Finding the Best Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon

Written by Dr. Litner and Dr. Solieman | December 4th, 2015

Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed. It is also one of the most subtle and complex. If a nose surgery is not done with exacting skill, it can lead to unwanted outcomes, such as a functional breathing problem or a lingering aesthetic concern. Even when a rhinoplasty is executed with a well-honed technique, the risk of complication still exists. A revision rhinoplasty can correct problems resulting from a previous procedure.

Finding the best surgeon for your revision rhinoplasty can be daunting. Here are the top three qualities you should look for in a surgeon:

  • Experience. Revision rhinoplasty is a specialized category of nose surgery and requires a high level of surgical skill. Look for a surgeon with a verifiable, strong track record of performing revision procedures.
  • Excellent communication skills. Your surgeon to be able to communicate the benefits and limitations of a revision rhinoplasty. The prospect of a second surgery can be draining. A good surgeon will be able to explain the nature of your particular complication and walk you through the best solution.
  • Integrity. Most importantly, you should feel confident that your plastic surgeon is keeping your best interests in mind. Unfortunately, some revision rhinoplasties are necessary because a plastic surgeon over-promised or did not focus on achievable results.

Although a revision rhinoplasty can correct a primary surgery, it is important to remember that too many nose surgeries can pose a danger. Even more important than the specific number of surgeries you’ve had is the details of what was done during your previous procedures. A patient who has had several previous surgeries in which structure was largely maintained will be in a better position for revision than a patient having only one prior surgery in whom there was very aggressive cartilage removal or skin injury. Maintaining sufficient structure, minimizing tissue scarring, and natural-looking results should be the priority. Before signing on to a revision rhinoplasty, you should discuss your motivations and concerns with Drs. Litner and Solieman.
