Revision Rhinoplasty Q & A

What is revision rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty at Cherry Creek Face & Skin is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which your plastic surgeon corrects the outcome of a previous rhinoplasty, or nose job. If you’re unhappy with a past nose surgery and desire a better result, you can trust the highly-trained Cherry Creek Face & Skin team with your care.

Is revision rhinoplasty right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty, your provider reviews your medical history, including past surgeries and medications you may take, and examines your nose. They might recommend you undergo computer-assisted imaging to get a better look at the inside of your nose and help you envision the final outcome of revision rhinoplasty.

How should I prepare for the procedure?

Prior to revision rhinoplasty, follow your doctor’s pre-surgery instructions. Avoid eating or drinking anything the morning of surgery and stop taking certain medications as directed by your provider. 

What happens during revision rhinoplasty?

The Cherry Creek Face & Skin team usually performs revision rhinoplasty under general anesthesia, which means you’ll be asleep during the procedure and won’t feel any pain. During surgery, your doctor might reshape bone and cartilage within your nose and improve your breathing efficiency. 

They correct structural abnormalities to ensure your nose takes on a more aesthetically pleasing shape. Your surgeon might use absorbable sutures and other advanced techniques to help you avoid packing after surgery.

What should I expect after my surgery?

After revision rhinoplasty at Cherry Creek Face & Skin, you’re taken to a recovery area until the anesthesia wears off. Have a loved one drive you home and follow all post-surgery instructions. Take medications as prescribed by your surgeon and get plenty of rest. 

You might experience swelling in your nose for about a week or longer. Attend all follow-up appointments so the Cherry Creek Face & Skin team can monitor your progress and help you avoid post-surgical complications.

Don’t live with a previous nose job you’re unhappy with when revision rhinoplasty can help you achieve the beautiful nose of your dreams. Book an appointment with Cherry Creek Face & Skin by phone or online today.
