Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery
Rhinoplasty is a delicate procedure requiring extensive training, experience, skill and artistry. In the wrong hands, rhinoplasty can be a disappointing experience. It can be upsetting when your nose surgery does not return the cosmetic results you expected or the functional improvements you needed. Dr. Azouz of Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in Dallas can examine the outcome of your previous surgery and discuss how to correct any problems. As a fellowship trained, board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Azouz has decades of experience performing rhinoplasty, and he can correct previous work with revision rhinoplasty.
Reasons for Revision Rhinoplasty
Poor surgical techniques or lack of experience can compromise the surgical outcomes of a nose job. In some cases, this is an aesthetic issue, such as failing to properly reshape a bump on the bridge of the nose. While this can be distressing, it may be easier to correct than other problems or complications. When a rhinoplasty goes wrong, the problems can be severe.
Your nose is primarily made of cartilage, which is flexible but strong. However, if cartilage is damaged, it does not repair itself easily. Improperly performed rhinoplasty that affects this delicate structure can lead to a sunken nose bridge, breathing problems, crooked or lopsided nasal tip, nostrils of different sizes and an overall asymmetry that looks more like an injury than an improvement. Even in cases that are not considered severe, damage to the cartilage can create a deviated or perforated septum, which can compromise your breathing, increase your chances of sleep apnea and create chronic sinus problems.
Plano Nose Job Correction
Choosing a skilled and experienced surgeon like Dr. Azouz is a must for revision rhinoplasty. Since your nose has already been altered, the surgery is more complex. Depending on the degree of revision, your surgeon may request photos of you before you had surgery to establish the original anatomy of your face. Dr. Azouz has a complete understanding of nasal and facial anatomy and an eye for artistry that consistently produces beautiful and natural results. If you have had a poor outcome from a previous nose job, or have concerns the internal structures were damaged, contact Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery today for a rhinoplasty revision consultation.
