Rhinoplasty, when done right, can help patients feel better about their appearance
Revision rhinoplasty is something Charlotte, NC patients may turn to when they are unhappy with the results of their nose job. Imagine spending months, or even years, saving up for a nose job to fix a bump in the bridge of your nose. Then, once everything is healed, and you can finally see your results, being disappointed with what you see. You’d be mad, sad, and frustrated. Instead of feeling better about yourself, you now feel even more self conscious about your less than ideal results.

Revision rhinoplasty can repair your nose
Revision rhinoplasty is a second procedure in which a surgeon works to repair the results you received from your first procedure. If you have to undergo revision rhinoplasty, you want to ensure you have an experienced surgeon so you’ll be happy with the results this time around.

Dr. Sean Freeman is the area’s most experienced facial plastic surgeon. He has an extensive background in both rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty. In fact, he sees many patients from the Charlotte, NC area who are unhappy with the results they received from other surgeons and want it corrected.

You must wait a while before revision rhinoplasty to ensure the tissues have healed
Prior to having the revision procedure, there are a few things you need to know. First, Dr. Freeman recommends waiting to have revision rhinoplasty until a year after your initial procedure. This gives the tissues in the nose time to fully heal. Though this requires you to live with the results, which may impact your self esteem more, it will give you better results in the long run.

Second, you’ll also need to plan for both the cost of the additional procedure, as well as the time you’ll need off to recover. Like after your first surgery, you’ll experience swelling and bruising after surgery and will need some time at home to rest before returning to work and activities. Your surgeon will be able to discuss the recovery process with you in more depth following a consultation.
