What to Do When You’re Not Happy with Your First Rhinoplasty

Did your rhinoplasty results fall a bit short of your expectations? What’s the next step? If you’re unhappy with your nose after nasal surgery, come see us. Revision rhinoplasty can provide a redo for a rhinoplasty gone wrong. Your dream nose is still achievable, and we’ll do our best to make it happen. Don’t give up.

What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Are you unhappy with your rhinoplasty results? After rhinoplasty, some patients struggle with newfound breathing problems, and others wish their aesthetic results were different. Revision rhinoplasty surgery is a type of rhinoplasty performed to correct issues from a previous rhinoplasty. Scar tissue and cartilage damage are often present from the first surgery, complicating the procedure considerably. Many plastic surgeons do not offer revision rhinoplasty at all. Dr. Epstein is highly skilled at nasal surgery and knows how to create stunning results for his revision rhinoplasty patients.

Why Are You Unhappy with Your Rhinoplasty Results?

Functional and aesthetic issues are two major reasons for revision rhinoplasty. Often these issues can be corrected at the same time during a single procedure. Take a few minutes to think about why are you unhappy with your rhinoplasty, and then schedule your consultation with Dr. Epstein. We’ll work together to create a surgical plan that addresses your functional and aesthetic issues for an end result you’ll love. We know you’re frustrated about the problems with your first rhinoplasty and will work closely with you to ensure that things go smoothly the second time around.

How to Avoid a Rhinoplasty Redo

If you aren’t happy with your first rhinoplasty, we can help, but it is always better to prevent than to correct. If you’re preparing for your first rhinoplasty, these tips can help you avoid a future revision rhinoplasty.

  • Choose Your Rhinoplasty Surgeon Carefully– The right surgeon is essential for stunning rhinoplasty results. Choose a plastic surgeon that specializes in rhinoplasty and rhinoplasty revision surgery. Dr. Epstein is a member of the Rhinoplasty Society and is a passionate rhinoplasty surgeon. He performs each rhinoplasty as a functional rhinoplasty, ensuring that your aesthetic results are balanced with good functionality.
  • Know What You Want- Communicate your goals with your surgeon throughout the surgical process. Know what you hope to achieve and what results are possible. We use computer imaging to give you a sneak peak of your rhinoplasty results before surgery. This tool helps us to ensure that patients love their future results before we ever schedule surgery.
  • Follow Recovery Instructions– Take care of your new nose after rhinoplasty. Taking care of your new nose during the healing process will help to reduce complications during recovery.
