Undergoing rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, can be a life-changing experience.

Call now to book a consultation in Boston, MA, and learn about this innovative procedure. We strive to provide personalized care so you feel comfortable and confident.

Understanding revision rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty involves reshaping the nose to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance or correcting structural issues to improve breathing. But before deciding to undergo a second surgery, patients should understand how the procedure works and what results to expect. During an assessment, Dr. DeRosa will examine your nose, discuss your desired outcomes, and provide an honest opinion about whether a second procedure is necessary.

How is revision surgery performed?

During revision surgery, Dr. DeRosa will make open or closed incisions to access the underlying structures. We then reshape the bones and/or cartilage to create a more balanced appearance or address breathing difficulties. Though this is an outpatient procedure, it is considered more complex compared to primary rhinoplasty. This is why it's important to find a trained female plastic surgeon in Boston, MA. Our staff can answer questions and provide support throughout the process.

Here are some common reasons why revision rhinoplasty may be necessary:

  • Imbalance in the facial features or a lack of symmetry
  • A nose that appears too large, small, wide, or narrow for your features
  • The tip of the nose seems droopy, round, or upturned
  • The nostrils are too big or uneven in size
  • Difficulty in breathing through the nose
  • Scarring or other complications from the initial procedure

When to expect results from revision rhinoplasty

Recovery from revision rhinoplasty depends on factors such as how well you follow post-operative instructions and the extent of your surgery. Side effects may include swelling, bruising, and minor discomfort. Dr. DeRosa will provide helpful tips on how to reduce the impact of these issues and help you heal faster. Though you may not see the full outcomes until after several weeks or months, the results are typically long-lasting.

What if I'm still unhappy with the results?

We understand some people have a heightened level of anxiety before revision surgery. At The DeRosa Center, we strive to ensure you are satisfied with your results. If you are still unhappy after the revision rhinoplasty, Dr. DeRosa will review your case to determine how to move forward. Rest assured that you're in safe hands, and we do everything in our power to ensure you look and feel your best.
