What is Revision Rhinoplasty/Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a type of surgery that improves the appearance and function of the nose. It is a nose job that can change the shape and size of the nose, create a new profile and improve the appearance of the nose. It is especially appealing to people who need corrective surgery because a previous surgery left them with unfavorable results.
How can I benefit from Revision Rhinoplasty/Rhinoplasty?
There are a number of advantages to having revision rhinoplasty or rhinoplasty, including the ability to breathe with ease, a more beautiful profile and enhancement of self-image.
What is the Procedure for Revision Rhinoplasty/Rhinoplasty?
Both surgeries can be done using the open technique or the closed technique. General anesthesia is administered when revision rhinoplasty or rhinoplasty are performed.
When the open technique is done, cuts are made inside the nose and across the piece of flesh that separates the nostrils and connects the nose to the upper lip. Dr. Kay is able to see the cartilage and bone once this is done and can then determine what improvements need to be made in regards to symmetry, angle and deprojection of the tip of the nose.
The closed technique uses cuts inside the nose to change the shape of bone and cartilage. This technique is used to minimize the dorsal hump, to work on an abnormality in the bridge or end of the nose or to straighten the nose.
