Imperfect rhinoplasty or nose job surgery can result not only in undesirable cosmetic changes but also poor nasal and/or sinus function. As a facial plastic surgeon and Ear, Nose and Throat surgeon, Dr. Yagoda sees a number of patients who seek revisions of a previous procedure. Revision rhinoplasty can be challenging because the plastic surgeon must work with the end results of a previous procedure, perhaps done by another cosmetic surgeon, which may have removed structures vital to nasal structure or function. To make matters more complicated, she must surmise what the prior cosmetic surgeon did, and work to correct this without a “road map” of the prior surgcial course. This creates a whole new layer of complication and requires unsurpassed surgical skill and aesthetic sensibility. This is the one plastic surgery procedure where the art of medicine is far more important than its science. Dr. Yagoda is regarded as the facial plastic surgeon other doctors choose when they want the very best. If you’re dissatisfied with a previous rhinoplasty, you’ll want to put yourself in Dr. Yagoda’s hands.
Revsion rhinoplasty or nose job surgery can be performed in Dr. Yagoda’s New York City office-based surgical facility or in a NYC hospital, under local anesthetic with IV sedation or under general anesthesia. This plastic surgery procedure takes between 45 minutes and two hours. The exact surgical technique is uniquely tailored by the plastic surgeon for each patient but most of the time, all incisions are made internally and there are no visible scars. Sometimes, an incision is made at the base of the nostrils and the incision is carefully hidden.
You can return to work in about a week after your revision rhinoplasty surgery and you’ll be able to use a stationary bike or treadmill by the second week. By the third week, you can return to full activities. Although you’ll see immediate improvement, your nose’s shape and your profile will continue to refine over the next 12 to 18 months.
Like all surgery, revision rhinoplasty has certain risks including infection, bleeding, and reaction to anesthesia. Other risks include structural damage to the nose. Dr. Yagoda will discuss these potential risks as well as the benefits of this plastic surgery procedure in full during your consultation in her New York City office./p>
