What is the Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure or Corrective Rhinoplasty procedure?

Revision rhinoplasty relates to all secondary procedures that are intended to improve functional or cosmetic complications that can occur following a previous rhinoplasty. An average of 25% of primary rhinoplasty require a revision. Several scenarios could create a need for revision rhinoplasty in Miami.

  • Functional problems like a deviated septum could require septoplasty or other established techniques to correct breathing problems in patients.
  • Under correction following a primary rhinoplasty may leave a hump or other cosmetic issues that require further surgical correction.
  • Overcorrection following a primary rhinoplasty may require augmentation through cartilage grafts to achieve the desired profile.
  • Deformity of a bone or soft tissue

Primary rhinoplasty is a very complicated procedure that requires extreme surgical precision. Revision rhinoplasty is even more critical, and remedying functional problems, overcorrection, and under correction – requires exacting techniques performed by a highly qualified and experienced surgeon.

Dr. Salomon has displayed a high level of competence throughout his career, with a high success rate. He will provide a complimentary consultation with your needs in mind and treats each patient individually with the utmost patience, compassion and care. After careful examination, Dr. Salomon will discuss your options for revision rhinoplasty during your first consultation.

What Should You expect During Revision Rhinoplasty in Miami?

Most procedures can be completed in one to three hours and are usually performed under general anesthesia.  Dr. Salomon can perform endonasal (closed) or open surgeries, depending on the level of correction that is required. Closed surgeries utilize incisions created internally, while open surgeries use incisions around the underside of the nose.

Specific techniques depend entirely on the revision rhinoplasty that is needed. Dr. Salomon will begin by making the necessary incisions to separate nose skin from cartilage and bone that supports the structure. Overcorrection is typically corrected using cartilage grafts. Cartilage can be donated from the ear or rib, or from the septum if available. The desired shape and profile of your nose is achieved by repositioning bone and cartilage. Incisions are sutured, and intranasal dressings are used immediately following surgery. A flexible splint provides both protection and optimal conditions for healing.

Each surgery is unique. Your own experience may differ slightly from other patients. Dr. Salomon will explain, in detail, the specifics of your surgery, answering any questions and addressing concerns that you may have prior to your revision rhinoplasty procedure.

*Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

What is the Recovery Process for Revision Rhinoplasty?

Bruising, swelling, and some bleeding are common following revision rhinoplasty. Discomfort can be experienced by most patients but can be addressed with prescribed medication. Stitches and the splint can typically be removed at the end of the first week. Strenuous activity should be avoided for at least three weeks and contact with the nose should be avoided for up to six weeks. Light activity like office work can be resumed in the first week.

Some swelling could last for up to a year after rhinoplasty, before full healing is achieved. Major swelling and bruising will subside within the first few weeks after surgery. Dr. Salomon will offer a complete overview of the recovery process based on your unique revision rhinoplasty in Miami Florida.
