What is revision rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty isn't merely a second chance; it's an art of restoring both form and function. This complex and intricate procedure addresses issues from past surgeries, ensuring symmetry, proportion, and functionality. With the unpredictability of tissue healing and scar formation, patients need a specialist like Dr. Liebertz, who understands the complexities of the nose's architecture. Trained by some of the world's most revered facial plastic and rhinoplasty surgeons, Dr. Liebertz specializes in revision rhinoplasty and can repair a range of cosmetic or breathing issues from a prior nose surgery.

Are you a candidate for revision rhinoplasty?

If your previous nose job didn't meet expectations, consider a revision. But patience is key: ensure you've fully healed—typically a year after the original surgery. Optimal candidates are those in good health, preferably non-smokers, who wish to refine the aesthetics or functionality of their noses.

In the words of our patients…

"Dr. Liebertz is not just a surgeon; he's an artist. He restored both my breathing and facial aesthetics. I trust him implicitly." – AJ

What can revision rhinoplasty treat?

  • Poor nasal proportion: Adjusts disproportionate nasal width or length, ensuring facial harmony.
  • Asymmetry: Corrects an asymmetrical appearance from the initial surgery or healing inconsistencies.
  • Breathing difficulties: Addresses structural issues hindering airflow, promoting optimal respiratory function.
  • Nasal tip concerns: Refines bulbous, drooping, upturned, or excessively pointed nasal tips.
  • A hump on the bridge: Reduces a prominent hump when a prior surgery did not produce satisfactory results.
  • Nostril issues: Adjusts nostrils that may be excessively wide, large, or appear uneven.
  • Over-reduction or under-reduction: Corrects situations where too much or too little tissue was removed during the primary surgery.
  • Visible scars: Minimizes or repositions scars that are visible or aesthetically displeasing.
  • Septal perforations: Repairs holes in the nasal septum which might cause discomfort or breathing issues.
  • Collapsed bridge: Reinforces or rebuilds areas that have collapsed after initial surgery, whether immediately or years after the procedure.

Step one: Your consultation

Dr. Liebertz believes in a collaborative approach. During your consultation, he will meticulously review your prior surgical journey, discuss expectations, and together craft a vision for your nose. Armed with insights from your medical history and a comprehensive nose examination, a customized surgical plan will be curated just for you.

What is the procedure?

Much like the primary surgery, the process begins with anesthesia. Utilizing the original incisions, the open technique is often favored for its superior accessibility. Depending on your unique needs, tissues may be reshaped, and cartilage grafts possibly sourced from your septum, ears, or ribs. Supporting splints may also be used post-operation for optimal stabilization.

The journey to recovery

Revision surgeries demand patience. Given the complexities involved and altered scar tissue, healing might take longer than your initial procedure. Yet, under Dr. Liebertz's guidance, patients are empowered with post-operative care tips, ensuring a smoother recovery. Two weeks' rest is often advisable, along with pain management and other guidance to speed healing and total recovery.
