When Do You Need a Revision Rhinoplasty?

When a patient decides to undergo rhinoplasty surgery, they desire a natural-looking, beautiful result. However, sometimes, a patient will receive a rhinoplasty from a non-specialty surgeon and be unhappy with the outcome. So, what is a patient to do when they are left with a nose they didn’t want?

A revision rhinoplasty can often help to achieve the results desired the first time around. At FacesFirst, our surgeons are highly skilled in rhinoplasty surgery, and can deal with even the most difficult rhinoplasty challenges with remarkable success!

What a Revision Rhinoplasty Can Do for You

Patients choose revision rhinoplasty to correct any undesired result or correction of “mistakes” that have occurred due to previous rhinoplasty surgery. This surgery is considered one of the most difficult among cosmetic surgeries since damaged cartilage will need to be rebuilt from scratch to create a new nasal structure.

To do this, cartilage may be harvested from other areas of the body, like the ear, rib, or septum. At our practice, we see many nasal surgeries from other practices that seem to be executed poorly and missing the chance to create beautiful, natural-looking restorations. Thankfully, we have the expertise to tackle this difficult procedure. Dr. Cote is one of the best revision nose job doctors in Denver.

This procedure may take longer than a typical rhinoplasty and, therefore, has a longer recovery time. Full recovery time may last from six months to two years, depending on the amount of correction that had to be repaired.

Although this procedure is more complex, it can help to repair any damage done to the nose, medically or aesthetically, creating beautiful results. With revision rhinoplasty, you can feel confident in your appearance!

If you are unhappy with the results from a previous rhinoplasty, a revision rhinoplasty may be able to help. A consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons can help to determine if this procedure is right for you.
