If you have had nose-reshaping surgery and were left unsatisfied by either the appearance or the nasal functionality, you could be the ideal patient for a rhinoplasty revision, also known as a secondary nose surgery.
In most cases, revision rhinoplasty is performed using an open technique, especially for patients with a crooked nose or significant breathing problems.
When performing a rhinoplasty revision, Dr. Ransom believes it is critical to deal with not only the aesthetic concerns but also any functional issues.
Synthetic materials have been known to be used during rhinoplasty from time to time. However, they tend to have a relatively high rate of complications. Removing these unsafe materials during the revision rhinoplasty is often necessary. Dr. Ransom then works to replace these synthetic materials with your own tissues via grafting techniques.
