Unsuccessful primary Rhinoplasty, post operative infections or an over aggressive surgery and unpredictable post operative healing are few common causes of an undesirable result. In 15 years of Dr Ghaisas’s Rhinoplasty practice, about 1/3rd of his cases comprise of revisions from all over the country. His main focus being improvement of both form and function.
Revision Rhinoplasty has its own limitations because of the scarred tight skin and soft tissues. The limited availability of graft materials mandates for harvesting grafts from other sites like ear, rib, temporalis fascia.
The first attempt is the best attempt, so one should always have a realistic expectation from the revision surgery.
