At the Plastic Surgery Institute, Drs. Andrew Ordon and Dr. Ritu Chopra combine their decades of experience to help their patients make the best and most informed decisions regarding revision rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills.
Rhinoplasty commonly referred to as a "nose job," is among the most common plastic surgery procedures. Finding a plastic surgeon with the skill to do it well is always a challenge. More challenging is finding a plastic surgeon who has the expertise to perform revision rhinoplasty - rhinoplasty to make corrections to a previously completed surgery.
Revision Rhinoplasty is a second nose surgery performed to improve or correct results from prior rhinoplasty surgery. Generally, the first nose surgery is referred to as primary Rhinoplasty. While the majority of the time, patients are happy with their primary rhinoplasties, sometimes, they will seek a revision surgery for a variety of reasons.
Revision rhinoplasty is far more intricate and complicated than a primary rhinoplasty. Every rhinoplasty comes with an unavoidable formation of scar tissue. While surgeons account for this when they perform a patient's first Rhinoplasty, every patient's body responds differently. There is no way of knowing exactly how densely or how extensively scar tissue will be in the nose of a given patient. Medical literature has indicated that the revision rate for Rhinoplasty or cosmetic nose surgery is between 10 and 15 percent. Hence, Rhinoplasty has a success rate of around 85 to 90 percent, but if the operation is done by board-certified plastic surgeons trained in this technique, this may be higher.
Maybe the nose is still larger than desired or continues to look unnatural. There may be structural problems not adequately addressed by the first procedure. There may be residual breathing difficulties. Whatever your reason may be for considering Revisional Rhinoplasty, while not typical, it is not unheard of.
It is estimated that as many as 12 percent of patients who undergo Rhinoplasty will return to a physician seeking revision rhinoplasty. If you are among those considering it, there are significant issues to consider. It is also essential to understand that every rhinoplasty surgery leads to additional scar tissue formation. This additional scarring means that further procedures are less likely to provide the dramatic results otherwise expected. It is critical to have the right expectations when considering revisional Rhinoplasty.
Dealing with scar tissue formation and knowing how to provide the expected results in noses already altered by a previous surgery are elements of the unique challenge that comes with revision rhinoplasty.
Not every rhinoplasty surgeon has the experience and skill to offer revision rhinoplasty, and not every plastic surgeon is willing to go through the necessary education. It's imperative to find a top Beverly Hills Revision Rhinoplasty surgeon with the training, experience, and skill to perform this surgery to provide you with the desired results.
At times surgeons may focus too intensely on one aspect of the surgery only to have another aspect suffer the consequences.
Surgeons often favor the physical results over the functional results, only to have the nose look great but for the function to be impeded. One of the defining characteristics of quality specialists in revision rhinoplasty Beverly Hills plastic surgeons Dr. Ordon and Dr. Chopra, for example, is the ability to compensate for unexpected variables safely and efficiently while in the environment of surgery.

Revision rhinoplasty requires more time in addition to increased complexity. It can take much longer than the initial procedure to do the procedure itself. The healing time is also usually longer because it will take more time for tissues that have already been changed and developed scar tissue to heal again.
A number of problems such as pinched nostrils, scar contracture, and progressive nasal obstruction, as well as internal and external trauma suffered during over aggressive surgery, are commonly addressed through revision rhinoplasty and patients who experience issues not listed here should not hesitate to contact us doctors at The Plastic Surgery Institute.
The best plastic surgeons are committed to ensuring that you understand all complications clearly, like revision rhinoplasty specialists and reconstructive surgeons. If your surgeon thinks for any reason that your risks outweigh any advantage that revision rhinoplasty will offer, he or she may clarify that you are not a good candidate for the procedure.
For example, your physician can feel that you need more time to recover from your previous operation. This is often just a temporary issue. In certain cases, a second or third rhinoplasty can be attempted too early in the acute healing process of the nasal structure. In the majority of instances, changes can be made provided the right timing. Many revision procedures involve minor adjustments, which your doctor can discuss with you.
You may wonder how often you can undergo revision Rhinoplasty. Although there is no fixed number of how many modifications can be done safely, a new set of challenges comes with every procedure. Revision surgery is more complicated than the first surgery, and subsequent operations may have a greater rate of complications than the first unless done by a revision rhinoplasty specialist, and if less than 100 percent improvement is not approved by a patient.
