Rhinoplasty is commonly called a nose job. More people than you might think are harboring desires to get their nose corrected. Commonly, people seek a first nose job to make their nose smaller, fix a deviated septum, correct bumps, fix funny angles, and more. The majority of people are satisfied with their new nose. However, some patients are unhappy with the results and seek a rhinoplasty revision to get the look desired.
Unhappy With Appearance
Surprisingly, a number of patients go under the knife several times to correct a previous rhinoplasty procedure that did not improve their appearance. Perhaps, the procedure did not produce the expected results. Often, people have an idea about the results. They want a nose that looks like their favorite celebrity or another popular figure. Even the best surgeon in the world might have difficulty producing those ideal goals.
Minor Revisions Required
Certainly, rhinoplasty is a very complicated procedure. It takes a highly skilled plastic surgeon to perform this very involved operation. Certainly, strict detail is involved every step of the way. Still, it might take two or three procedures to correct minor problems that require extra attention to get the desired results. For example, a nose that is angled incorrectly or oddly shaped.
A number of people anticipate good results after the surgery. However, healing might complicate matters. For example, the patient discovers that their nose did not heal properly and they are having nasal issues. Many patients complain that bumps show up on their nose several months later. This leads to dissatisfaction with the first rhinoplasty. A revision is necessary to correct the problem.
One surprising fact is that the nose will continue to change after the first nose surgery. Certainly, the majority of patients are not aware of this fact. The patient might become very dissatisfied with the changes. Therefore, the only alternative is to seek another rhinoplasty to achieve the results desired.
The real deal is that a growing number of patients walk into a plastic surgeon’s office with unrealistic expectations. Many are also addicted to plastic surgery. The problem is that it is very difficult to achieve their unrealistic goals with the first surgery.
