Revision Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery)
Despite the wide-spread jokes about the ease of “getting a nose job”, the decision to have rhinoplasty is momentous and potentially life-changing, involving considerable planning, decision-making, and cost. For those who have not gone through this process, it is impossible to imagine the disappointment when the results of the surgery are not what you had envisioned. Perhaps the new nose gives your face an unnatural shape or is in disharmony with your other features. Perhaps the new nose has a pinched, unnatural look, or has created unexpected breathing problems. Whatever the reason, there is no need to live with continued unhappiness over your appearance. A revision rhinoplasty can correct the results of a previous rhinoplasty and finally give you the beautiful nose and perfect profile that you have been dreaming about for so long.
A successful rhinoplasty—one that subtly restores a balanced profile and enhances your natural beauty—is very difficult to achieve, especially when the structures of the nose have already been altered during a prior surgery. Dr. Gary Motykie of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles is a world-renown, Board Certified plastic surgeon with the artistic vision to foresee how changes to the size and/or shape of the nose will impact the entire face, and the surgical skill to implement the planned changes correctly. Dr. Motykie knows that each patient is unique and deserves more than a “cookie-cutter” approach. He will take the time necessary to develop a customized surgical plan that will give each and every patient the perfect nose, the balanced profile, and the harmonized features that they desire.
About Revision Rhinoplasty
During your initial consultation, it is critical to determine why the previous rhinoplasty was unsuccessful in order to ensure that similar mistakes are not repeated. For instance, the original surgeon may have used a cookie-cutter approach, rather than taking into consideration the patient’s unique facial features, or he may have misunderstood the patient’s aesthetic goals. Poor surgical techniques can also result in a “botched nose job”, while the unexpected build-up of scar tissue in the nose can distort the final results. While planning the revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Motykie will listen carefully to your concerns, and will work with you to design a new nose that more precisely harmonizes with your features.
Unfortunately, a revision rhinoplasty is often more complicated and takes longer than a primary rhinoplasty because pieces of the nasal framework are already missing and because scar tissue may have distorted the anatomy of the nose. In addition to reshaping the existing structural framework, most revision rhinoplasties will involve a cartilage graft, in which cartilage from behind the ear or another donor site on the patient’s body is used to re-build and re-shape the structure of the nose. As with primary rhinoplasty, Dr. Motykie will work carefully with each individual patient in advance to develop a precise surgical plan that will incorporate any steps needed to compensate for the results of the prior surgery, as well as fulfill that patient’s unique aesthetic goals.
