Revision rhinoplasty, also referred to as corrective or secondary rhinoplasty, is performed at our practice to correct breathing or cosmetic abnormalities from a previous rhinoplasty procedure. Jon Kurkjian, MD is a board-certified plastic surgeon who completed specialized training with a focus on secondary rhinoplasty.
Benefits of Revision Rhinoplasty
Secondary rhinoplasty can improve the following irregularities:
- Unnatural nasal appearance
- Crooked nasal tip
- Hanging or retracted columella
- Persistent nasal hump
- Over rotated or under rotated nasal tip
- Over shortened nasal length
- Nasal Obstruction or Breathing difficulties
- Saddle nose deformity
- Inverted V- deformity
- Displaced or exposed nasal implant
Corrective rhinoplasty at our practice helps re-establish your nose to balance well with the rest of your facial features.
At the initial consultation, Dr. Kurkjian works closely with you to understand why you are unhappy with the results of your previous rhinoplasty procedure. After evaluating your current health status, nasal anatomy and cosmetic goals, a treatment plan is developed to provide you with a customized solution.
Dr. Kurkjian will then be able to show you your new look on the VECTRA® XT 3D imaging system located in our office. Using this ultra-high resolution camera technology, you will be able to visualize the planned procedure and see an immediate simulated before & after of your new nose! This technology has truly improved communication with our patients and significantly advanced pre-operative patient education.
Revision rhinoplasty surgery may require cartilage grafting from the ear or rib and thus associated bandages may be required. All patients have their external nasal splint and sutures removed 5-6 days after surgery. Swelling and temporary discomfort are typical after the procedure. Most of our patients return to work and their routine activities within 1 week after surgery.
At our practice, we hope to provide all of our patients with a safe, comfortable and rewarding experience. Individualized care and attention are a central focus; from initial consultation to complete recovery.
