Find out how Dr. Newman can perform revision surgery to produce a more balanced and beautiful facial aesthetic.
Rhinoplasty is a complex and difficult procedure after which some patients require a second operation to address cosmetic or functional problems. At Dr. Fredric Newman's practice in Fairfield County, CT, he is well-known in the field for his skill in performing revision rhinoplasty.
Patients undergo revision or secondary rhinoplasty if the first procedure results in cosmetic or functional problems that need to be improved or repaired. This corrective rhinoplasty procedure can be even more challenging and delicate than the primary rhinoplasty and requires a plastic surgeon with specialized knowledge of the operation.
Dr. Newman’s decades of experience, combined with his knowledge of the latest techniques and technological innovations, provide you with the perfect combination of expertise, care, and innovation. We call it “The Newman Difference.”

In fact, because it is such an individualized operation, it can be argued that it is the most difficult cosmetic surgery procedure to perform well.

Many patients choose to undergo their initial rhinoplasty because they feel their noses are too broad, crooked, long, or pointy or that they have distractingly large humps or bulbous tips. Some other cosmetic issues or mistakes that might cause a patient to request revision rhinoplasty include:
Removal of too much tissue from the nasal tip can result in a collapsed appearance of the nostril and tip of the nose.
If the previous rhinoplasty surgeon failed to perform the same technique on both sides of the nose, it could result in an unbalanced appearance.
This could be due to failure to address a deviated septum or overcorrecting and narrowing the nose to the extent that the sidewall collapses inward.
Noticeable bumps and dips may remain if not enough or too much cartilage was removed. This requires revision to smooth the nasal bridge.
The formation of scar tissue can result after rhinoplasty. If this occurs, it can affect overall aesthetics and asymmetry, resulting in the need for revision.
Over or under-correction can result in a nose that appears too thick or thin. In these cases, we can refine the nose by reducing it or using grafting material.
The size and proportions of the nose play a huge role in facial aesthetics, but these features are also inextricably linked to the nose’s function.
Thus, in certain cases, the damage from previous nasal surgery may not be purely cosmetic, they may cause functional issues. These impediments can be physically and emotionally traumatic for the patient, hindering their self-esteem, social life, and physical activities. Some of the complications that could make reconstructive surgery and rhinoplasty techniques necessary include:
If you feel you could benifit from revision rhinoplasty Fairfield plastic surgeon Fredric Newman can address problems caused by a previous nose job by:
Filing down bumps, narrowing the width of the bridge, refining the tip, and bringing down the size of the nostrils are all examples of techniques that can be performed to address areas that were under-corrected during a previous surgery.
If a previous surgery resulted in excess removal or twisting of supporting bone and cartilage, we will replace any missing structure and reposition cartilage to improve the size and shape of the nose. We can augment areas that are too concave or small with implants or donor tissue from another site on the patient’s body.
If a buildup of scar tissue occurs after a nose job, we can remove the excess scar tissue and refine to results of your procedure to produce an improved outcome. This can result in improved symmetry, a smoother bridge, and a more attractive nasal tip.
