of the nose.
Is Revision Rhinoplasty More Painful?
Revision rhinoplasty is not too painful since we are usually not moving as many things around as in your first rhinoplasty. However, revision rhinoplasty encompasses a very wide range of procedures, from making small changes to the tip to fixing a small bump to completely revising and reconstructing all of the cartilages and the bones. In that last case, that’s when the procedure could be as painful, if not more, than your initial rhinoplasty.
Discomfort can range from no pain to minimal pain all the way to discomfort where you would need some pain medication for about three to four, maybe even five days.
