What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed by a Manhattan facial plastic surgeon that reshapes, resizes and/or restructures the nose. The majority of New York rhinoplasty patients undergo the procedure to improve their appearance and bring their nose into a more pleasing balance with the rest of their facial features. Rhinoplasty may also be performed to improve breathing or repair damage to the nose caused by an accident or illness.
Sometimes rhinoplasty patients are displeased with the results of their facial plastic surgery. Unfortunately, rhinoplasty cannot be undone; but it can be corrected. The plastic surgery procedure to correct an unsatisfactory “nose job” is called revision rhinoplasty. Revision rhinoplasty is one of the most demanding and technically challenging surgeries performed in the field of facial plastic surgery. To ensure patient satisfaction with the results, a person who is considering revision rhinoplasty should seek out a board-certified Manhattan facial plastic surgeon with proven experience specifically in revision rhinoplasty.
Successful rhinoplasty requires a unique combination of technical expertise and aesthetics.
Not only must the NY facial plastic surgeon have the technical skill to restructure into a fully functioning organ the complex tapestry of bone, cartilage, tissue, blood vessels and nerves that comprise the human nose; but the surgeon must have the artistic ability to create a nose that is both pleasing in appearance and properly positioned and sized to create an attractive facial balance.
