When to Consider Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is ideal for anyone who isn’t happy with the results of a prior rhinoplasty surgery. This can happen for a wide variety of reasons, including poor surgical skills and a lack of clear communication between the patient and the surgical team. Complications may also arise during the post-procedural recovery process, requiring you to consider having another rhinoplasty procedure performed. 

It’s estimated that between 10% and 15% of individuals who receive a cosmetic rhinoplasty will request a revision procedure at one point or the other. At Elite Plastic Surgery, our surgical team is home to some of the most experienced nose surgeons in Arizona. By taking a personalized approach to every patient he works with, Dr. Torabi is frequently able to create results that soar above and beyond his patients’ expectations.

Your Recovery Process After Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery in Chandler

After your revision rhinoplasty, you can expect to experience a degree of swelling and bruising. Your surgeon will provide specific aftercare instructions that will help your recovery process be as smooth as possible. During the surgery, a heat-sensitive splint will be applied in order to support the delicate nasal structures, which will be kept in place for at least five days. You’ll also be required to rest for two to three days after the procedure.

Most individuals are able to return to work a week after revision rhinoplasty surgery in Chandler. Your surgeon will let you know when it is okay to resume certain activities like showering and will let you know when you can return to your normal lifestyle and exercise routine. Although results tend to be evident immediately after the procedure, your nasal shape and profile may continue to refine over the next 12 to 18 months.

FAQ Revision Rhinoplasty

How painful is revision rhinoplasty?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort after a revision nose reshaping procedure. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medications as a precautionary measure and make sure that you are able to rest and recover as comfortably as possible. It’s not uncommon to experience sinus pressure or nasal congestion during recovery, which can be alleviated with non-narcotic medications.

Who is the right candidate for a revision nose job?

You may be a good candidate for this procedure if your nose is fully healed after the original procedure and are dissatisfied with the results of the first surgery. During your initial consultation at Elite Plastic Surgery in Chandler, your surgeon will conduct an evaluation and work with you to develop a revisionary treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.

How complicated is revision rhinoplasty?

Depending on the patient and the issues that need to be addressed, revision rhinoplasty may only consist of a simple shave or can involve a more complex reconstruction procedure. Since it’s important to address all of your personal concerns while also achieving a natural-looking, functional, and more attractive nose, we recommend taking care to work with an extensively trained and highly experienced surgeon like Dr. Torabi.

How long does it take to perform the surgery?

In most cases, revision rhinoplasty takes about two to three hours to complete. Some cases, however, can be very complicated and require additional time to complete. You’ll be given a very clear idea of what you can expect on the day of your surgery during your informative initial consultation.

How is recovery after revision rhinoplasty?

While most patients are able to get back to work after about a week following revision rhinoplasty, it often takes up to 18 months for a complete recovery. In situations where Dr. Torabi has harvested cartilage from other parts of the body, there will be additional discomfort as these areas heal. Some swelling is likely, but your surgeon will be sure to provide you with instructions on how to address this and maintain optimal comfort throughout the recovery process.
