Revision rhinoplasty is performed if an initial nose job does not deliver a patient's desired results. The procedure is complex and must be completed by an expert facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon.
Dr. Jonathan Cabin is a Arlington, VA facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with expertise in revision rhinoplasty surgery. As part of his dedication to providing exceptional patient care, Dr. Cabin works closely with revision rhinoplasty patients to deliver unprecedented treatment results.
What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?
A revision rhinoplasty is used to correct aesthetic or functional problems related to a prior nose job. For example, if a primary rhinoplasty patient has trouble breathing through his or her nose after surgery, a revision nose job is available to treat this issue. Or, if a nose job results in an unbalanced facial appearance, a revision rhinoplasty helps restore facial harmony.
Dr. Cabin's goal is to help a revision rhinoplasty patient achieve a functional and natural-looking nose. To accomplish this goal, Dr. Cabin closely evaluates a patient before he performs a revision rhinoplasty. He also tailors a revision rhinoplasty to his patient, thereby ensuring this individual achieves a nose that complements his or her cheeks, chin, eyes and other facial features.
What Are the Differences Between Primary Rhinoplasty and Revision Rhinoplasty Procedures?
A primary nose job is used to reshape the nose, improve the facial aesthetic and correct functional or structural defects of the nose. It is commonly performed if an individual is not satisfied with the appearance of his or her nose or has experienced nose trauma.
Revision rhinoplasty is completed only after a primary rhinoplasty. Additionally, revision nose surgery is more intensive than a primary rhinoplasty, and it usually requires extra time to complete. It also is a highly specialized surgical procedure and requires an expert facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon like Dr. Cabin.
What Are the Benefits of Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty helps patients achieve a balanced and functional nose. This often results in increased self-confidence and an improved overall facial appearance. In some instances, revision rhinoplasty helps patients address snoring or other breathing issues that otherwise interrupt their sleep.
Will I Qualify for Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery?
It is crucial to meet with a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon before revision rhinoplasty surgery. At this time, a surgeon can address a patient's revision nose job concerns and questions, as well as conduct an in-depth patient evaluation.
Dr. Cabin prioritizes patient care. As a leading Los Angeles facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Cabin requests a patient consultation prior to performing a revision rhinoplasty procedure.
During a revision rhinoplasty treatment consultation, Dr. Cabin examines the upper and middle portions of a patient's nose. He also evaluates a patient's nostrils and various functional components of the nose. Dr. Cabin next reviews a patient's medical records. If Dr. Cabin believes revision rhinoplasty can help a patient achieve a harmonious facial appearance, he then recommends surgery.
Dr. Cabin wants each revision rhinoplasty patient to establish realistic expectations and feel comfortable with the procedure. As such, Dr. Cabin provides revision rhinoplasty patients with insights into all aspects of treatment.
