Question : What are some of the reasons why someone would need a revision rhinoplasty?
Answer : After rhinoplasty surgery, occasionally on the side profile there will still be a slight bump. There can also be some irregularities of the nose depending on the way the tissues heal. Sometimes the rhinoplasty patients may not be happy with the way the nose looks even though it is what they specifically asked for initially. In this case, they may require revision rhinoplasty. This is one of the reasons why I use computer modeling in all my septorhinoplasty patients. I make sure that as much as possible the patient understands what we are trying to achieve and how I will achieve it.
