Revision rhinoplasty is a procedure performed for patients who are unhappy with the results of their primary nose job. It can be done to correct a wide variety of aesthetic issues, along with functional problems such as obstructed breathing.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Dr. Moran performs revision rhinoplasty under general anesthesia. The incisions are mainly internal, although you may also require an external cut along the columella, which is the strip of tissue separating your nostrils. Through those carefully placed openings, Dr. Moran will take a number of corrective steps.
She will often bolster weakened areas of the nose using grafts made from your own tissue – usually cartilage harvested from the ear, rib, or septum. She may also reshape your nasal bones and cartilage, while preserving or improving your breathing function.
As she refines your nose and addresses breathing challenges, Dr. Moran will tailor the surgery entirely to your needs. There’s no such thing as a standard, one-size-fits-all nose job – and yours will be completely customized to ensure that you emerge from surgery loving your new look.
