Sometimes, even the best-laid plans don’t turn out as expected. That can be true when it comes to rhinoplasty. Although it can be frustrating to have your surgery not go as planned, the good news is that revision rhinoplasty can help correct some of the problems associated with your first surgery. There are also cases when the first surgery turns out well, but changes to the nose occur over time that negatively affect the appearance.
If your nose isn’t what you wanted it to be or isn’t what you hoped for, it’s time to schedule a revision rhinoplasty consultation. Here are a few of the most popular reasons for a revision rhinoplasty consultation.
You’re Not Happy with Your Rhinoplasty Results
You might have gone into surgery expecting your nose to look a certain way when all was said and done. But, in the end, it just didn’t turn out the way you hoped. If it’s been at least six months to a year after your first rhinoplasty and the results are still not what you expected, it can be time to schedule a revision rhinoplasty consultation.
There are a number of reasons why you might be unhappy with the results of your first surgery. You might have expected your nose to end up smaller or you might have wanted the tip to be slightly more upturned or more refined. The first nose job might not have fully eliminated a bump or hump on your nose.
During a revision rhinoplasty consultation, your surgeon will review your surgical expectations with you. He or she will let you know if they are realistic or if they are something that you can reasonably expect to achieve with a secondary surgery.
You’re Having Problems with Form or Function
Although it’s often considered a purely cosmetic surgery, rhinoplasty can help improve the function of the nose. Depending on the structure of your nose and the problems you’ve been having, rhinoplasty can help you breathe more easily.
But there are also cases when people who had no functional problems with their nose before surgery end up developing functional problems afterwards. The reverse is also true. You might have had your first surgery mainly to correct a problem with your nose’s function. At the end of it, you have ended up with a nose that you think no longer flatters your face.
If your first surgery changed your nose’s appearance or functioning for the worse, you might benefit from a revision.
Your Nose Was Injured After Your Rhinoplasty
In some instances, a person has rhinoplasty and is absolutely delighted with their results. Usually, that’s the end of the story and that person doesn’t need to even think about a revision.
But, a situation can occur that causes damage to the nose. A person can be injured in a car accident, get hit in the nose while playing sports, or trip and fall on the nose. An injury after the first surgery can bend the nose out of shape or make a previously straight nose to become crooked. In those cases, a revision rhinoplasty can correct the nose and restore it to the way it looked after the first surgery.
