Revision Nose Surgery
Nose surgeries for aesthetic purposes are among the most common operations in aesthetic surgery. Naturally, in frequently performed surgeries, results that the patient is not satisfied with are more common. These can be simple defects in the nose that can be noticed from the outside, such as simple bone and cartilage asymmetries, which can be corrected with practical methods, as well as large enough to require significant and extensive surgery, such as a significantly crooked appearance of the nose, excessive curvature of the bones and cartilages, excess or deficiencies, or serious problems in breathing. may appear as a problem. In addition, “supratip deformity”, which is defined as the drooping of the nose, which occurs most frequently in the late period due to the incompatibility of the upper and lower halves of the nose, may be encountered. The treatment of all these conditions is possible with surgery to a great extent and is called secondary rhinoplasty.
Secondary rhinoplasty In such a case, it is necessary to examine the existing problems in detail before deciding on surgical treatment. The most important challenge here is to eliminate the irregularities in the bone and cartilage structures, to complete the deficiencies, and to ensure that the nose takes a natural shape by carefully removing the excess. For this, it may be necessary to take bone or cartilage from the areas outside the nose. However, it is much more difficult to correct the disorders in the nasal skin or mucous structures covering the inner surface. However, a corrective surgery will often benefit the patient. It would be correct to perform secondary or corrective rhinoplasty approximately 6 months after the first operation. This period is important in terms of full healing, softening of the tissues and the emergence of the final result. Patients who are operated for the first time in this type of surgery are more likely to encounter less satisfactory results than expected. However, detailed examination of the patient’s deformity, physician-patient cooperation will be effective on the result.
