Giving You the Nose You Know You Deserve

Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS is one of the finest revision rhinoplasty plastic surgeons in the country, bringing an exceptional training background and a keen understanding of facial anatomy and nasal deformities to the table for each procedure. He has successfully performed hundreds of rhinoplasties on men and women of all ages and ethnicities, and he can revise the results of your primary rhinoplasty so that you’re able to enjoy the results you’ve always wanted.

What Is a Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty, also known as corrective nose surgery, is a surgical operation that aims to reverse or modify the primary rhinoplasty results.

Most patients opt for a revision rhinoplasty when a previous procedure failed to give them the results they were hoping for, potentially resulting in cosmetic or functional problems. A poorly-done rhinoplasty can lead to a weakened nasal structure, a pinched nasal tip, ski-slope bridges, or breathing difficulties. In some cases, a revision rhinoplasty may be sought to reverse the primary rhinoplasty results, restoring the patient’s original pre-surgery nose.

Whatever the case may be, Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS will work closely with you to learn about your goals and develop a procedure that brings them into reality.

What Can a Revision Rhinoplasty Treat?

  • Distorted or misshapen nose structure
  • Nose job with excessive cartilage removal
  • Disproportional or asymmetric nose structure
  • Unwanted cosmetic results
  • Breathing problems

Am I A Candidate?

Before each procedure, Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS works closely with his patients to learn about their personal goals, cosmetic issues, medical history, and anything else that might inform the upcoming procedure. He’ll work with you to design a customized treatment plan.

You’re likely a great candidate for revision rhinoplasty if:

  • Your nose has healed completely
  • You want proper facial balance and harmony
  • You’re unhappy with the primary rhinoplasty results
  • You miss your old nose
  • You have breathing or speech problems
  • You want to regain your confidence
  • You’re in generally good physical and mental health
  • You have realistic expectations

What’s the Procedure Like?

Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS will administer either local or general anesthesia before your surgery, which typically begins with an incision made within the nostrils, allowing Dr. Wirth to access the soft tissues.

Following that, he’ll place an incision in the skin between the nostrils, separating the skin from the underlying tissues and giving him access to the bone and cartilage. Next, he’ll contour the bone and cartilage according to your cosmetic goals and treatment plan.

After the procedure, the skin is draped back over the incisions and sutured closed. You’ll need to wear a nasal splint for about a week after your revision rhinoplasty procedure, and  should expect some pain, discomfort, swelling, and bruising for a few days.  This is completely normal, and Dr. Wirth will prescribe some painkillers to help you manage the pain and discomfort. The swelling and bruising will gradually recede in a few days or weeks, and you’ll be able to fully enjoy the results of the treatment.

You will be able to return to work within 10 days, but it may take three to four weeks for all side effects to dissipate. Your nose may be covered during a large portion of your recovery process, making it a little tough to actually notice your results.

Rest assured, though — your new nose will be ready for the world as soon as the swelling has fully subsided, at which point you’ll be looking and feeling your absolute best.

Your Consultation: Designing the Perfect Procedure

During your initial consultation, Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS will learn about you and your cosmetic goals, medical history, and all about why you’re interested in having revision rhinoplasty. He’ll also examine the results of your previous rhinoplasty, to identify potential structural issues that could lead to speech and breathing issues. 

Based on the consultation, he’ll develop an ideal revision rhinoplasty treatment plan, utilizing one of several potential methods of conducting a rhinoplasty. Dr. Wirth will discuss all of your treatment options with you before your procedure, and you’ll work together to design the perfect treatment plan for your needs, goals, and lifestyle.

Why Choose Dr. Wirth?

Rhinoplasty is an incredibly complex surgical procedure, which is exactly why it’s fairly common for a surgeon to be unable to leave a particular patient with the results they had been hoping for. 

Revision rhinoplasty, on the other can, is often even more complex, due to fact that it must reverse or address the primary rhinoplasty’s failures or shortcomings. This is why it’s crucial to find the best plastic surgeon for a revision rhinoplasty, like Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS — his artistic eye and commitment to procedural excellence has resulted in a reputation for incredible results.
