What to expect from revision rhinoplasty
Every revision rhinoplasty is different. The complexity of the surgery varies between patients. Most revision rhinoplasty surgeries take from 3 – 5 hours. The nose surgery is performed with either a closed or open approach. Usually, if you are only undergoing a few tweaks and changes, then a closed approach is used. If Dr. Gene needs additional cartilage harvested from your ears or ribs, then an open approach is used.
Following all surgical corrections, Dr. Gene will use splints or nasal packing to keep everything in place as you recover.
