What Issues Can Revision Rhinoplasty Address?
Posted In Rhinoplasty Issues Addressed by
When your rhinoplasty results are not what you expected, it’s natural to seek out a revision procedure as soon as possible. After all, the sooner you look the way you want to look, the better! Non surgical revision rhinoplasty is one way to get your results as quickly as possible. This is because the results from non surgical procedures tend to be visible much more quickly than results from surgical procedures (due to recovery).
Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty is capable of addressing a wide variety of issues commonly experienced by patients who are unhappy with the results of their first rhinoplasty procedure. That dissatisfaction can arise from a number of issues, so it might be helpful to take a look at the specific complaints that could arise from rhinoplasty procedures.
Common Issue #1: A Bumpy Bridge
A bump in the bridge of the nose is not uncommon. In fact, this bump could develop for a wide variety of reasons. In many cases, that bump may have been the original reason for the surgical rhinoplasty. Patients may want a revision for a number of reasons, including the following:
- The original surgery may not have sufficiently eliminated the bump. That is, there may still be a little bit of that original bump. Sometimes the elimination of unwanted cartilage is not always as accurate as we’d like.
- In some cases, scar tissue may cause the bump on the bridge to “regrow,” though it will likely not reach the same size as it originally did. Still, the patient could be dissatisfied with the result.
- Something might have happened during the recovery to compromise the results of the procedure. This usually means something at least slightly unpredictable happened, so these types of issues can be hard to anticipate.
Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty is capable of mitigating bumpy bridges by adding volume to the bridge. That might sound counter-intuitive, but by adding volume around the bump, Dr. Rivkin can create the appearance of a smooth and even bridge. That’s what most patients are looking for, anyway.
Common Issue #2: Shallow Bridge
Another common issue that tends to crop up after a rhinoplasty is that the bridge is suddenly too shallow. This can happen for a wide variety of reasons. However it happens, a bridge that is too shallow can be mitigated using a Non Surgical Nose Job Revision procedure.
A shallow bridge can have a few different drawbacks:
- It can create difficulty with glasses (the glasses might have nothing to rest on)
- It can make your face look flatter than you might like
- It can distort the ratio of space between your eyes
- It can distort the overall appearance of your nose
There are, of course, other drawbacks to a flat bridge. Some patients will feel uncomfortable or self-conscious because of it. By adding volume to the bridge with a non surgical procedure, Dr. Rivkin can make your nose look more proportional and more attractive.
Common Issue #3: The Little Things Add Up
The nose, overall, is a small portion of your face. But it makes a big impact, largely because of the role that proportions play in your face. The same could also be said of the nose itself. Small issues in the nose can be far more noticeable than you otherwise might think.
These small issues—unsatisfactory as they might be—do not tend to give patients the motivation to go get a surgical revision procedure. After all, a surgical procedure for a small change can seem like it’s just not worth it (especially given the months of recovery time involved).
This makes Non Surgical Nose Job Revision procedures particularly appealing for patients who have smaller issues that cause a good deal of dissatisfaction. In other words, if there’s a small thing that’s wrong with your nose—a small detail that’s bothering you—then a full surgical procedure might be a bit too much.
The better way to go is with a Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure. That way you can see the results immediately (and approve them). This helps a many patients finally see the results they’ve always been after without having to go through surgery again.
There’s No One Right Reason
Whatever the reason you’re dissatisfied with your original nose job, a Non Surgical Revision procedure is almost always an option. It’s important to point out that even though there might be “common” reasons why patients want a revision, there is no one right reason.
In other words, whatever reason your nose might be bothering you should be good enough to for you to get the procedure you want. At the end of the day, it’s important to have a nose that you enjoy looking at. And one way to ensure you get that is with a Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty procedure.
