What is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or plastic surgical procedures designed to modify the appearance and structure of the nose and the region around it, are complex surgeries, and it is an unfortunate fact that many people are unhappy with the results of their rhinoplasty procedures. Whether due to issues caused by an inexperienced surgeon or healing that displaces nasal implants or otherwise detrimentally modifies the intended final appearance, many patients believe that the results are permanent; however, they are not. Dr. Peter Abramson is a double board certified surgeon who can repair a rhinoplasty procedure that has gone awry.

The surgery is called revision rhinoplasty. An experienced and skilled surgeon like Dr. Abramson can perform a revision rhinoplasty to literally revise a prior procedure, correcting the work of an inexperienced surgeon and giving results that better match the patient’s desired outcome.

What is the process?

Because work has already been performed even before Dr. Abramson has the opportunity to speak with the patient, he and his team must, therefore, take an extensive look at the current situation to fully advise the patient in advance about the nature of any surgical procedures. A consultation is held to discuss and develop the precise goals for the surgery and identify the areas of the prior procedure that fell short of the patient’s expectations. It is important to proceed in a slow and careful fashion; after all, a rhinoplasty operation may take up to eighteen months to fully heal and “settle” into a final configuration. Dr. Abramson and his team exercise caution to ensure that a patient is truly unhappy with a previous procedure’s outcome before taking any action to correct it.
