Revision Rhinoplasty: Let’s Try This Again
Most patients who desire to reshape their nose through rhinoplasty are prepared to undergo surgery once, and generally their expectations are on the nose. However, there are instances where results are not at all what the patient expected, or where structural issues within the nose created some untoward results. On the rare instances where a “do over” rhinoplasty is required to help the patient achieve his/her aesthetic goals and/or improve structural aspects such as airflow in the nose, selecting the surgeon is of critical importance. Revision rhinoplasty is a much more difficult and complex procedure and should only be performed by plastic surgeons with extensive experience in revision surgeries and with an elegant knowledge of otolaryngology (ear, nose & throat medicine). Houston’s Michael Eisemann, M.D. is triple board certified, has over 30 years of experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery, and is an expert in head and neck surgery. Obviously, a patient who had an undesirable first experience with plastic surgery is unlikely to seek out another procedure – even a corrective one, but Dr. Eisemann has helped hundreds of patients to achieve their desired results through revision surgery.
