Reasons for Revision Rhinoplasty
By Peter Brownrigg on June 12, 2012
There’s no questioning why its appearance is important to you. After all, the nose is the most prominent feature on the face! As someone who has undergone a rhinoplasty (also known as a nose job), you are entitled to get the look and function of your nose right the first time around. This, unfortunately, is not the case in some circumstances, but at the practice of Peter Brownrigg, M.D., your ideal nose can most certainly be attained once and for all. For our patients in Ottawa, revision rhinoplasty can accomplish just that.
Have you had the misfortune of undergoing a rhinoplasty that yielded disappointing results? Are you simply interested in getting a nose job for the first time? Does your post-surgery nose look plain artificial? Whatever your need, our highly qualified and seasoned surgeon, Dr. Brownrigg, has the skill to deliver the ideal results for you.
Reasons for Revision Rhinoplasty
Reasons for revision rhinoplasty vary. Typically, Ottawa rhinoplasty patients who seek this treatment have experienced one or more of the following after recovering from the previous rhinoplasty procedure:
- The nose appears to have undergone an obvious nose job
- The nose looks more cookie-cutter than customized for the patient
- Dissatisfaction with the look of the nose following recovery
- Dissatisfaction with the function of the nose following recovery
- Realistic expectations for the original rhinoplasty that were not met
The most important thing after a rhinoplasty recovery is that the patient feel good about their new nose in terms of look and function. In other words, revision rhinoplasty is necessary when the prior rhinoplasty performed does not satisfy the needs of the patient.
As with all surgeries, candidates for revision rhinoplasty should be in good health and possess realistic expectations.
