[Points of Revisional Nose Surgery]

*Tissue Preservation

It is important to minimize separation of tissues during revision in order to preserve them. This reduces recovery time after surgery and also maintain the natural nose shape by minimizing tissue damage. 

*Understanding Cause

Revisional surgery is a very delicate and difficult operation even at the hads of experienced surgeons. Therefore, It is important to be able to understand the cause of failure from previous surgery in order to complete the procedure safely and successfully. 

Cause of Revisional Nose Surgery and its Treatments

Causes for Revisional Nose Surgery can vary,
Apply suitable treatment for each patients will lead Revisional Nose Surgery satisfactory.


Contracture on Nose Tip

Neglecting infection after rhinoplastic surgery leaves scar on inner structure that causes hardening nose. Nose may become short and stiff if not treated properly. 

Treatment: After infection-causing implants are replaced with autologus tissues(corium, fat, or rib cartilage), the nose tip is reshaped using autologus septal cartilage or rib cartilage.

Imbalance in Nose and Face
Symptom: Lack of aesthetic consideration often results in a visual imbalance in nose and face, Most patients are unsatisfied with such results and revision should be considered.

Treatment: Revisional surgery, in this case, requires precise techniques to carry out size reduction or relocation of implants.

Deviated Implant
Symptom: Nose appears bent of unnatural when the implants deviates from the nose bridge.
Treatment: A new proper implant replaces the older one. The site of misplaced implant must be treated as well. 

Allergic Reaction to Silicone
Patients who were un aware of the fact that they were allergic to silicone yet received procedure may experience allergic reaction such as prolonged swelling, and fluid retention around the nose bridge
Treatments: Although allergic reactions are not easily anticipated, any silicone implants are immediately removed and replaced with autologous tissues(corium, fat, or rib cartilage)upon detection of the symptoms. 

Nose Tip Deformation Caused by L-Shaped Silicone
Symptom:When L-shaped silicone is placed on the nose tip, the cartiliage can be deformed with pressure.
The skin on the tip may become reddish and transplant that the implant would be visible or even protruding.

Treatment: L shaped silicone is replaced with another implant that would inserted only into the nose bridge area, and the tip is operated with autologus cartilage. The skin affected by deformation may be further damaged unless reinforced by autologus cartilage or alloplastic dermis.

Period for Revisional Nose Surgery

Revisional surgery is generally recommend 6 months after the preceding surgery when tissues become tender.
However, a revision of relatively simple surgery such as nose bridge augmentation, can be performed within 3 months.
In case of infection, revisions should be postponed until implants are removed and inflammation is soothed. Revisional surgery must be approached with caution since it is likely to damage tissues more than the first surgery. It is also important to note that an excessive adjustment can result in another revision.

  1. Yes, I will go for a nose surgery by Dr. Jerome Edelstein, because 3 years ago I had other one, which wasn't successful... my nose looks pretty much the same and I want to be satisfied of it. About this doctor I've heard lots of good things and I'm sure that he will do a great job!
