Secondary "Nose Job"

Revision rhinoplasty is also known as ‘secondary’ or ‘tertiary’ rhinoplasty, depending on how many times the procedure had been performed on you, and literally means amendment nose reshaping surgery. Although a "Nose Job" is usually effective first time and most people are satisfied with the results, there are sometimes exceptions. You may need to undergo revision rhinoplasty if you wish to make corrections to a previous cosmetic procedure or readdress aspects of your nose which weren’t covered or were unsuccessful in your first rhinoplasty. Unfortunately, this procedure can be necessary for between 5 to 12% who have undergone nose reshaping surgery previously, an equal selection of requiring both minor and major modifications and changes.

Reasons for Having Revision Rhinoplasty

Needing revised nose reshaping surgery can be for a number of different reasons, some of which may be unforeseen. It is also important to remember than needing this surgery isn’t necessarily a reflection of your original surgeon’s skill, there are a variety of factors which can lead to an eventually undesirable end result with rhinoplasty. There might have been abnormalities in the healing process, the likelihood of which is increased if aftercare instructions are not followed properly. The natural aging process can also eventually change the face which might affect the look of your nose. Also, whilst they are rare, complications may have arisen which could require revision rhinoplasty to correct the damage.

Make sure you discuss with your surgeon factors of your nose with both of you feel may need addressing and they will be able to advise you on the course of action which best suits your condition. In particular, if you have had revision nose reshaping surgery before then you need to consider very carefully the possible benefits and risks before opting for the procedure again.
