Rhinoplasty Revision: How to Correct a Satisfactory Nose Job
There’s no denying that you had high hopes for your rhinoplasty procedure. From dreaming of your new and improved facial features to feeling more confident about showing your face to the world, you were certain that a nose job was the answer to your body confidence issues.
But fast-forward past one failed rhinoplasty procedure, and it quickly becomes evident that your new nose job is a huge source of embarrassment and misery. Not only did you not get the nose shape you wanted, but the surgeon completely botched the nose job altogether, leaving you looking less than your best.
If this sounds all too familiar, then there’s good news on the horizon – you can fix a botched nose job with a rhinoplasty revision.
Rhinoplasty revision is a term that’s applied to nose jobs that are specifically done to correct a botched rhinoplasty procedure done by another surgeon. Rhinoplasty procedures are surprisingly common; it’s estimated that ten to fifteen percent of rhinoplasty patients have to undergo correctional surgery to get the nose that they originally intended to receive. Add to the fact that nose tissues and cartilage are notorious for reshaping and resetting after a rhinoplasty procedure, it’s no wonder there’s such a strong demand for rhinoplasty revision.
Before signing up for a rhinoplasty revision, it’s important to carefully think over your reasons for wanting to undergo a nose job correction. Many people are often unhappy with the initial shape of their nose after a rhinoplasty, and think that it needs immediate correction. However, as previously mentioned, the nose is notorious for shifting shape; sometimes you won’t see your ideal nose shape for a year after having the procedure done. If you’re in the midst of this recovery period, then it might be in your best interests to wait and see how your nose turns out.
If, however, your rhinoplasty surgeon has done an unacceptable job that’s complete off the mark of what you wanted, then you might want to schedule a rhinoplasty revision as soon as possible. There’s no need to suffer with the nose you never wanted to have – so talk to a different surgeon to see if a rhinoplasty revision is right for you.
