Although most patients are satisfied with their nasal cosmetic surgery, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery reports that up to 25% of patients are unhappy with the results of their initial procedure and about half of those eventually choose to undergo a "revision rhinoplasty"; sometimes multiple times. Their dissatisfaction may be over aesthetic issues like size, shape and symmetry and/or functional problems affecting breathing, sleeping and even eating. The problems may be due to an issue not properly addressed, a surgical mistake or complication following the primary nasal surgery.
Specialized Knowledge and Skills
Whatever the cause, the issues involved in revision rhinoplasty cases may be varied and complex which is why it is considered among the most difficult of all cosmetic surgery procedures. Many cases require a revision rhinoplasty specialist with very specialized knowledge, surgical skills and techniques acquired over many years of clinical experience.
