There is no second failure!
If you would like to have successful surgery
(Dr. Kim, Harkyoung)
Rhinoplasty is one of the plastic surgery types
that revision surgery is being done as much as primary one.
According to statistics released by the Korea Consumer Agency in January,
about 3 out of 10 patients complained of side effects after rhinoplasty undergone.
There are a lot of cases where most of revision rhinoplasty patients
underestimated their face’s harmony, and when they went for rhinoplasty,
they often go for revision surgery because of the unnatural result.
Other than that, there are also cases where some patients
have problems with the skin tissue,
such as nose contracture or silicone allergic reaction after rhinoplasty.
Also, there are revision rhinoplasty cases caused by implant displacement
or the nose shape deformation by silicone.
Banobagi Plastic Surgery Clinic, Dr. Kim, Harkyoung said,
"The difficulty level of revision rhinoplasty is higher than normal rhinoplasty
and there are variable causes of revision surgery.
Surgery plan must be established after the precise examination done
inside of the nose since it’s difficult to determine by only naked eye.
Especially, there might be a lot of skin problems such as adhesion or desquamation,
which makes it much more difficult than the primary surgery.
He also said, “Therefore, the surgeon should have plenty of experiences
of the overall understanding of the revision surgery, implants, and the human’s soft tissue."
It is also important to know and decide the appropriate time for revision rhinoplasty.
If turned out that you simply do not like the result of nose height or line,
then the most appropriate procedure is to have revision
after at least 6 months from the last operation.
It is because the swelling could only go down after about 6 months
and the current nose condition can be figured out correctly,
and the tissue damage from the surgery is recovered then.
If the surgical wound is not fully recovered, revision surgery may be difficult
because the internal nose condition is not recovered yet.
On the other hand, if side effects occur due to the problem of implants,
it is better to visit the hospital and solve it as soon as possible
because of the high risk of contracture as well as inflammation.
Especially, in the case of skin necrosis;
if the revision surgery time is missed, problems on surgical area may occur
and the shape may be shriveling up or the nose tip might be upturned.
Since it could cause upturned nose,
it is recommended treating the inflammation area as soon as side effects occur
and doing the revision surgery.
Dr. Kim said, "It is important to decide when to progress the revision surgery
and consider the reason, surgery timing and the surgery method
also checking patient's skin and physical condition.
Also, please do the consultation carefully with a specialist to consider the nose function,
face harmony, right choices for implant and cartilage,
than prioritizing the surgery only to elevate the nose height."
