Choose The Spiegel Center Team For The Nose You Deserve

The double board-certified plastic surgeons of The Spiegel Center in Newton, Massachusetts, have performed countless revision rhinoplasties over more than 20 years. They are particularly well-known for helping patients who have had multiple rhinoplasties finally achieve their desired appearance.

What Is A Revision Rhinoplasty?

The decision to undergo rhinoplasty is a personal one that can take years to make. It can be frustrating when the results don’t align with your aesthetic goals, or if you experience functional or other complications. Revision rhinoplasties are complex surgeries that correct problems.  Sometimes cartilage grafts are needed. This cartilage can come from the nasal septum when available, from behind one or both ears, or from a rib.  

If rib cartilage is recommended, this can be obtained through a small incision on the chest (in the groove under the breast for women), or, sterilized frozen cadaver cartilage can be used.  Your surgeon will let you know if a cartilage graft is recommended for you, and what type.  Of course, you’ll be able to discuss the choice with your doctor to make sure it fits with your desires.

Revision rhinoplasty can be difficult to perform and demands the skill of a plastic surgeon who specializes in facial procedures and has a proven success record with revisional procedures. The Spiegel Center surgeons have advanced training in this area, and The Spiegel Center is now one of the top choices for revision rhinoplasty referrals worldwide.

Revision RhinoplastyWhat Can the Procedure Fix?

Revision rhinoplasty can be performed to correct a wide variety of problems from a primary rhinoplasty. Common issues include:

  • Crooked or asymmetrical results
  • Unsightly scarring
  • Depressions
  • Bumps along the bridge
  • Drooping nose tip
  • Under-correction
  • Overcorrection

What To Expect During The Consultation

During your dedicated consultation, your TSC surgeon will ask you about the specific issues you have with the appearance and function of your nose, as well as your experience with your initial rhinoplasty. Your surgeon will then conduct a careful physical examination of your nose to assess problem areas. With this information, they will formulate a personalized surgical plan designed to give you optimal results that you can feel proud of.

Recovering From Revision Rhinoplasty

The swelling and bruising that follow a revision rhinoplasty may be more extensive than primary rhinoplasty, but not always. Pain should be minimal and can be managed easily with over-the-counter medication, though prescription pain medications are available if indicated. 

Bruising should dissipate in around two weeks. Swelling will last for several months, although in most cases, patients are able to return to work after around one week and feel good about their appearance in only 10 days.

The sutures used are typically dissolvable, but follow-up visits are scheduled with your surgeon to make sure the nose is healing properly. The final outcome of a revision rhinoplasty takes 12 or more months, but improvements will be visible soon after the procedure.
