Many patients seek additional rhinoplasty after their first procedure, and this is called revision rhinoplasty. If a patient is unhappy with the cosmetic outcomes of the initial rhinoplasty or experiencing functional problems, revision rhinoplasty can help achieve their original goals. Secondary rhinoplasty is more complex and requires more planning than a primary rhinoplasty, so it requires a facial plastic surgeon such as Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom who has specific training and experience performing the procedure.
In most cases, revision rhinoplasty can provide the shape, support and/or function that was the intended outcome of the original procedure. This secondary surgery can involve adding cartilage, bone or other tissue to address the shape and structure necessary for the desired aesthetic result and function. If the nose is still too large after the initial rhinoplasty, Mainline Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom can reduce bone and/or cartilage and resculpt the bridge. Keep in mind that it is recommended that you wait at least one year after the initial rhinoplasty before considering revision rhinoplasty, as it can take this long for all swelling from the first procedure to subside.
