Revision Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is perhaps the most challenging of all plastic surgery procedures. Even in the best of hands, external deformities or breathing difficulties may occur after rhinoplasty. This is due to the complicated anatomy of the nose and the 'vagaries of healing'. Many patiets come to Dr. Most for his expertise in this area. A brief overview is here.

In such cases, when a second surgical procedure is undertaken, the experience of the surgeon becomes even more important. Dr. Most, as Chief of the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Washington, developed a significant regional referall practice for revision rhinoplasty. Now performing rhinoplasty in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dr. Most has once again developed a regional practice in revision rhinoplasty. His patients have come from all over the West Coast, and from as far away as New York or overseas. Many have observed his lectures on rhinoplasty and other topics in facial plastic surgery on the Research Channel.

If you have had a rhinoplasty, and have problems with breathing or the external shape of your nose, a consultation with Dr. Most may help determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.

The Procedure

The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are primarily internal, though a small external incision is sometimes used. The bone and cartilage of the nose is reshaped, and care is taken to preserve the breathing function of the nose. Dr. Most is often able to actually improve nasal breathing for his patients.

Patients may expect 5-7 days of swelling in the nose. Dr. Most uses absorbable sutures that do not need to be removed, and uses advanced techniques that allow him to avoid packing in most cases.
