Unfortunately, due to the complexity of nasal surgery, Dr. Leong sometimes sees patients who are not satisfied with the results of a rhinoplasty performed by another surgeon. He understands that deciding to move forward with any surgical procedure can be a scary and difficult process, so he feels sympathetic when a patient goes through the process and is not happy with the end result.
Fortunately, Dr. Leong has years of experience performing rhinoplasty revisions in order to correct previous surgeries that may have been “too aggressive” or “not aggressive enough” – leaving the patient feeling as though no improvements have been made. For this reason, it is crucial to have clear and effective communication with your surgeon so that he/she thoroughly understands what you are hoping to achieve and can provide you with realistic expectations and goals.
The following will give you some additional information on revision rhinoplasty surgery. If you would like to schedule a consultation to talk about this procedure and start your journey to some of the best results in revision rhinoplasty Pittsburgh has to offer, please contact Sistine Facial Plastic Surgery.
How does revision rhinoplasty work?
Revision Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed to effectively restore nasal form and repair breathing mechanisms or improve the cosmetic appearance of the nose. It is important to note that minor improvement may require a more extensive procedure than expected. Revision rhinoplasty surgery is more complex, due to the formation of scar tissue from the previous nasal surgery. Therefore, revision surgery may take longer than your primary rhinoplasty procedure.
Regarding the surgical approach, an open rhinoplasty is frequently the best option (requires more incisions) but every nose is different, and the approach will be determined on a case by case basis. The closed approach may efficiently and beautifully accomplish a good result. Dr. Leong recommends waiting at least one year after your initial rhinoplasty surgery to ensure that swelling has resolved and the healing process is complete.
It is critical to find a surgeon who focuses specifically on the face to ensure that you are receiving care from a doctor who has extensive experience with the anatomy and structure of the nose. Few surgeons are highly specialized and qualified to perform revision rhinoplasty. After the disappointment after the first surgery, it is important to find a surgeon with whom you have clear communication and can easily and effectively discuss your goals with.
