Revision Rhinoplasty

In rhinoplasty operation, even very small errors can manifest themselves as significant asymmetries, respiratory function disorders, irregularities in the form of protrusions and depressions on the back and tip of the nose.

Nasal revision surgery is mostly performed as a result of shrinking the nose more than necessary. Because the excessive reduction of the nose causes the narrowing of the air ducts and consequently causes breathing complaints, and also leads to the inability of the nose skin to adapt to the new structure, as a result of which the nose skin sags. In addition, asymmetries caused by different interventions in both parts of the nose are one of the common deformations. These and many other aesthetic and functional defects can be eliminated with revision surgeries.

Minor revisions are performed with local or general anesthesia, and almost all major revisions are performed with general anesthesia. Minor revisions take 30-45 minutes, while major revisions can take 3-5 hours. The length of time is determined by the multiplicity and difficulty of deformities, the need for rib cartilage, ear cartilage. If the risk in terms of anesthesia is not specified, the result of the operation is always important, not the duration.
