Revision rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure intended for correcting the nose aesthetically and functionally, performed on patients who have undergone a surgical operation for aesthetic or functional purposes that can be considered unsuccessful. Revision rhinoplasty can be performed on patients, who have undergone a rhinoplasty but still have the same problems or whose problems are thought to continue. For a revision operation, the patient should wait for a period of at least 6 months or 1 year.
The recovery period after revision surgeries may be longer than the recovery period after the primary operation. Since the tissues are much adherent due to the primary operation, the surgical procedure will be more challenging.
