Rhinoplasty procedures may require further intervention in some cases. The problems that may occur either during the operation or in the healing process may result in certain disruptions for patients. In similar cases, your consultation with your doctor will be of great importance. Your doctor may either recommend a new operation or make suggestions to eliminate such problems through processes such as filling. However, a re-intervention should be planned after the first year of operation.

What are the fundamentals of Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty is performed only when necessary. The postoperative recovery period varies depending on the procedure applied. A revision rhinoplasty may be performed either under general anesthesia or under local anesthesia.
In revision surgeries, an ear or rib cartilage may be required to support the nose depending on the amount of cartilage tissue left in the previous surgery. In minor revisions, there is little risk of pain or bruising. The mild pain that may occur in the post-operative period may be relieved using painkillers.
Ankara is one of the cities where many patients seek for revision rhinoplasty. Thanks to his expertise and experience, Surgeon Dr. Ali Kavuzlu performs revision procedures in a professional manner. Following the revision procedure, the splint is removed after 1 week. If any, the sutures may also be removed after 1 week. The post-operative bruises may disappear after an average of ten days whereas the swelling of tissues would completely disappear between 6 and 12 months.
Depending on the previous surgical procedure, such problems as lymph flow, blood build-up and skin recovery would heal more difficultly in revision surgery. Therefore, the decision should be given carefully in rhinoplasty.
How Long Does a Rhinoplasty Take?
The rhinoplasty procedures usually take 2 to 3 hours, which varies depending on the technique and application used. A revision rhinoplasty, however, may take from 30 minutes to 4 hours depending on the procedure applied.
