The cause of problem for Revision Rhinoplasty needs to be accurately judged
to decide the method of the surgery, therefore,
very experienced surgeon has to operate for the highly satisfied result.

Wobbly Implant

During the surgery if implant has not been inserted correctly on the lower
part of periosteum and instead it has been inserted straight under the
skin, the implant would movearound.
→ Making new space on the lower part of periosteum to proceed with revision surgery.

Thinned Skin

It could happen when implant is thick and it does not match to the
contour of nose or when skin has been thinned.
Illuminated nose bridge or nose tip/ Nose bridge turning red
→ Thinner implant/ use of scalp fascia

Exposed Implant

When implant has been used up to the tip of nose (not related to
cartilage covering implant), it could happen as skin is getting thinned.
→ Readjusting the length and height, strenghten nose tip with ear cartilage
or AlloDerm.

For nose bridge- we use Gore-Tex and artificial silicon
For nose tip- we use autologous cartilage from nasal septum and ear
(Different type of material can be used depending on the nose shape and thickness of the skin)

Post-operative care for rhinoplasty is also important!

Ice-pack applying right after the surgery is helpful to reduce swelling.
After the surgery, swelling and bruises are shown differently in individuals. Avoid putting down your head or lying faced down
while sleeping. It is also helpful to support your back and neck with 2-3 soft pillows for reducing swelling or pain when sleeping.
You may have nosebleeds for initial 1-2 days from the surgery day. If nose-bleeding, please wipe out with clean tissues.
After the surgery, your nose needs to be fixed with taping till the nose settles down. (Do not take off the tapes voluntarily.)
After the surgery, drinking alcohol and smoking should be avoided for at least 3 weeks because they make scar healing prolonged.
After the surgery, blowing your nose should be avoided and wearing glasses or sunglasses should not be done for a month.
Major swelling will almost go away after a week from nose bridge while minor swelling will still remain on glabellas and nose tip.
These swelling will be shown differently and recovered slowly according to individuals.
Going for sauna or hot spring should be avoided for 3 weeks.

Every patient has the swelling after the surgery but there will be differences depending on individual constitution

* Side effects such as bleeding, inflammation, infection, etc. can be experienced after surgery and consult with your doctor as individual results may vary.*
