With revision rhinoplasty, Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Mashhadian can make adjustments or corrections to your nose shape after unexpected or unsatisfactory results from another surgeon. Dr. Mashhadian is committed to listening to your concerns as a patient and planning your procedure to align with your ideal results.
Assessing Your Goals and Expectations
During your initial consultation with Dr. Mashhadian, you’ll discuss what you like and don’t like about your nose and the results from the original rhinoplasty procedure. You should bring photos of yourself before your first procedure and example pictures of noses that you admire so that we can talk about and better understand your expectations.
Once Dr. Mashhadian knows what your cosmetic goals are, he can recommend whether revision rhinoplasty or non-surgical rhinoplasty is the right procedure for you.
Your Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure
Dr. Mashhadian usually performs open rhinoplasty to revise your original nose surgery results. Open rhinoplasty allows Dr. Mashhadian a direct view of the internal structures of your nose for more accurate modifications of your nasal structure and greater versatility during surgery.
The surgical incision is made in the columella, the underside of your nose so that your scar will be well hidden after your recovery. In general, your initial recovery from revision rhinoplasty will be similar to your first procedure and take one to two weeks.
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty Alternatives
In many cases, you may not need another surgical procedure. You may be able to achieve your desired look through non-surgical means. Dr. Mashhadian has perfected the art of using dermal fillers, such as Radiesse® and Juvederm®, to bring balance to your facial features without the need for invasive surgery.
Injectable fillers are versatile and well suited to masking small imperfections in your nose shape. With fillers, Dr. Mashhadian can improve the shape of the nasal tip or dorsal hump. You will even have input during the injection process to ensure that you are satisfied with your results.
