|Before and After|
Although it is not ideal, revision rhinoplasty is sometime required following an initial rhinoplasty procedure. About 5-12% patients who have undergone a nose job surgery require a revision rhinoplasty procedure, from minor to major changes. As one can imagine, this second, or third, or fourth surgery can be more challenging and difficult than the first one – and it is important that patients carefully choose a surgeon with a extensive experience and meticulous attention to detail. Dr. Philip Miller, with over 20 years of experience as a New York rhinoplasty master, has long been dedicated to identifying the needs of revision rhinoplasty patients in a professional manner, recognizing the importance of the procedure a second or third time around.
Some of the most common problems that patients who seek revision rhinoplasty are as follows:
This is a very frequent complaint of patients who have undergone rhinoplasty. The “pinched nose” appearance can be a result of a bad rhinoplasty procedure and is represented by a compressed and “pinched” tip, resulting in not only less-than-ideal facial aesthetics but also in the obstruction of the nasal airway.
One of the main causes of the “pinched nose” appearance is the excessive removal of cartilages at the tip of the nose or the failure to replace cartilages properly after the rim incision technique. Over time, this loss of support of the tip of the nose can result not only in the “pinched nose” appearance but also in a collapse of nostrils shape and even the illusion that there is a persistent bump. Dr. Philip Miller, in revision rhinoplasty surgery of this nature, will work to rebuild the nasal support structure by reestablishing the cartilages needed – restoring not only the overall aesthetics of the nose but also in improving airflow.
Similar to the “pinched nose” problem, many patients experience the aesthetically displeasing “short nose” trait after their first rhinoplasty procedure. This may be a result of excessive removal of cartilage, resulting in a loss of support over time. A revision rhinoplasty procedure seeking to fix this problem can be tricky, so an experienced surgeon should be consulted prior to the surgery. Often, the surgery to fix the short nose problem can include reinstating and reshaping cartilages to establish support.
The Crooked/Twisted Nose
The crooked or twisted nose is a problem that many patients who have previously undergone nasal trauma report; sometimes, this problem persists even after the primary rhinoplasty procedure. Dr. Philip Miller will carefully outline the plan to fix the crooked or twisted nose aesthetics during the consultation. During the revision rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Miller will work to rearrange the nasal cartilages and the nasal bone to align them together for an aesthetically pleasing look. He has presented at national meetings his unique technique for correcting this problem.
