Many patients need revision to their original rhinoplasty. Even though technology and methods work well for many the first time, if desired results are not obtained, the revision operations might be necessary. Traditional rhinoplasty surgery surgery fixes deformities that hinder the correct functioning of the nasal cavity and it is an invasive surgery which changes the basic structure of the nose and this might lead to more complications and a longer healing period. However, our new approach in revision operations using autologous cell enriched fat transfer to required areas with irregularities, patients experience less surgical trauma, less change in the basic structures of the nose, shorter and more comfortable healing period with more successful results.
“In rhinoplasty, the age and gender of the patient determines the operation. Since these two matters are ignored, my patients apply to me for Revision Rhinoplasty”
What is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision Rhinoplasty is an operation that corrects unsightly and unsatisfactory results or nose deformed due to a faulty prior procedure. Many patients need revision to their original rhinoplasty because desired results were not achieved. We always hear the same statements from patients who have chosen Doctor B for Revision Rhinoplasty. Most common complaint is that their nose does not suit their face, it does not belong to them or the operation is too obvious.
As Doctor B says, the most important matter here is the gender of the patient. If you design the same nose for all the patients, you cannot achieve natural results. Men anatomically have a more stern facial expression than women. Their foreheads are more angular than women.
Everybody experiences a slight drooping on their nose due to gravity in time. If you design a nose without considering your patient’s age and gender, your result will turns out to be differin to rest of the face. In fact, sometimes we need to make bone or cartilage supplements from other parts of the body for the patients who have serious problems because their nose cartilage or bone was excessively smoothened. Because of the previous nose surgery, collapse and skin problems are resolved permanently during, Revision Rhinoplasty with stem cell enriched fat injection therefore skin quality is refreshed due to the advantages of stem cells.
Who is a good candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty?
Those who had rhinoplasty before and feel unsatisfied, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose or you are having trouble breathing after rhinoplasty. İf the initial surgery does not meet your expectations you may be a good candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty.
Examination and Consultation
Consultation begins with a pre-interview with Doctor B. Physical examination of the nose, face and health related problems are identified and evaluated. During your consultation Doctor B answers all your questions, and listens and understands your expectations and makes the planning based on your desires. After your measurement and evaluation, your photographs are taken for medical archive.
Revision Rhinoplasty is much more difficult than regular rhinoplasty and it requires expertise. Not every surgeon can perform Revision Rhinoplasty. First of all, the patient is upset and full of dissappointment. When we examine the reason of the mistake, we generally observe the miscommunication between patient and surgeon. Therefore, communication has always been my primary goal "
During Revision Rhinoplasty
The Revision Rhinoplasty operation begins after applying the preferred anesthesia type. The aim here is to solve the problems discussed during your consultation. Revision Rhinoplasty is typically a much more complex and difficult operation because septal cartilage is touched and there is no cartilage tissue left to reshape. In this case, Doctor B takes the cartilage from elsewhere from the body and re-shapes the nose. Doctor B’s experiences on Revision Rhinoplasty allowed him to achieve many positive results and patient satisfaction. Those who had rhinoplasty before, intranasal cartilages are often used and their places are changed to reshape the nose. If it is untouched, during Revision Rhinoplasty the nose is reshaped by using the septal nasal cartilage.
Doctor B uses Cihantimur Fat Transplant method to solve the problems such as nose collapse or lack of fatty tissue. Stem cells enriched fat injection obtained from the patient’s own fat cell with Cihantimur Fat Transplant method, enriched with stem cell, this fat works as a filling and provides the patient with a lifelong comfort.
