What is revision rhinoplasty?

After the nose surgery, reoperation is necessary if the shape is different from the shape you want, when the implant is visible, when the implant falls or is bent, when an extrusion occurs. Reoperation should be done with a high degree of discretion, because the tissue may be damaged by previous conventional nose surgery. It is important to know exactly the cause of the failure and to plan the surgery with sufficient consultation with skilled specialists.

When to choose revision surgery?

  • It is recommended to wait at least 6 months after surgery.
  • If the first operation was a simple rhinoplasty to heighten the nose bridge, a revision is possible within 3 months of the first operation.
  • It is reco0mmended to go forward with the revision once the tissue where surgery was performed primarily has settled down, the scars are not hard, and when the swelling has decreased.
  • There are many cases in which the surgeries have yielded better results over a gradual period after the 6-month mark, so it is advisible to choose whether to do a revision after carefully monitoring the progress of the surgery.

Surgery process according to the causes

When the bridge of the nose seems bent

After taking out the original prosthesis, a new prosthesis that has been shaped is reinserted into the nose.

When the prosthesis moves in the nose

The reason for the movement of the implant is when the implant is placed under the skin rather than the periosteum. In this case, correct the implant by placing it under the periosteum.

When the tip of the nose has been altered in shape due to the prosthesis

After the implant is removed, the shape of the tip of the nose is made naturally using self-tissue. iWell prevents the tip of the nose from reddening by wrapping the cartilage using autogenous fascia.

When an extrusion has occurred

After straightening out the extrusion by softening the scar tissue inside the nose, and corrects the cartilage of the nasal tip. After that, the nasal tip is corrected with autologous cartilage or donated cartilage.

When the prosthesis is visible

When the implant is visible due to a thin layer of skin, the patient’s dermis or fascia is designed to fit the shape of the individual's nose, and then the implant is wrapped and inserted.

Where the bridge of the nose is overly heightened

After removing the existing prosthesis, insert a newly prosthesis designed to fit the face of the individual and correct it to a natural height and shape.

Where the nasal tip has been lowered

By using the septal cartilage, a supporting structure is set at the nasal tip to make it firm. By carrying out a nasal tip plastic surgery at the same time, a natural and straight nose can be made.
