In recent years, rhinoplasty (rhinoplasty) has gained increasing popularity, and not just because of the correction of this organ – this procedure can change the overall look of your face. However, My Face Surgeon recommends that you always choose an experienced and professional surgeon because otherwise there may be a need for re-intervention of the nose, that is, secondary rhinoplasty. Why?
Nasal shaping is an extremely complex surgical procedure, and there are as many as 25 sub-procedures that can be performed with the help of the patient’s wishes and possibilities. The most important procedures are:
- Reducing rhinoplasty used to reduce the nose
- Augmentation rhinoplasty to enlarge the nose
- Ethnic-rhinoplasty with the help of which certain characteristics of the nose are emphasized
- Posttraumatic rhinoplasty in injury cases
- Revision rhinoplasty applied after previous nose surgery
Even the most professional surgeons cannot determine with 100% certainty what the final result will be like.
Why is new nose surgery sometimes necessary?
There are noses that are harder or easier to “fix”, so the reaction to this procedure is different. If the problem is of a more complex nature, each surgeon will have to perform additional surgery in order for the results to be in line with the wishes and goals. After the wound has healed due to the first surgery, a second operation follows, which corrects minor irregularities and determines the end contours of the nose. However, this is rarely necessary.
Another factor that has an impact is the thickness of the skin of the nose because a wound healing process depends on it. If the skin is thin, the chances are high that additional correction will be necessary.
In some people, the healing process does not take place quickly and well. Patience is essential here because the road to the end result can be much longer than expected. It usually takes up to several months “until come to its own”.
However, the most important thing is to choose a surgeon who will perform the first nose operation. My Face Surgeon advises you to choose a surgeon with rich experience, who has additionally improved in the field of rhinoplasty. Contact a surgeon, make an appointment, and consult with the surgeon about everything you are interested in regarding nose surgery. Every surgeon sometimes has to do a nose correction more than once, but why not avoid that discomfort when you already have the chance, right?
