WHAT IS SECONDARY REVISION RHINOPLASTY?
Secondary Revision Rhinoplasty is a surgical method applied to eliminate the dissatisfaction of the person with the unwanted results in terms of health or aesthetic appearance as a result of one or more nose surgeries.
WHEN CAN SECONDARY REVISION RHINOPLASTY BE APPLIED?
After rhinoplasty surgery, it takes a minimum of 6 months to 1 year for the nose to gain a new profile and the edema to decrease, although it varies from person to person. After this period of time, you can get detailed information about the planning of Secondary Revision Rhinoplasty operation by contacting your doctor.
WHAT IS THE SECONDARY REVISION RHINOPLASTY SURGERY PROCESS?
The operation and post-operative process is the same as rhinoplasty. The only difference is that since the cartilage tissue in the nose was operated according to the profile in the first operation, it will not be possible to reuse the tissue during the revision. In this case, cartilage tissue taken from the rib or ear is transplanted into the nose and the operation is terminated by revising the unwanted image. Cartilage tissue operation is extremely easy and effective.
WHAT TO CONSIDER IN REVISION NOSE SURGERY
Revision nose surgery is performed as a result of not achieving the aesthetically desired appearance as a result of the first nose surgery or as a result of functional problems that arise in the nose afterwards. This is because nose surgery is one of the most complex procedures in facial aesthetics. One of the most important issues to be considered before revision nose surgery is the choice of surgeon. It is important that the communication between the patient and the surgeon is strong and that the surgeon is qualified to meet the patient’s expectations. It is important that the patient feels both physically and psychologically ready for the operation. Realistic results should be expected from the operation.
PROCESS AFTER REVISION NOSE SURGERY
Revision nose surgery may take longer than the first nose surgery. Although patients are usually discharged on the same day, they can be hospitalized for 1 night depending on their general health status. Edema, swelling and bruises that occur as a natural part of the operation disappear spontaneously within 4-5 days. Although it varies from patient to patient, most patients return to routine life within 10 days. Positive results from revision nose surgery are observed approximately 6 months later.
WHICH METHOD IS PREFERRED IN REVISION NOSE SURGERY
Closed and open techniques are used in revision nose surgery. If major structural changes are to be made to the patient’s nose, open technique is used, and if minor changes are to be made, closed technique is used. Which technique will be applied depends entirely on the size of the deformation in the patient’s nose.
HOW LONG SHOULD THERE BE BETWEEN RHINOPLASTY AND REVISION RHINOPLASTY?
Significant results from the first nose surgery appear within 6-7 months. For this reason, the ideal waiting period for revision nose surgery is 1 year in order to fully understand the aesthetic and functional disorders.
WHO IS SUITABLE FOR REVISION NOSE SURGERY
Anyone who has had rhinoplasty before, but whose aesthetic appearance is not as desired due to incorrect application and whose nose is functionally deformed can have revision nose surgery. As an age limit, it is recommended for men to have rhinoplasty from the age of 18 to 17 for women.
CARTILAGE AND STEM CELLS IN REVISION SURGERY
Rhinoplasty surgery aims to eliminate functional disorders of the nose and to achieve a better aesthetic appearance. Shaping procedures are performed with cartilage. In cases where there is not enough cartilage for shaping, cartilage is taken from the patient’s ribs and shaping is performed. In order to eliminate deformations caused by collapse in the nose or lack of adipose tissue, the fat taken from the patient himself/herself with the stem cell method is used as a filler. Nose surgery is one of the most complex and demanding aesthetic surgical procedures in the category of facial surgery. For this reason, it should be performed by specialized surgeons in good clinics and hospitals.
