Even rhinoplasties performed in the best of hands can result in external deformities or breathing difficulties post-procedure. This is unfortunately due to the complicated anatomy of the nose and the ‘vagaries of healing’.
It is important to wait at least 1 year before any additional surgery is performed to a nose that has had a previous Rhinoplasty procedure. This is to allow your nose to fully recover and in many cases the results after 1 year compared to the results are 6 months can be quite different once the swelling has gone and the bone tissues have softened.
If you are not returning your original surgeon to have a revisional rhinoplasty then your new surgeon may ask that you contact them to get details about your previous procedure. Knowing the details of what was performed previously will help your new surgeon to be able to make a more informed decision about how to carry out your revisional surgery.
Revisional rhinoplasty can be a very complex procedure so it is important to choose a surgeon who has experience in performing these types of procedures to ensure you achieve the best results.
