The team at Weber Facial Plastic Surgery proudly offers our patients the best in Revision Rhinoplasty (also known as secondary rhinoplasty) that Denver, Colorado has to offer. A board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Weber has years of expertise in various areas of cosmetic surgery, including rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty.
Where are revision rhinoplasty procedures performed?
The rhinoplasty revision procedure may be performed in an office surgical suite, or in an outpatient surgical center. Anesthesia may be local with oral sedation, or general anesthesia may be required. In general, minor refinements can be performed in an office procedure suite with oral sedation medication while more complete revisions are performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgery center.
Why does revision rhinoplasty recovery take so long?
The revision procedure generally requires more healing time than the initial surgery because it is often more complex to overcome issues caused by the prior procedure. In addition, the nose already contains existing scar tissue, which can make healing proceed more slowly.
Can revision rhinoplasty correct nasal deformities?
Dr. Weber will address any structural deformity, clear away previous scar tissue and reshape the nose as close as possible to what you had originally planned, while avoiding any potential complications.
Can the doctor use the original incision sites?
Whenever possible, Dr. Weber will follow the original incision patterns to reduce the chances of additional scarring, unless there is a reason he needs to approach it differently.
Is there a way I can see what my nose is likely to look life after revision rhinoplasty?
Yes. Dr. Weber uses a sophisticated imaging system, which can give you a preview of what to expect. It is important to note that his is not a guarantee of results but a communication tool that allows you and Dr. Weber to agree on the goal result for your procedure.
What are the risks of revision rhinoplasty treatment?
While rhinoplasty revision procedures are overall very safe, there is always some risk associated with surgery. Rhinoplasty revision risks may include:
- Complications from anesthesia
- Infections at the site or within the sinus areas
- Skin or tissue loss
- Contour or skin irregularities
- Difficulty healing and or unwanted scarring
- Dissatisfaction with the results
- Difficulty breathing or nasal drainage and others
