Revision Rhinoplasty – What You Should Know
As with any rhinoplasty procedure, the major focus of revision rhinoplasty is establishing facial harmony. Since nasal support decreases with each rhinoplasty procedure breathing function is of important concern in secondary rhinoplasty. Secondary rhinoplasty are always more difficult to perform than primary rhinoplasty in that the scaring has changed normal anatomical configuration.
One of the challenges in revision rhinoplasty is in finding adequate cartilage for the structures that have been weakened or removed by previous rhinoplasty. Dr Simoni uses septal cartilage as the first choice. unfortunately, at times septal cartilage is missing in secondary nose jobs. In these cases Dr Simoni will frequently use ear cartilage as a substitute.
