What Is Revision Rhinoplasty & How Does It Work?

Rhinoplasty revision is a surgical procedure that addresses complications or undesired results following an initial nose job (rhinoplasty). It is widely known as one of the most technical and challenging procedures to perform. Some reasons for secondary rhinoplasty include unsatisfactory aesthetic results, poor recovery and healing, breathing and functional issues, and changes in results due to the aging process.

At FSIBR we use The Total Nose Approach to resolve cases where patients present with both cosmetic and functional concerns.

Due to previous rhinoplasty procedures, your revision rhinoplasty surgeon may choose cartilage for structural tip or bridge support from elsewhere in the body, such as the ear or rib. Soft tissue irregularities may also require tissue to be sourced from elsewhere to provide a natural-looking appearance along the bridge of the nose or tip. Skin grafts may be needed to reopen the nasal airway where scarring is present.

Each patient who visits FSIBR surgeons for a revision rhinoplasty undergoes a thorough evaluation of the entire nose. The external anatomy and the internal anatomy, namely the septum, sinuses, and turbinates, will be carefully examined to ensure that your nose surgery will correct both the appearance and the function of the nose.

What to Expect During Revision Rhinoplasty?

With our team’s expertise and care, you can rest assured that you are in good hands and will receive the best possible results from your revision rhinoplasty procedure.


Revision rhinoplasty begins with an in-depth consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in facial surgery. During the consultation, the surgeon will take detailed notes and measurements of the nose and discuss the patient’s aesthetic concerns and expectations for the procedure.

Pre-operative Preparations

Before surgery, imaging studies may be required to provide a detailed three-dimensional visualization of soft tissue and anatomical structures. The images will help the surgeon plan the exact steps of surgery to develop a personalized approach tailored to each patient’s unique anatomy.


The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. Each procedure is unique to the patient’s needs and functional or aesthetic desires. During secondary rhinoplasty, incisions are made to separate the skin from cartilage and bone to replace or repair identified structures in the nose to improve the function or appearance of the nose. After correcting any structural defects, correcting any asymmetries or bumps, trimming excess tissue, and sculpting the bridge line accordingly, excess soft tissue is removed before re-draping skin over the newly shaped nose.

Post-operative Care

After completing the procedure, incisions are closed with sutures while bandages or splints are placed to hold tissues in place while they heal. To reduce swelling and discomfort during recovery, cold compresses can be used frequently during this period. Follow-up visits with your plastic surgeon may also be required during this time to monitor healing progress.

What Is Recovery Like?

Dr. Melyssa Hancock - (inspect patient)

The recovery that follows revision rhinoplasty is similar to that of primary rhinoplasty. However, in some cases, scar tissue from previous rhinoplasty procedures can slow down the healing process. If the necessary changes are minimal, swelling may resolve more quickly. However, if a moderate or extensive amount of work is required, then an extended healing time should be anticipated.

What Are the Benefits of Revision Rhinoplasty?

Secondary rhinoplasty restores confidence in your appearance, and additional benefits of the procedure include:

  • Enhanced facial symmetry where cosmetic issues, such as a bulbous tip is addressed
  • Improved breathing when nasal obstruction from previous procedures is corrected
  • Restores trust in surgical procedures
  • A more balanced facial profile
  • Restores self-esteem

Who Is a Candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty?

You may be an ideal candidate for revision rhinoplasty if you are unhappy with your primary rhinoplasty results and you meet the below criteria:

  • Have no pre-existing medical conditions that may negatively affect surgery or results
  • You have healed from primary rhinoplasty
  • You have realistic expectations
  • Are in good health

What Are the Risks Associated With Revision Rhinoplasty?

Your surgeon will discuss the possible risks and side effects with you during consultation. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon, experienced in secondary nose job procedures can significantly reduce these risks and side effects.

  • An adverse reaction to anesthesia
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Poor healing
  • Infection
  • Scarring

How Much Is Revision Rhinoplasty?

The cost of a revision nose job depends on the extent of the repair and improvements required, your surgeon, surgical facilities, and more. Your surgeon will provide you with an estimate of your desired procedure during the consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Secondary rhinoplasty may work out more expensive than your initial rhinoplasty due to the additional resources and time needed to deliver your desired results.

This is a question best directed at your insurance company. It is seldom that insurance covers a nose job for cosmetic reasons, but they may consider covering revision rhinoplasty if it is required for medical reasons.

Revision rhinoplasty can be performed as an open or closed rhinoplasty procedure. Our surgeons will individualize their approach for each patient. At your visit, Dr. Hancock and Dr. Klimczak will thoroughly evaluate the external appearance, as well as the internal functioning of the nose. Often in secondary rhinoplasty, one or more structures can collapse, requiring rebuilding during the secondary procedure. These issues will be reviewed in great detail with you.

Many cosmetic surgeons perform rhinoplasty, but only a select few truly specialize in correcting the form and function of the nose. FSIBR surgeons have earned reputations as nose surgery specialists.

Other nose and sinus procedures commonly performed during the same session include:

  • Balloon sinuplasty for chronic sinusitis
  • Turbinate reduction or nasal sculpting for breathing
  • Removal of nasal polyps

  • Brow Lift: Treats drooping brows and deep wrinkles of the forehead, restoring a smoother, more youthful contour to the upper portion of the face
  • Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty): Eliminates excess skin from the upper eyelids and removes under-eye bags and redundant skin from the lower eyelids
