Reasons to Get a Revision Rhinoplasty
As one of the most frequently performed procedures in plastic surgery, rhinoplasty can help you feel more comfortable in your skin. If you spent your entire life feeling self-conscious about the size or shape of your nose, nose reshaping surgery could be life-changing.
In some cases, rhinoplasty does not go as planned. If you have achieved a less than satisfactory result from your rhinoplasty procedure, there is hope in revision rhinoplasty.
What is revision rhinoplasty?
A first nose job is known as primary rhinoplasty. If further surgery is required to achieve the desired results or correct problems, it is called revision rhinoplasty. There are many reasons someone might consider revision rhinoplasty. Here are a few.
Desire to refine your results
Before you had surgery, you likely had a vision of how you wanted your nose to appear following rhinoplasty. Immediately following your surgery, the swelling will mask your final results for a few months. Once the swelling is gone, you may choose to tweak the results so to create the nose envisioned. Most patients who have undergone nose surgery from a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon are pleased with the outcome – but when things go wrong, it is depressing. Not only have you gone through the stress of surgery, but you were left with a nose you don’t like, whether too small, too large, uneven, or other problem.
Rhinoplasty procedures are usually performed for aesthetic reasons, or to correct breathing problems. If your primary rhinoplasty went awry, you might be experiencing difficulty with breathing or now snore while sleeping. The changed physical structure of your nose could be to blame. Feeling that you can’t breathe properly is very unpleasant, and constant snoring affects sleep quality – and annoys your partner! Dr. Wirth’s primary concern is that of your health and happiness following each procedure he performs. As an experienced facial plastic surgeon, he has produced excellent, natural-looking results for hundreds of patients.
We’ve all heard horror stories of nose jobs gone wrong. A bad rhinoplasty can leave you with:
- A nose that is too wide or narrow
- A tip that is too upturned
- An asymmetrical profile
- A collapsed nose structure (Polly beak)
A botched nose job can leave you with psychological trauma and regret, feeling worse than you did before your surgery. Dr. Wirth has a history of being called upon to correct the mistakes others have made.
