Revision Rhinoplasty

For What Purposes Is Revision Rhinoplasty Performed?

Revision rhinoplasty is applied for patients who are not satisfied with the result or who want to correct some problems related to previous surgeries, despite the previous rhinoplasty surgery or surgeries. Revision rhinoplasty can be performed for functional and aesthetic purposes such as eliminating breathing problems, correcting asymmetry or irregularities in the shape of the nose. In addition, revision rhinoplasty may also be required to correct scar tissue or healing problems resulting from the first surgery. Revision rhinoplasty surgeries are more complex and much more difficult than the first, primary rhinoplasty. Therefore, it should be carefully planned by an experienced surgeon.

What should be considered when choosing a revision rhinoplasty doctor? 

Since revision rhinoplasty is an additional procedure required after the first surgery, the choice of doctor is of great importance. Especially, when looking for a revision rhinoplasty doctor in Antalya, special attention should be paid to the surgeon's experience and expertise in this field. In order to correctly analyse the problems encountered after the first surgery and find effective solutions, the doctor should have deep knowledge and experience in revision surgeries. Asking for references and before-and-after photos from the doctor's previous patients can help you find a surgeon who meets your expectations. In addition, the doctor's communication with the patient and his/her approach in the counselling process are also important for the successful and comfortable operation process.

Is Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery Difficult?

Rhinoplasty revision surgery is considered more difficult than the first surgery. Second or recurrent rhinoplasty surgery requires working with tissues that have changed due to previous surgical interventions. Therefore, the operation may become more complicated. Revision surgery may involve additional challenges such as scar tissue, cartilage damage or structural changes caused by the previous surgery. In some patients, it is necessary to use cartilage to repair structural deformities of the nose. Patients with previous surgery may not have enough functional cartilage in the nose. In such patients, it may be necessary to use cartilage mainly from the rib or ear according to the need. For all these reasons, revision rhinoplasty surgeries should be performed by an experienced and specialised surgeon.

How is Revision Nose Surgery Performed?

Revision nose surgery is a procedure performed to improve the results of a previous rhinoplasty surgery. During the surgery, the surgeon first carefully evaluates the structures within the nose and makes the necessary corrections. These corrections are aimed at improving the shape, size or function of the nose. The success of revision surgery depends on the surgeon's experience and the patient's nasal structure after the previous surgery. Revision nose surgeries can take between 30 minutes and 6 hours. The duration of the operation is determined by the difficulty of the revision and the amount of procedures to be performed. Small corrections can be performed under local anaesthesia. However, larger revision surgeries require general anaesthesia.

When Is Revision Rhinoplasty Performed? 

In order to perform revision rhinoplasty, it is recommended that at least 6 months to a year has passed since the first surgery. Because during this time, the nose heals completely and takes its final shape. Revision surgery may sometimes be preferred to solve functional and aesthetic problems such as breathing problems or minor aesthetic concerns. It can also be performed earlier with such limited indications. It is important that the patient and the surgeon make a detailed assessment of the necessity and timing of the surgery.

What should be considered in the healing process of revision rhinoplasty? 

During the recovery process after revision rhinoplasty, it is very important that patients strictly follow the doctor's instructions. For the first few days after surgery, it is recommended to keep the head elevated and avoid excessive physical activity. Gently applying ice to the facial area helps to reduce swelling and bruising. Substances that may adversely affect healing, such as smoking and alcohol, should be avoided. In addition, regular follow-up visits and keeping the surgical site clean and protected accelerate the healing process and reduce the risk of possible complications.
