Is revision rhinoplasty right for me?
Every rhinoplasty is a careful balance between facial harmony and nasal functionality. If you’ve had one or more previous rhinoplasty procedures, the existence of scar tissue may be a limiting factor in what corrections are possible. Beverly Hills revision rhinoplasty often requires the insertion of cartilage from other areas to repair earlier work. Deviation of the nasal septum or other cartilage deficiencies will require adding new material.
What does a revision rhinoplasty entail?
In most cases, you Beverly Hills corrective rhinoplasty will require cartilage discreetly harvested from the ear or elsewhere. This “donated” cartilage leaves no noticeable marks. If soft tissue filler is needed to cover deficiencies along the bridge of the nose or the tip, this may involve a small incision within the hairline.

What is the recovery like?

You will be asked to sleep on your back for a few weeks to avoid interfering with the healing process while you sleep. You cannot blow your nose for four weeks after surgery. While you may experience some bruising around the eyes, especially if the nose has been straightened, this will fade in a couple of weeks. The sutures dissolve on their own.
