Reasons Patients Seek a Revision Rhinoplasty in NJ
Rhinoplasty is regarded as one of the more difficult cosmetic surgery procedures to achieve consistent results. As such, rhinoplasty requires a high level of skill, knowledge and experience for successful results. The difference between an optimal or undesirable outcome can often be measured in mere millimeters.
The surgeon must also have a complete understanding of the patient’s desires and anatomical considerations so as to translate those wishes into the right transformation. Unfortunately, there are times when rhinoplasty does not go the way patients had hoped. As a result, some patients may seek out additional surgery to revise or repair their original nose job.
Often times when patients seek a revision rhinoplasty it is because the results from their original surgery were too drastic or inadequate. Common complaints include:
- A residual dorsal hump or over-resected dorsum.
- Too little or too much tip definition.
- The bridge of the nose appears too narrow or too wide.
- Collapsed nostrils or a collapsed bridge in the nose, also known as a saddle deformity.
- Poor tip projection/rotation.
Sometimes there is no specific reason other than an overall dissatisfaction with the final result. Other patients may be satisfied with the aesthetics of their nose, only to experience breathing difficulty, an ongoing nasal drip or whistling noises when they breathe. Patients who undergo a Septoplasty for a deviated septum may find that an additional surgery is required to fully alleviate the condition.
