Problems that require revision surgery are mainly due to the following reasons;
- Failure to achieve the desired result even though there is no obvious aesthetic problem,
- Small irregularities on the nasal dorsum, slight asymmetries at the tip of the nose,
- Asymmetry and irregularities that negatively affect nasal breathing,
- Nasal breathing with loss or deterioration in cartilage or bone structures severe asymmetry and deformities that can adversely affect
Revision rhinoplasty surgery is a surgical procedure that requires more experience than the first operation. After the first surgery, the nasal tissues become more adherent, since the nasal cartilages were used in the first surgery, the need for cartilage use may arise during revision surgeries. In such cases, cartilage tissue is taken from the patient’s own ear cartilage or from the patient’s own rib cartilage to reconstruct the nose.The ear cartilage is removed by making an incision behind the auricle. The rib cartilage is removed by making an incision of approximately 2 cm under the breast fold. During the healing period, the incision site is hidden under the breast fold .
Revision rhinoplasty surgeries should be performed at least 6 months after the first surgery. In trauma-related fractures, revision rhinoplasty is performed regardless of the time passed after the operation.
