Revision Rhinoplasty FAQ's

What is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty refers to a corrective surgery needed after a patient’s first nose procedure. It can be used to improve the appearance or function of the nose when the initial procedure didn’t produce the desired results.

When is a Revision Rhinoplasty Necessary?

If you weren’t satisfied with the results of your first nose job or the procedure was botched, you might be a candidate for revision rhinoplasty. Dr. Gary Wiesman will correct the issues that occurred from the previous procedure, such as an uneven tip, scarring, or failure of the tissue healing correctly. It’s not uncommon for the second rhinoplasty to be needed to resolve functional problems as well, such as an inability to breathe through the nose.

Why is Revision Rhinoplasty More Difficult to Perform?

If you need revision rhinoplasty, it’s essential you choose a qualified facial plastic surgeon because the procedure is more complex than your initial treatment. For example, the first procedure may have removed too much cartilage or bone. Dr. Gary Wiesman is double board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology . His advanced education provides patients with a higher level of expertise and qualifies him to provide the specialized care that a revision rhinoplasty requires.

How Much Does Revision Rhinoplasty Cost?

There isn’t a set fee for the procedure because the cost is based on several factors, including the extent of the procedure and your individual treatment plan. That is why Dr. Gary Wiesman offers FREE Cosmetic Consultations for new cosmetic patients.

Does Insurance Cover Revision Rhinoplasty?

You cannot use your insurance if the procedure is only necessary for aesthetic purposes; however, if there are functional issues, insurance may pay a portion of the cost. You’ll need to submit the necessary documentation to your insurance provider to maximize your policy to reduce any out-of-pocket expense.
