Why Patients Need Revision Rhinoplasties?

There are three main reasons why a patient will want further nasal surgery. First, he or she may be unhappy with the appearance of the nose. This is the most common problem, since most people undergo rhinoplasty in the first place to change the nasal appearance without looking “so done”. Second, the patient may be experiencing nasal obstruction after surgery. Sometimes the obstruction was present before the first surgery, and did not improve enough. Other times, obstruction can be caused by surgery. Third, implant rejection, swelling, infection, nasal deformation and other complications have occurred after the first nasal operation.
