Only the best facial plastic surgeons do revision rhinoplasty
Best revision rhinoplasty surgeon should be done by an expert. Rhinoplasty is the most popular form of facial plastic surgery in the United States. Surgeons performed 218,924 of them in 2017, even with the rise of nonsurgical alternatives like fillers. Even though only one out of thirty rhinoplasty operations need revision, that’s still a lot with numbers like these. There are a number of things that can go wrong during a nose job, especially if the surgeon doesn’t have much experience. Things can also go wrong during recovery, such as an accident or respiratory illness that interfere with the healing process and affect the outcome.
The bad news is that a revision rhinoplasty is not a good idea until at least a year after the original surgery. Even considering the patient has already waited weeks or months for the swelling to go down, this is a long time to endure the results of a faulty procedure, especially if the nose looks worse than it did before.
How revision rhinoplasty is done
By definition, a surgeon has to perform a revision rhinoplasty in order to improve on the work of a previous surgeon. In addition, even a year after the original surgery, the tissues of the nose are probably still fragile. Because of this, revision rhinoplasty is the most challenging form of rhinoplasty, performed by only the best rhinoplasty surgeons.
Apart from this, revision rhinoplasty is very much like regular rhinoplasty. It will be particularly important this time to make sure the recovery goes smoothly. Make sure nothing comes into contact with your nose, including eyeglasses and pullover items of clothing. Be sure to get enough fluids and plenty of sleep, keeping your head elevated while you sleep to reduce swelling. Your surgeon may prescribe medication to prevent infection.If so, you should take it.
Try to avoid heavy exercise that might raise blood pressure in your head, such as lifting heavy objects or bending over. Stay out of the sun — your nose may be numb and unable to feel sunburn. Wash your hands often and limit social contact to avoid the risk of respiratory illness.
