Revision Rhinoplasty Discussed at ASAPS Annual Meeting

While the majority of rhinoplasty procedures performed by plastic surgeons are successful, some patients require a second operation to correct complications or unsatisfying results. The intricate nature of this procedure, commonly known as revision rhinoplasty, was a topic of discussion last weekend during the annual meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

During the meeting, a panel of plastic surgeons held two discussions on the topic, covering aspects such as:

  • Correcting a short or crooked nose
  • Using grafts or sutures to shape the nasal tip
  • Alternative treatment methods
  • Treating nasal, nostril and alar base deformities
  • Correction of suboptimal rhinoplasty results
