Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision Rhinoplasty Atlanta

Revision Nose Surgery

Revision rhinoplasty surgery in Atlanta can correct the results of a previous nose surgery. There are many reasons patients may choose to undergo revision rhinoplasty surgery, including, but not limited to, dissatisfaction with previous rhinoplasty results, complications caused by a previous rhinoplasty surgery, continuing functional issues of the nose such as breathing difficulties, and more. At Astra Plastic Surgery, our facial plastic surgeons are skilled in performing revision rhinoplasty surgery to help patients achieve their desired results.

What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty surgery in Atlanta is performed following a previous rhinoplasty surgery that may have been unsuccessful at repairing cosmetic or functional concerns. Because revision rhinoplasty is often a reconstructive procedure, it requires the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon. Scar tissue may be present in the nose, making this procedure increasingly difficult. Revision rhinoplasty often requires the use of cartilage or bone grafts to properly repair the internal structure of the nose.

The nose is often referred to as the focal point of the face. For that reason, many patients address common insecurities, such as nose size, shape, width, length, and more, with rhinoplasty surgery. Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures across the United States. However, not all surgeons are certified to operate on the complex structure of the nose. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer revision rhinoplasty to correct the results of a previous nose surgery.

What Are The Benefits Of Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty is required when a patient is dissatisfied with the results of a past rhinoplasty procedure. Revision rhinoplasty surgery can offer patients a variety of life-changing benefits that can improve nose appearance and function. The results of revision rhinoplasty are natural-looking and long-lasting.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Revision Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is one of the most complex forms of plastic surgery that requires the skillfulness to deliver natural-looking results and the knowledge of complete nasal anatomy to alleviate and maintain the function of the nasal passages. Often times, patients have a hard time trusting another surgeon to perform revision rhinoplasty based on a poor past experience. At Astra Plastic Surgery, our nose surgeons are highly skilled at performing revision rhinoplasty to help patients achieve their functional and aesthetic goals. Revision nose surgery is sought out to correct crookedness, persistent breathing issues, excessive scar tissue, poorly shaped nostrils, a misshapen tip, or more, following a previous rhinoplasty surgery.

The ideal candidate for revision rhinoplasty is in good general health and a non-smoker. During your consultation for revision rhinoplasty at Astra Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team of plastic surgery professionals will conduct a thorough examination of your nose, as well as your medical history. Once deemed a candidate, he will discuss your goals for the procedure. It is important that patients maintain realistic expectations for the results of their revision rhinoplasty surgery.

What Should I Expect During Revision Rhinoplasty?

Performing revision rhinoplasty requires an advanced set of skills and must be performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. Revision rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia, ensuring that patients remain comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Based on your specific needs, our nose surgeon will decide which method of rhinoplasty surgery is best suited. In most cases, revision rhinoplasty requires reconstruction of the nose, making the open rhinoplasty technique the most effective.

Often times, revision rhinoplasty requires a cartilage or bone graft to address any issues caused by the structural frames of the nose. This step may lengthen procedure time, but is necessary in achieving the desired results. Procedure times will vary by patient depending on the extent of the case, the patient’s goals, and more. Once the procedure is complete, the incisions will be closed, and a splint will be placed to promote proper healing. Patients should arrange for a ride home following their procedure.

What Should I Expect After Revision Rhinoplasty?

Following revision rhinoplasty surgery, patients can expect to experience mild-to-moderate bruising, swelling, and irritation. However, these symptoms are normal and should subside in the weeks following the procedure. These symptoms can be treated with medication. To alleviate swelling, patients should maintain an elevated head position.

Before sending you home after revision rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Killingsworth and his staff of plastic surgery professionals will provide you with detailed aftercare directions. It is important that patients follow these instructions carefully in order to maximize their results and minimize recovery time. Our staff is on hand to answer any questions you may have throughout the healing process.




What Results Should I Expect From Revision Rhinoplasty?

During your consultation for revision rhinoplasty surgery in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team will go over your expected results. The expected results are dependent on the anatomy of the nose, as well as the patient’s individual goals. It is important to remember that every patient will experience different results based on a variety of factors.

The results of revision rhinoplasty surgery are long-lasting and natural-looking. While swelling may prevent patients from noticing their final results immediately, it should subside as you continue to heal. Patients who undergo revision rhinoplasty to correct a deviated septum will experience improved breathing immediately. The final results of revision rhinoplasty surgery can be noticed anywhere from 12 to 18 months following the procedure.

How Much Does Revision Rhinoplasty In Atlanta Cost?

In some cases, revision rhinoplasty is covered by medical insurance, but you will need a personal consultation to determine if your procedure is medically necessary. You are responsible for any remaining balance after the claim is processed by your insurance. If the revision nose surgery is considered cosmetic, you are responsible for the full cost of your procedure. We accept payment by cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
