Revision Rhinoplasty in Towson, MD
Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Ira D. Papel proudly serves revision rhinoplasty patients from Annapolis, MD, as well as the surrounding areas in Maryland. The procedure can change the way you perceive yourself, allowing you to gain the confidence you need.
What is this Procedure?
This procedure involves the correction of any past rhinoplasty surgeries you might have had. Some patients find their previous rhinoplasty surgeries did not produce the results they desire, or subsequent injuries have once again left them with an unshapely nose.
Benefits of the Procedure
Having revision surgery can be beneficial by providing you with the results you desire. Your past surgery may not have produced desirable results because it was performed using outdated technology or completed by an unskilled surgeon. Dr. Papel can correct your problems for you so that you feel better about your appearance.
How is it Performed?
The surgeon performing revision rhinoplasty will begin the procedure by making incisions inside the nose or in the area between the nostrils. The procedure may require the addition of tissue, grafted from elsewhere on the body, or the removal of tissue damaged from the original operation. Usually performed on an outpatient basis, revision rhinoplasty may require up to four hours to complete, with an additional hour needed for recovery. The patient will be asked to avoid strenuous activities for about two weeks and contact sports for at least six weeks after the surgery.
