Rhinoplasty is a complex surgical procedure that could result in complications. Patients that are unsatisfied with the appearance of their nose or have functional difficulties following surgery may eventually seek revision rhinoplasty. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides revision rhinoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Why Seek Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty is most common for patients that have unsatisfactory results with the appearance of their nose following surgery. This procedure may also be necessary if complications such as breathing issues arise. While these issues may occur for a number or reasons, you can reduce your chances of complications by choosing a board certified plastic surgeon that is qualified to perform your procedure.
When Should I Seek Revision Rhinoplasty?
Patients must wait until they have made a full recovery from their initial rhinoplasty, typically six months to a year. Swelling from the initial rhinoplasty can make it difficult to see results, and can cause patients to believe they are unsatisfied. Sometimes swelling in the tip of the nose may take longer to subside versus swelling in the bridge of the nose, making results look off to the patient. Once swelling has fully subsided in the 6 month – 1 year timeline, it is a good time to begin considering revision surgery if you are still unsatisfied. If you are experiencing functional issues, you should discuss this with your surgeon right away. Be sure to discuss any concerns with your surgeon in your follow-up appointments.
Your Surgeon Matters
Choosing a qualified, board certified plastic surgeon makes a difference in your results. Plastic surgeons must undergo rigorous training and meet high standards to be awarded board certification, which increases your likelihood of patient satisfaction. Plastic surgeons also undergo more training for procedures than cosmetic surgeons, so keep this in mind when choosing your provider. To ensure best results for your rhinoplasty, be sure to do your research and find a board certified plastic surgeon.
