Revision Rhinoplasty Results
By dsherris on April 19, 2018
Patients may choose to undergo a secondary, or revision, rhinoplasty for a number of reasons. They may feel that the previous surgeon did not listen to their concerns or achieve the results they desired. Or they may have experienced complications after surgery, such as the development of excess scar tissue. In some cases, patients sustain a nose injury that results in the need for additional treatment.
At The Clinic of Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. David Sherris specializes in revision rhinoplasty, one of the more technically advanced procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Read on to view the revision rhinoplasty results that Dr. Sherris has achieved for our patients, and then contact our Buffalo, NY practice to schedule your revision rhinoplasty consultation at our practice.

Improving Your Revision Rhinoplasty Results
When it comes to revision rhinoplasty, there are a number of things that patients can do to improve the results of surgery.
First, patients should choose a skilled surgeon to perform revision rhinoplasty. The revision procedure tends to be more complex than primary rhinoplasty. Factors such as scar tissue and graft materials make the procedure more complicated. Surgeons may need to correct problems from the previous surgery, and produce a result that patients are satisfied with.
Dr. Sherris specializes in advanced revision rhinoplasty and is a recognized expert in the field. He is published in revision rhinoplasty techniques, and teaches other physicians how to perform the procedure.
In addition to choosing a skilled surgeon, patients should follow aftercare instructions to reduce the risk of complications. Patients should avoid touching the nose, not smoke, and prevent any type of nasal injury during the healing period to prevent problems such as infection and poor wound healing.
Dr. Sherris will provide you with a comprehensive list of post-surgical instructions following your revision rhinoplasty procedure.
When Are Final Results Visible?
Patients should expect to take at least one to two weeks off of work to recover after revision rhinoplasty. While most side effects dissipate for the most part within two to three weeks, the full results of surgery take months. Noses look great right after surgery as they have been cosmetically changed. Most of the swelling will subside within the first 3 months but complete healing takes a full year from surgery. Residual swelling will take up to a year to resolve.
