Rhinoplasty revision surgery, or secondary rhinoplasty, is a procedure designed to help patients who have had nose surgery before and are either unhappy with the aesthetic results or are not experiencing proper functionality. Dr. Zuckerman attended some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the world, including Brown University and New York University. He is highly skilled at addressing aesthetic and functional problems stemming from a previous rhinoplasty surgery to give you results that look natural and provide a better cosmetic balance with other facial features.

Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery

Revision rhinoplasty procedures are very complex and require the extraordinary skills and abilities offered by specialty-trained Dr. Zuckerman. The procedure typically involves the reconstruction and reshaping of cartilage and bone with grafts taken from the ear or the rib. Care is taken to ensure that proper breathing function is restored and/or your aesthetic goals are achieved. Procedure time will vary on the extent of treatment that’s necessary; however, secondary rhinoplasty procedures typically take longer than primary rhinoplasty procedures to complete.

Rhinoplasty Revision Recovery

Patients should expect similar recovery experiences with rhinoplasty revision surgery as they had with their original rhinoplasty. The head will need to be elevated for at least one week after surgery, and the nose should be protected from potential harm in the next few months. Swelling should be about 75 percent gone after about a month, and any residual pain and discomfort in the days following surgery can be controlled with medication. Patients should refrain from blowing their nose for at least a week after rhinoplasty revision surgery. Normal daily routines can typically be resumed after about one week.

Rhinoplasty revision surgery can do wonders to helping you address problems you may be having from a previous surgery.  Dr. Zuckerman will discuss your options with you in detail at your initial consultation, and together, you can decide which course of action for treatment will be best for your needs.
