Finally Get the Nose You’ve Been Wanting
The nose is one of our most prominent features; the centerpiece of the face. Many people have a desire to alter the appearance of their nose for a more balanced, streamlined look. Others may have breathing difficulties and a rhinoplasty helps to correct those issues and offer relief. For those who’ve undergone surgery to try to address either cosmetic or functional concerns and the results were not as expected or mistakes were made, with a revision rhinoplasty Westchester County residents or guests can get the results they'd hoped for the first time around.
Revision Rhinoplasty with Dr. Fredric Newman
With Dr. Fredric Newman, MD, FACS, and his entire team serving Westchester County revision rhinoplasty procedures, from consultation, to surgery, to follow up, receive outstanding results. Dr. Newman uses an advanced technique that he developed, now known as “The Newman Nose,” to deliver stunning outcomes after each and every rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty surgery that he performs.
If an initial rhinoplasty surgery resulted in aesthetic dissatisfaction or functional issues, a revision rhinoplasty procedure could be performed to correct these problems. This secondary rhinoplasty will also reshape and contour the nose or address functional challenges by making changes to the bone, underlying tissues, and skin on the nose. Dr. Newman will decide whether open or closed revision rhinoplasty is best to correct each patient’s particular concerns. Revising an original rhinoplasty, especially when it is due to errors, can be even more challenging than an initial surgery, so it is crucial to seek a plastic surgeon with lots of experience and specialized knowledge.
A traditional rhinoplasty is the initial surgery that a patient receives when they are seeking to change the shape or size of their nose. Sometimes, rhinoplasty does not turn out well or at least does meet aesthetic or functional expectations. In this case, there are many different options which can be utilized to make corrections or bring the nose to a satisfactory level. Dr. Newman has operated on patients who have undergone as many as seven previous rhinoplasties and provided great results.
If you’ve experienced the disappointment of an unsuccessful rhinoplasty or dealt with functional issues because of it, you understand that getting it fixed would be incredibly positive. With our revision rhinoplasty Westchester County residents or visitors can receive the sculpted, more balanced nose hoped for after that initial surgery.
