The documented revision rate for rhinoplasty is roughly 8 to 15 percent. You may feel that seems fairly significant. The reality is, it's most likely even higher compared to what is documented. Why is this true? It is possible to do most any change to the nose and have it appear better for a little while following surgery. However, rhinoplasty issues start to harvest after several months or years following operation. That is because the healing skin wraps down on the new structure that was shaved down over a number of months to show the final outcome. This continuous contraction of the skin is going to expose irregularities within the body and will gradually trigger collapse of the nose if it isn't properly supported. Thus, we must plan adjustments during operation not predicated on just the way that your nose looks at the present time at the operating space, but how we believe it'll cure down the road. And that is no simple endeavor, yet a skilled cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Kassir can easily accomplish this.

Individuals might have had one or even up to 5 preceding operations. At this time, you're likely wondering, why on earth should someone have 3 or 4 or even 5 surgeries on their nose? Well, the solution is that Rhinoplasty is potentially the toughest and most unforgiving process of any optional surgery. Novices and experts share this opinion. It has to do with all the technical difficulties of this process and on occasion the various stages of recovery. In the end, we're attempting to create quite special alterations to some very complicated anatomical structure which has an extremely distinctive aesthetic look, while improving its own breathing function. Sometime operation in different regions is a matter of inches, so Rhinoplasty is a game of millimeters. Each measure in Rhinoplasty depends upon and affects the measure before and afterwards, and affects the final outcome.
Therefore, why do some surgeons appear to continue to perform poor nose jobs? They probably believe they are doing fantastic work. They just might not be visiting their patients long enough post-op to observe a few of the issues. If we save up to visit a fantastic restaurant and experience a bad meal, many people probably would not provide revisit to dine with that chef. Our hope is eroded. The exact same goes for Rhinoplasty, although it's far more than a poor meal. The sour flavor remains with you indefinitely. So instead of face their original surgeons, so many individuals proceed to somebody else that they hope will repair the issue. This is the case as many patients come to Dr. Kassir for their revision rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty was initially a cosmetic operation to restore function into the nose or maybe to make a normalcy for the individual following injury. Regarding modernizing methods for decorative applications, at 1845 Joseph Dieffenbach, MD, set the basis for a totally different perspective and strategy to the rhinoplasty operation. He introduced outside incisions into the rhinoplasty surgery. Whereas this process was for renovation — it's currently enormously used for improving the appearance. Obviously all of us realize surgeons aren't created equally.

How many revision rhinoplasties is too many?
