Revision rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to repair the form or function of the nose after a previous surgery. As this is typically a more complicated procedure than an original “nose job,” it requires a surgeon with a sophisticated understanding of nasal structure and who uses the most advanced surgical techniques.

Why Is Revision Rhinoplasty More Complicated than the Original Procedure?
In many cases, performing revision surgery after one or more previous rhinoplasties requires a great deal of skill, artistry, and precision. The surgeon must effectively navigate structural adjustments from the previous surgery(s) and the resulting scar tissue. In the simplest cases, revision rhinoplasty may be a matter of removing residual excess bone or cartilage, or it could be a complicated procedure that involves restructuring the entire nose. Revision rhinoplasty typically takes much longer to perform than primary rhinoplasty.
Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure
Revision rhinoplasty procedures vary widely from patient to patient, depending on what problems exist from the earlier surgery and what revisions need to be made.
There may be problems with any area of the nose – the tip, the middle third, the upper third, or all of the above.
At Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery, your revision rhinoplasty is customized to resolve your unique concerns. This surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia. It may be closed rhinoplasty, in which incisions are made on the inside of the nose, or open rhinoplasty, with an incision on the underside of the nose between the nostrils.
The aim of revision rhinoplasty is to restore both structure and function. If it is necessary to add cartilage to recreate shape and proportion, extra cartilage may be obtained from your septum, your ear, or one of your ribs. If not enough cartilage was removed during your primary surgery, our team can take correct this aesthetic flaw.
