A revision rhinoplasty is generally performed to improve a poor cosmetic or functional result of a previous rhinoplasty procedure. Making the choice to have a rhinoplasty is an important decision, when the best results aren’t achieved, the results for the patient can be incredibly disappointing.
In some cases a simple cosmetic “touch up” is all that’s needed. This may involve some minor reshaping to smooth a tiny bump on the bridge of the nose, correct a visible edge on the tip or improve minor asymmetry. This type of revision rhinoplasty is often less involved than the original procedure and requires very little downtime.
In the event that the original rhinoplasty yielded poor functional results, a reconstructive procedure may be necessary to restore nasal breathing. These functional reconstructions can often be covered by insurance.
