When a person decides to have a nose job performed, they often have a vision of what they will look like after they have recovered from this cosmetic surgery procedure. Unfortunately, some people in Orange County do not get the results that they want from their primary nose surgery. It is important to recognize that you do have options available to you if you are not satisfied with the results from your rhinoplasty. If a year has passed since your operation, you may be a good candidate for the revision rhinoplasty procedure.
What Do I Need to Know About the Revision Rhinoplasty?
Patients must understand that a revision rhinoplasty is only necessary if there are structural issues or cosmetic issues that have resulted from the original procedure. Patients who feel that their nose does not look proportionate or have structural issues that developed after the first procedure was performed should consider having a revision rhinoplasty performed. This procedure will address the mistakes that were made during the original operation, and provide patients with the results that they wanted in the first place.
It is important that the patient is completely recovered from the primary surgery, which is why a revision procedure cannot be considered until 12 months has passed. While most patients are ready to return to their normal daily activities within two weeks of having their primary rhinoplasty, there is some residual swelling that will last for about a year. The true final results of this procedure will not reveal themselves until a year after the first procedure, so a revision cannot be considered until this time.
The revision rhinoplasty is a more complex operation, and the recovery time is longer. The surgery typically takes longer to perform, and patients will experience significant swelling and bruising after it is complete. This is because the facial structure is experiencing additional trauma in a relatively short time span.
It is essential to work with an expert nose surgeon when having a revision rhinoplasty performed. An experienced surgeon who has performed revision procedures in the past will provide patients with the best results.
