What is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty addresses complications or dissatisfaction from a primary nose surgery. These procedures can be particularly challenging due to the altered anatomy and scarring from previous procedures, requiring an expert facial plastic surgeon specializing in revision rhinoplasty.

Common Issues Addressed

  • Over-skeletonized Noses: Excessive removal of cartilage and bone can lead to a collapsed appearance.
  • Crooked Noses: Misalignment from previous surgeries can cause functional and aesthetic issues.
  • Asymmetry: Disproportionate features can disrupt facial harmony.
  • Breathing Issues: Problems like a deviated septum or middle-vault collapse can affect nasal airflow.

Dr. Levine’s specialization in facial plastic surgery and 25+ years of experience makes her a top choice for revision rhinoplasty. Her private surgical center on the Upper East Side is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, providing a comfortable and safe environment for patients. Dr. Levine’s comprehensive approach includes a thorough consultation to understand the patient’s goals, detailed surgical planning, and post-operative care to ensure the best possible outcome.

The Process

Consultation

The revision rhinoplasty process begins with an in-depth consultation. During this session, Dr. Levine assesses the patient’s nasal structure, discusses their concerns and goals, and reviews their medical history. She takes the time to understand the specific issues from the previous surgery and explains the potential solutions and outcomes. This thorough evaluation helps in creating a customized surgical plan tailored to the patient’s unique needs.

Procedure

The revision rhinoplasty procedure is performed in a state-of-the-art surgical facility equipped with the latest technology. Dr. Levine may use either an open or closed rhinoplasty approach, depending on the complexity of the case and the specific corrections needed. Open rhinoplasty involves an incision at the base of the nose, while closed rhinoplasty does not require external incisions. The surgery aims to correct structural issues, refine nasal shape, and improve both function and aesthetics. Dr. Levine’s meticulous technique ensures minimal scarring and natural-looking results.

Recovery

Recovery from revision rhinoplasty varies depending on the extent of the surgery. Initially, patients may experience swelling and bruising, which gradually subsides over a few weeks. Dr. Levine’s patient care team provides detailed post-operative care instructions to promote healing and achieve the best possible results. Most patients can return to their normal activities within two weeks, although full recovery and the final results may take several months. Follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor the healing process and ensure patient satisfaction.
