Nose aesthetics (rhinoplasty) is the most common aesthetic intervention in Turkey. It is a type of surgery that men and women frequently apply for both functional reasons and purely aesthetic reasons.
Revision rhinoplasty, on the other hand, is the name given to the second, third or fourth nose aesthetic surgery that serves to correct the errors and complications that cannot be corrected or occur after the first nose surgery.
It is not difficult to understand that the nose is located in the middle of the face and therefore its position makes it the detail of the face on which the gaze is instinctively focused.
It is not possible to ignore the nose to evaluate the overall harmony of the face. When asked which part of the body you would like to change, it is no coincidence that 80% of the answers are about the nose.
Therefore, when you decide to change the shape of your nose, we recommend that you choose your doctor with precision so that you do not have to correct it as much as possible with a subsequent operation.

What is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty can be defined as re-doing a previous nose surgery. This type of surgery can be performed for reasons such as unsuccessful results of the previous surgery, continuing discomfort or problems.
Revision nose surgery can be done to correct the defects of the previous surgery and to improve the shape and size of the nose.
Revision nose surgeries can often be more difficult and longer-lasting because it is more difficult to remove the effects of a previous surgery. Therefore, it is important that the doctor who will perform the surgery is experienced and competent.
Before the surgery, your doctor will give you information about when the surgery will be performed, how it will be done and what results can be expected afterwards.
It will also give you information about when you can recover after surgery and when you can return to normal.
Why Does Nose Surgery Fail?
Rhinoplasty can fail for many reasons. The following are some of the reasons:
Insufficient experience of the surgeon: Operations performed by an inexperienced surgeon may cause difficulties in obtaining the desired result.
The patient’s expectations were unrealistic: If the patient’s expectations were not realistic, there may be a mismatch between what the surgeon can do and what the patient wants.
Congenital structural problems: Congenital structural problems can cause problems that occur after rhinoplasty.
Inadequate use of technique in the first surgery: Inadequate use of technique in the first surgery may cause problems that may require revision surgery.
Improper post-operative care: Incorrect post-operative care may result in not achieving the desired result.
Natural healing process: The natural healing process after rhinoplasty may cause the desired result not to be achieved.
These reasons are for general information only and may not apply to every person. Therefore, please consult with a locally certified plastic surgeon for recommendations for rhinoplasty and to get all results, including the possibility.

How Long After the First Surgery Should Revision Nose Surgery Be Performed?
There is no definite time frame for how long after the revision nose surgery should be performed after the first nose surgery. However, it is generally recommended that at least 6 months pass from the first rhinoplasty for revision rhinoplasty.
This time is designed to be sufficient for tissue healing required for the nose. In addition, for revision surgery to be performed, the results of the first surgery should be inadequate or the discomfort should continue.
This time can vary from person to person and may vary depending on how extensive the surgery is. Therefore, it is important to talk to your doctor to determine the best time for revision nose surgery.
Is Revision Nose Surgery Dangerous?
Revision nose surgery, like any surgical procedure, can involve some risks. However, if a previous surgery is to be revised, the risks are less because the surgeon usually has more information. For example, during revision surgery, the surgeon can better understand why the previous surgery failed and how it can be corrected.
However, like any surgical procedure, there are some risks in revision nose surgery. These risks may include bleeding, infection, intranasal injuries, problems with anesthesia, blockage of intranasal air passage or increased intranasal pressure. Therefore, it is important to have extensive knowledge of surgical procedures and to communicate well with your surgeon.
3rd Time Rhinoplasty?
It may be possible to have a 3rd time rhinoplasty, but this is a very rare condition. A third operation is considered due to the inadequate results of the previous operations or due to new problems arising after the operation. However, third-time surgeries can often be more difficult and risky because the elasticity of the skin and tissues has decreased.
In addition, although the results obtained after two operations are insufficient, it is difficult to guarantee that the results obtained after the third operation will be at the desired level. Therefore, it is important to communicate well with your surgeon and carefully consider all options before considering a third time rhinoplasty.
What is Revision Nose Tip Surgery?
Revision nasal tip surgery means re-doing a previous nasal tip surgery. This surgery can be performed to correct the results obtained in the previous surgery or to correct new problems that occur after the surgery.
Revision nose tip surgery is scheduled after an evaluation by the surgeon to understand why the previous surgery failed and how it can be corrected. After this evaluation, the surgeon determines which techniques will be used and what kind of result will be obtained.
Revision nasal tip surgery is usually performed using endoscopic techniques. These techniques do not require opening the nasal tissues or reshaping the nasal tip. This shortens the operation time and speeds up the recovery time.
Revision nose tip surgery, like any surgical procedure, may involve some risks. The more information the surgeon has, the lower the risks. Therefore, a surgeon who is an expert in the field of revision nose tip surgery prevents possible problems.
Risks may include bleeding, infection, intranasal injuries, problems with anesthesia, blockage of intranasal air passage or increased intranasal pressure. Therefore, it is important to have extensive knowledge of surgical procedures and to communicate well with your surgeon.

What is the Recovery Process of Revision Rhinoplasty?
The recovery period of revision nose surgery may be slightly longer than the recovery period of a previous surgery. After the surgery, tampons or a patch may be used in the nose and swelling and bruises may occur in the nose. These swelling and bruises will subside in a few days, but it may take several weeks to completely disappear.
Swelling and bruises may also occur on the skin around the nose. These swelling and bruises will subside in a few days, but it may take several weeks to completely disappear.
Patients can usually return home within a few days after surgery, but should follow instructions such as activity restrictions and avoidance of nose area.
On average, 4-6 weeks may be required for full recovery. This time can vary from person to person and may vary depending on how extensive the surgery is.
In addition, you can use painkillers or other medications given by your doctor for pain or discomfort that may occur after surgery.
It is important to communicate with your doctor in your post-operative views and to have your follow-ups done on time.
