Revision Rhinoplasty FAQ's

How soon after rhinoplasty surgery can I have a revision?

Every circumstance and patient is different, but typically we wait one year after your most recent rhinoplasty surgery before another nasal procedure is done. It is best to wait until swelling has resolved and the appearance of the nose is done changing.

Do I need a revision if I break my nose after rhinoplasty surgery?

You do not necessarily need a revision if you break your nose after rhinoplasty surgery. Every patient and situation is different, but some patients may require revision surgery if the trauma to the nose is severe enough.

Is the recovery similar after a revision rhinoplasty to that of primary rhinoplasty surgery?

In general, the recovery for nasal surgery whether it's for the first time or a revision is similar, but the swelling and bruising may be slightly worse after revision rhinoplasty surgery and may take longer to resolve as the nose recovers from a second procedure.

I've heard that injections help after rhinoplasty surgery, what are they?

Sometimes your doctor will inject the nose with a corticosteroid, such as Kenalog, in order to help touch up minor areas or reduce areas of persistent swelling after rhinoplasty. If you are interested in a revision Rhinoplasty procedure, contact our office for a consultation. Dr Quatela sees patients from all over the U.S., including nearby cities such as Buffalo and Syracuse.
