A revision rhinoplasty surgery is an extremely complex and sensitive surgery. It’s a surgery that’s performed when an issue has appeared from a previous nose job surgery which is why it’s essential that the pros and cons of the surgery during a consultation. Depending on the issues that you’ve had will determine whether revision rhinoplasty surgery is worth going through.
In the video above, there is an example of a patient who has gone through a revision rhinoplasty procedure. The reason they chose this is that they were having many issues after having an initial nose job performed at a previous place elsewhere. These issues included:
A Deviation in the nose
What is worth considering is that there will be a longer healing time required compared to an initial nose job and the swelling can also take longer to settle. For example, the case study shows pictures of the patient’s nose 6 weeks after the surgery and then a year after. Despite there being a large time-frame from when the surgery was done, there are still signs that the patient’s’ nose is still healing. The swelling of the nose is also evident in the images.
There are alternatives to revision rhinoplasty including open and closed procedures depending on the work required but it’s important that patients have realistic expectations of what can happen during the revision rhinoplasty procedure and this will be discussed in the consultation.

We continue our vlog series into the new year with the focus on blepharoplasty surgery and what causes ptosis in the eyelids in the first place. It can mainly be caused from ageing and the dropping of tissue around the periorbital region which is located on the upper face. More specifically, there is the impact of relaxation in the forehead which causes forehead ptosis, and tissue and muscle reduction found internally in the eye. These can be common reasons for what causes ptosis around the eyelids.
There are further details provided about the blepharoplasty surgery also, including the expected recovery time after the surgery, how long the surgery takes as well as how the surgery is performed. As always however, it’s always important to understand the surgery that you go through and what causes ptosis as well as other eye defects.
