Secondary rhinoplasty is performed to correct previous surgeries that had previously undergone rhinoplasty surgery but were not successful in shape and function. Patients apply with problems such as not being able to breathe as they are more important than aesthetic appearance.
There are several reasons why the operations are not successful. The reason for revision may be caused by the doctor, or it can be some reasons that out of both of their hands. Patients who are applying to us for secondary rhinoplasty usually have their first surgery in another clinic, so we cannot know about the first surgery. We decide on our examination.
The structure of the cartilages may be disrupted, the sequance may be impaired or the number may be decreased. In addition, cartilages may be depleted for the second operation.
