A revision rhinoplasty is not a procedure that most patients are excited to have done, but it is important to know that it is an option. Unfortunately, some patients end up opting for a cheaper surgery or are misled by an inexperienced surgeon. When patients are disappointed in the results from a primary rhinoplasty, they often end up having to have a revision rhinoplasty procedure in order to correct any mistakes. Dr. Kevin Sadati is one of the most recommended revision physicians in Orange County, he is known as the surgeon who won’t turn a revision patient away because of its complexity.
Dr. Sadati has been performing this complex procedure for the last decade in his Newport Beach practice, and patients are often thrilled with their results. If you think that you might require a revision procedure, it is important to get the process started as soon as possible. The first step is setting up a free consultation appointment with Dr. Sadati. This appointment gives you an opportunity to meet with the surgeon and decide if this is a procedure you are interested in having done. At the same time, Dr. Sadati is able to perform a physical and mental exam as well as review the issues with the primary rhinoplasty procedure. Patients love the fact that Dr. Sadati has a state-of-the-art computer imaging available as they are able to visualize what they will look like after their surgery is complete.
Every revision procedure is different, some being relatively easy to complete while others being quite complex, involving cartilage grafting. Surgery time can take anywhere from one hour to three hours, depending on the severity of the case and what is involved in the procedure. The reason it varies so much is that every primary rhinoplasty is different, and each primary procedure might have different issues that have arrived as a result of the first surgery. Most revision patients will have to be placed under general anesthesia.
The recovery time for this procedure typically takes a little bit longer, and patients should be expecting more bruising and swelling than after their primary procedure. All contact sports and physical activities should be avoided for at least several months as the nose is very fragile and sensitive after a revision procedure. The hard work and effort will be worth it in the end when you have the nose you wanted in the first place.
