Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs revision rhinoplasty for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.
Cosmetic surgery has become more popular in recent years, putting many people at risk for poor quality outcomes. Rhinoplasties, or nose jobs, are one of the most popular procedures. If you have undergone a rhinoplasty, and are not happy with the results, you may feel like you made a poor decision. You may not like the shape of your new nose, or you may be experiencing breathing problems as a result of your surgery. Revision rhinoplasty by Dr. Majmundar, a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, can correct any problems you have as a result of your rhinoplasty.
Is a Revision Rhinoplasty Right for You?
You may be a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty if you have undergone a previous rhinoplasty procedure, and are unhappy with the outcome of your procedure. Revision rhinoplasty improves your breathing after a primary rhinoplasty, and corrects any defects in your nose that resulted from a previous procedure. You should wait at least ten to twelve months after your initial rhinoplasty before deciding to have revision rhinoplasty by Dr. Majmundar. This allows your nose to fully heal before undergoing a revision rhinoplasty.
Making the Decision for Revision Rhinoplasty
Your nose is the most prominent feature of your face. When you are considering revision rhinoplasty, you should choose a qualified, experienced facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Majmundar is double board certified in otolaryngology – head neck surgery, as well as facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. His experience and education means that he provides you with the highest quality care. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Majmundar examines your nose and face to determine the best treatment plan. He also discusses the outcomes of the procedure so that you have realistic expectations of your revision rhinoplasty. We perform all of our surgeries in accredited outpatient surgery centers, and we only use board certified MD anesthesiologists for your safety.
Understanding the Surgery
Revision rhinoplasty is a much more extensive procedure than your first rhinoplasty. In many cases, Dr. Majmundar has to reconstruct your nose to make the necessary corrections. This is especially difficult if too much tissue was removed during your original procedure. The surgical procedure depends on your individual case. Dr. Majmundar may need to perform only minor contouring, but most cases require extensive correction. Because tissue was removed during your original rhinoplasty, Dr. Majmundar uses bone and tissue grafts for the revision rhinoplasty.
What to Expect After the Surgery
The initial healing period for your revision rhinoplasty is five to seven days. You may notice bruising and swelling during this time. Seven to ten days after your procedure, the bruising and swelling subsides and you may feel more comfortable going out in public. Your activities should be limited for the first fourteen days after your revision rhinoplasty. You will have mild swelling for several months, and complete healing can take up to one year or more.
