Cartilage Revision Rhinoplasty

When people ask what is revision rhinoplasty, the answer almost always involves cartilage reconstruction. Why does cartilage play such a prominent role in revision rhinoplasty? Sometimes, cartilage is not removed correctly during the original surgery, leading to aesthetic and functional concerns. During revision rhinoplasty, we also commonly use cartilage grafts to replace damaged cartilage and enhance the structure, appearance, and function of the nose.

Nasal Tip Revision

Rhinoplasty tip revision addresses aesthetic concerns such as a pinched or bulbous nasal tip. The procedure may involve correcting dents or narrowing nostrils to achieve the desired results. Tip plasty is commonly used during revision rhinoplasty to refine and reshape the nasal tip without making structural changes to the rest of the nose.

Scar Tissue Revision

Scar tissue is a part of healing; it’s your body’s natural response to any type of surgery. However, different factors affect how much scar tissue is formed, and sometimes excessive scar tissue must be removed to improve nasal appearance or function—or both. Scar tissue revision involves reopening the nose, cutting through scar tissue, and re-sculpting the nose to the desired shape. Excess scar tissue is very thick and difficult to manipulate within the small confines of the nasal structure. We can perform a detailed analysis using cutting-edge computer imaging to determine the best rhinoplasty revision approach.

Improving Breathing & Nose Function

Your nose is intricate and complex. In trying to improve the appearance of your nose, your original surgeon may have inadvertently compromised your nose function. Perhaps too much cartilage was removed, causing the sides of the nose to collapse and limiting the airflow through your nostrils. Maybe an internal nasal valve needs to be reinforced or reconstructed to improve airflow and alleviate breathing difficulties. If you have breathing problems after healing from a rhinoplasty, choosing a rhinoplasty revision surgeon with expert precision is essential.
