Secondary Rhinoplasty Q & A
What is a secondary rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is considered to be one of the most complicated plastic surgeries since it requires altering both bone and cartilage in a susceptible and prominent 3-dimensional area of your face.
Secondary rhinoplasty, or revision rhinoplasty, is even more challenging, and it is something that patients travel from far and wide to seek revision rhinoplasty in Philadelphia with Dr. Oren Friedman.
If you’re one of the five to 10% of patients who aren’t satisfied with the results of their first rhinoplasty, you might be a candidate for a secondary rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Oren Friedman at Dr. Oren Friedman Facial Plastic Surgery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or Radnor, Pennsylvania.
Secondary rhinoplasty, or revision rhinoplasty, is a procedure that Dr. Friedman performs to correct or improve upon the work done in your original rhinoplasty. Dr. Friedman is an expert at revising your rhinoplasty to help you get the nose you set out to achieve with your first procedure, even if he wasn’t the operating surgeon for your first surgery.
Secondary rhinoplasty, or revision rhinoplasty, is a routine part of Dr. Friedman’s daily practice, and something that he’s particularly passionate about. Many surgeons from around the world refer patients to Dr. Friedman for rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty, especially if the patients present particularly complicated and challenging surgical problems.
Am I a candidate for secondary rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty?
Dr. Friedman often suggests waiting for a full year after your original rhinoplasty before deciding whether you want to proceed with a revision. This time delay gives your nose a proper amount of time to heal and settle into its final shape before moving forward with a revision rhinoplasty surgery.
It also gives you an opportunity to adjust to the nasal changes so that you can make a most informed decision about whether you truly feel you need to pursue revision nasal surgery.
If you do decide to get a secondary rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Friedman, you’ll need to refrain from nasal medications, like sprays and steroids, for three months before your surgery to reduce the risk of bleeding and improve your nose’s ability to heal.
You also must refrain from cocaine use for a year before your surgery, since it can cause total nasal destruction. Dr. Friedman might also ask you to refrain from nicotine products and to avoid secondhand smoke in order to ensure the best possible outcome.
What happens in a secondary rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty?
You and Dr. Friedman will have a detailed consultation to discuss what you do and do not like about the results of your original rhinoplasty before deciding on a treatment plan to help you get closer to your ideal nose.
At times, cartilage and other tissues from other parts of your body may be used to help support your nasal shape and function.
The actual procedure is very similar to your original rhinoplasty. Dr. Friedman makes incisions in your nose, reshapes your bones and cartilage, then closes up your incisions. He specializes in a minimalist approach that uses advanced techniques to achieve natural-looking results with rapid recovery time. Some of the methods that he employs include:
- Preservation rhinoplasty
- Closed or endonasal approach
- Diamond rhinoplasty with Piezzosurgery® technology
