Dr. Abramson explains what happens when patients are not happy with previous Rhinoplasty procedures from other facilities and come to him seeking Revision Rhinoplasty.

When patients are unhappy with their previous Rhinoplasty, and they come to see me for a potential revision, it is exceedingly important that we go over all of their surgical history and medical history and determine what may have occured, and what I may be able to do to help them in improving their appearance and potentially improving their airway as well. The computer imaging is exceedingly helpful in this situation because we can objectively look at the nose and determine, what are the abnormalities or potential postoperative changes that the patient does not particularly like, and then at that point decide on a plan. Sometimes it’s not wise to even perform a revision Rhinoplasty, however there are not many noses that I have shyed away from if the patient really needs my assistance.

Patients who are seeking Revision Rhinoplasty should understand that a second operation to the nose is much more complex than the initial surgery. For one, scar tissue that has formed since the first surgery makes dissection of the nose more difficult. In addition, cartilage has either been weakened or is harder to utilize. This is why patients should only seek a skilled and experienced surgeon when seeking a Revision Rhinoplasty procedure. Dr. Peter Abramson has been performing revision rhinoplasty for over 15 years and is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology (head and neck surgery). He is often referred by other physicians when patients are unhappy with their Rhinoplasty outcomes.
