Revision rhinoplasty is a complex procedure that should be done by a specialist. Dr. Paul Warner Papillion performs numerous primary rhinoplasties and also many revision or secondary rhinoplasties. Unfortunately, both short term and long term results can end up not quite what we expected. Most of the time, the changes in the nose are due to aging and natural shifts in the cartilage and bones. However, on occasion, the first surgery may not achieve the result we desire with possible issues with scar tissue formation, shifts during healing, or the surgeon was not able to provide the result you desired. The second surgery is often more difficult than the first surgery which means you need someone with more than just baseline expertise in rhinoplasty. Dr. Paul Warner Papillion would love to sit with you and talk about what can be done to get you closer to the result you desire. Dr. Papillion answers some common questions asked about revision rhinoplasty below. Keep reading to learn more.

What will recovery be like for a revision rhinoplasty?
Recovery can be very similar to the first rhinoplasty. Most of the same incisions are used. Most of the overall process is the same. The real answer depends on what you need to have done to address your concern. Sometimes it is a very simple adjustment, other times everything has to be entirely redone.
Do you offer computer animations to see what results are expected to look like?
