People who inquire about a revision rhinoplasty in Austin are unhappy with their primary procedure’s aesthetic and functional results. Undesirable results may occur due to a complicated nasal condition or shape, incomplete or overcorrection by the surgeon, or only due to the patient’s healing pattern.
What should I expect?
If your nose requires correction after primary surgery, the first step is to evaluate the structure to craft a custom surgical plan. Every person is facing a unique set of problems. At Face Austin, Dr. Antunes believes there is “no shortcut to quality,” and you can be confident that every detail will be carefully planned and executed, based on your wishes, no matter how complex the problems.
After your initial evaluation, we will schedule your surgical date. As this procedure may require several hours, you will be under general anesthesia. You will not experience any discomfort. Following your surgery, your nose will be bandaged. Depending on the extent of the corrections needed, the recovery time will vary.
In some cases, the nose must be reconstructed, with cartilage added to restore the structure. In other cases, only the bone and cartilage require reshaping to achieve the results you envisioned. If you have an odd-looking pinched tip or a collapsed nose bridge, cartilage grafts must be performed to provide the support needed to correct the condition.
