What is Revision Rhinoplasty?

A revision rhinoplasty procedure may be performed when a prior rhinoplasty surgery falls short in meeting aesthetic expectations or results in functional issues. This secondary rhinoplasty is meant to correct dissatisfaction by further reshaping and contouring the nose or for addressing functional concerns by making precise modifications to the underlying tissues, bone, and skin. This surgery is delicate and is often more complex than the initial rhinoplasty, so it's important to work with a highly skilled and experienced surgeon.

Revision Rhinoplasty and Traditional Rhinoplasty

The traditional rhinoplasty procedure requires precision and skill, but since the surgeon is essentially starting from scratch, the surgery may be straightforward with no major complications. In contrast, a revision rhinoplasty often involves making adjustments to skin, tissue, bone, or cartilage that have already been worked on, meaning there is scar tissue or possibly less structure to work with, making it a challenging surgical procedure. In cases where a revision is being performed due to errors in the original rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty can be even more delicate.

What can Revision Rhinoplasty accomplish?

Patients who have faced the frustration of a previous rhinoplasty that was unsuccessful or are dealing with functional concerns resulting from it understand that the prospect of correction can be very positive. Our Hartford revision rhinoplasty patients can see benefits like:

  • Customization of the nose shape to align with your desired aesthetic goals
  • More refined nasal profile
  • Addressing breathing difficulties

Is Revision Rhinoplasty right for me?

Prior to performing revision rhinoplasty, there are certain criteria that Dr. Newman must confirm each patient meets. Generally, candidates for revision rhinoplasty will want to make corrections or adjustments after a previously performed rhinoplasty. They should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcomes of this procedure.

Preparation and Consultation

At your consultation, Dr. Newman will take time to examine your nose and face, discuss your concerns, and go over your medical history. Since this is a delicate procedure, he will want to make certain you are an ideal candidate. Preparation will be similar to your initial rhinoplasty, and we will provide detailed instructions for care.


In most cases, the procedure will also be similar to your initial surgery. While most often performed using general anesthesia, sometimes sedation and local anesthesia can be used. Dr. Newman will follow your treatment plan to make adjustments to your nose using either an open or closed rhinoplasty method, depending on your needs and treatment plan. Revision rhinoplasty typically takes about one to two hours.

Revision Rhinoplasty: Aftercare, Recovery, and Results

Patients may experience some soreness or mild pain in the area being treated, but it typically only lasts a few days. Initial recovery is typically less than a week, with optimal results appearing around three to four months or, in some cases, up to a year.
