The nose is a vital focal point of the face and heavily influences facial balance, proportions, and harmony. While rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, it could be a complex procedure and result in slight cosmetic concerns for some patients. In addition, if an individual undergoes rhinoplasty surgery at a young age, the results may change as they get older.

In that case, previous rhinoplasty patients who want additional cosmetic improvements should consider revision rhinoplasty in Virginia Beach. However, since the procedure is an additional surgery, there are a few factors to consider beforehand. Get in touch with Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery  for a consultation if you are unhappy with your initial results and want additional cosmetic changes.

Who is a Suitable Revision Rhinoplasty Candidate?

Revision surgery in Virginia Beach is primarily for any previous rhinoplasty patient who wants additional surgical cosmetic changes. In addition, rhinoplasty patients may need a revision procedure if new breathing difficulties develop after surgery.

Prevalent cosmetic concerns that many revision rhinoplasty patients have include turned up nostrils, pinched tips, and creases around the nose. Further, revision patients typically correct crooked bridges from a deviated septum and correct over-shaved bridges that create a scooped-out profile.

This procedure is an excellent option for patients whose initial surgical results have negatively impacted their confidence and self-image. In fact, after the procedure, most Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery patients report better self-confidence and body image. In addition, patients who had medical corrections performed note that it significantly improved their breathing.

Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure

A revision rhinoplasty procedure in Virginia Beach focuses on changing the shape and size of the nose by altering the skin, bone, and cartilage further. The surgery could reshape the nose’s cartilage and bones to correct any concerns the patient may have. However, if the cartilage is lacking for reconstruction, the surgeon may use cartilage from the ears or ribs as replacement material to reshape the nose.

In addition to cosmetic changes, the procedure could correct breathing difficulties that developed after the initial rhinoplasty surgery. For example, an individual’s septum may become deviated due to external trauma or changes with age, resulting in cosmetic nose changes. In that case, revision rhinoplasty could correct breathing complications along with cosmetic concerns.

However, an essential consideration before surgery is that any scar tissue formed after the first rhinoplasty may make some cosmetic changes difficult. Therefore, consult a qualified surgeon on our team to discuss realistic expectations and possible surgical alterations before receiving revision rhinoplasty surgery.
