How Revision Rhinoplasty Can Help

There are a few different scenarios when revision rhinoplasty, also called secondary rhinoplasty, is appropriate. You may have simply “outgrown” your current nose and want to change the contours accordingly. In other cases, patients pursue secondary rhinoplasty because the results of their original procedures were unfavorable. Common concerns treated by secondary rhinoplasty include the following:

  • Respiratory problems caused by primary surgery
  • Too much or not enough tissue removed
  • Aesthetic complications including a hump, asymmetry, or excessive scarring

On the Reasons for Rhinoplasty page, Dr. Chaffoo reviews common concerns patients have about their nose, including those who have previously had rhinoplasty, his solutions to these concerns, and before & after photos of his actual revision patient cases.
