Rhinoplasty (or nose job) is known for being one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures. It is also notorious for being one of the most difficult to perform.

There are many reasons why a patient may be unhappy with the shape, size, or appearance of their nose. Whatever the reason, many people turn to rhinoplasty surgery to correct it. While most are happy with results, not every patient is satisfied after their initial nose surgery procedure.

If you’ve had an unsuccessful rhinoplasty and are unhappy with your results, We here at Clinique Face MD understand the sensitive nature of the issue. Dr. Moubeyed, a double board-certified head and neck surgeon practicing in facial plastic surgery located in Montreal Quebec, can address and correct aesthetic concerns through a revision rhinoplasty procedure.

What Is A Revision
Rhinoplasty Procedure:

Revision rhinoplasty is surgery to change the shape of the bridge and the tip of the nose on a patient that has already undergone nasal surgery in the past. Revision facial cosmetic surgery can be performed whether it was cosmetic rhinoplasty or septoplasty to improve the function of the nose.

Patients who are looking to have revision or secondary rhinoplasty challenge the skills of an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon. Because a surgeon is working on a nose that has already undergone surgery, revision surgery is are among the most difficult cases nasal head and neck surgeon practicing in facial plastic surgerys will face.

Why Do Patients Choose Revision Rhinoplasty

Patients choose to have revision rhinoplasty performed to fix a previous surgery for a number of reasons including:

  • Unhappy with the overall nose reshaping or final appearance
  • Scars that may have occurred during or after the procedure
  • Nasal septum obstruction deviated septum, or nasal breathing issues caused by a collapse of the cartilage
  • Residual dorsal humps
  • Asymmetry of the nose tip or a pinched appearance
  • Pointy or uneven nose tip which is usually due to cartilage protrusion
  • The nose bridge is crooked or off–center
  • Saddle nose, when the bridge looks scooped out
  • An ‘inverted V’ look to the sides of the nose. This occurs when too much of the middle third cartilage has been removed. This can also make nasal obstruction worse.

Dr. Moubayed performs revision surgical procedures using ultrasound with a piezoelectric instrument to reshape the bones of the nose without damaging soft tissues. It is a delicate procedure that can be done with both closed rhinoplasty (no cuts are made on the outside of the nose) or an open rhinoplasty (a small cut is made on the skin between the nostrils)

Revision rhinoplasty often requires the use of cartilage to replace damaged and/or deficient cartilage removed in the prior surgery. It often requires grafting from the ear or the rib, or the envelope of a muscle in your temple (temporalis fascia) to rebuild previously damaged structures. Revision surgery is typically longer and more delicate than primary rhinoplasty

Benefits of Revision

The benefits that a revision rhinoplasty offers closely mimic the reasons to get primary rhinoplasty surgery. Some of these include:

  • A refreshed & rejuvenated appearance
  • Improved facial symmetry
  • Corrected nasal function
  • Improved breathing
  • Boost confidence

What to Expect From Revision
Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery

During the consultation process with Dr. Moubeyed, every detail and stage of the procedure will be explained. This ensures a complete understanding of the entire procedure process, desired outcome, and post-treatment care before undergoing surgery.

Since an initial rhinoplasty procedure takes about one to two years to fully heal, it’s important that the nose fully heals before undergoing an additional surgery.

Recovery Time from
Revision Rhinoplasty:

After successful surgery, you should plan a week of recovery from work, school, and social activities. After a week, most patients can easily be hidden any bruising with concealer.

You should not apply pressure to the nose (for example with glasses or swimming goggles) for six weeks after surgery if your bones were re-shaped, as bones take six weeks to heal. Pain medication may be recommended for a few weeks to deal with any pain issues.

Light physical activity can be resumed after a week, but you should refrain from heavy lifting for the first few weeks to prevent nosebleeds, and avoid contact sports for six weeks.

Risks of Revision
Rhinoplasty Facial Surgery

When performed by an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon in Montreal, the risks of complications are minimal. However, in some cases, patients may experience pain, bleeding, infection, visible scars, asymmetries, unsatisfactory cosmetic result, nasal obstruction, septal perforation, tip numbness, and stiffness. Some of these risks occur during the initial rhinoplasty surgery and are reasons why people seek out a revision nose surgery in the first place.
