- Rhinoplasty can be performed on people with a previous nose surgery,
but it is important for the patient to inform the surgeon about their medical history before the surgery. A previous nose surgery can affect the nasal anatomy and function, which can impact the outcome of the surgery.
- It is important for the patient to have fully recovered from the previous surgery before undergoing rhinoplasty. The surgeon will evaluate the type of previous surgery, the time since the surgery happened, and any complications that may have occurred.
- Revision rhinoplasty, also known as secondary rhinoplasty, is a surgery that corrects or improves the outcome of a previous nose surgery. This type of surgery is more complex than primary rhinoplasty and may require more time and expertise.
- The surgeon will also take into account the patient’s specific previous surgery when planning the surgery and may use special techniques to minimise the risk of complications. Postoperative care and follow-up will also be tailored to the patient’s specific needs.
