A board certified facial plastic surgeon of the face and neck, Dr. Rizk is known to perform the best revision rhinoplasty in the world.
Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a nose job, always carries the risk of sub-satisfactory results. Whether it is because of a surgical complication, an issue with healing or post-procedural trauma, it takes a great amount of skill to be able to correct a nose that has previously been operated on. Thus, the procedure used to adjust a nose that has already been surgically altered is called "revision rhinoplasty." If you are the victim of a suboptimal rhinoplasty operation, schedule a consultation with Dr. Sam Rizk to discuss your options.
There is no standard protocol for revision rhinoplasty. A successful revision rhinoplasty requires a surgeon with much creativity and surgical knowledge to devise a suitable plan of action to restore a nose. Different rhinoplasty surgeons use a variety of techniques to enhance the appearance of a nose, thus it is particularly challenging to assess the methods used and rework them without unnecessarily damaging nasal tissue. Dr. Rizk has pioneered the use of 3D imaging techniques in his surgical procedures, and uses them to visualize the nasal anatomy before making any drastic alterations.
The method of surgery for revision rhinoplasty is similar to that of regular rhinoplasty. Patients are placed under anesthesia and will have their nasal skin lifted from the underlying cartilage structure. Depending on what the issue is, Dr. Rizk may remove or physically alter any of the enhancements used in the previous operation. Nasal tips may be rotated for more definition, and the nasal bridge may be reduced or enhanced depending on the patient’s desire. The procedure may last several hours.
It is generally ill advised to receive revision rhinoplasty before the patient has completely recovered from the initial surgery, and the true results can be seen. It is very important to have realistic expectations when choosing to undergo secondary rhinoplasty. A patient’s idea of perfection is often impossible to satisfy, and further operation on an altered nose can result in more unwanted stress for the patient, both physically and emotionally. The nose is one of the most prominent features on the face and it controls how elongated or wide a face may appear. Reconstructive surgeries should not be mistaken as a method of gaining self-confidence. Before recommending the procedure to you, Dr. Rizk will do a thorough assessment to see if you are a suitable candidate for revision rhinoplasty.
