How successful is Revision Rhinoplasty surgery?
Most of the time, an experienced surgeon can produce long-lasting results that both of you are pleased with—often for several decades. However, even in the most experienced hands, there are no guarantees in surgery. Dr. Givens’ approach to success begins with a private consultation to physically examine your nasal structure and ultimately understand your concerns prior to developing a customized treatment plan.
How soon can I undergo a Revision Rhinoplasty, and is it more expensive than a Primary Rhinoplasty?
While Dr. Givens is empathetic to your concerns and needs, she will not schedule a revision rhinoplasty in Austin for at least six months from the date of your first surgery and more likely closer to a full year unless absolutely necessary. It is imperative to allow for most if not all of the post-operative swelling and inflammation to resolve prior to further operation. A revision surgery is often more expensive than a primary rhinoplasty as repair and restoration procedures are usually very time-consuming and much more complex.
Will I need a Revision Rhinoplasty if I break my nose after my first nasal reshaping surgery?
Trauma to the nose affects each patient differently. As a result, there is no guarantee as to if you will need further treatment. However, you should notify Dr. Givens if you do incur a traumatic incident after your initial reshaping procedure to address the issue and discuss future treatment options.
