Before and After Photos
Full Rhinoplasty Revision
Revision rhinoplasty can be a complex surgery, so Dr. White usually performs it with an open approach so he can visualize and reach all areas of the nasal structure. The skin is separated from the cartilage and bone that make up the support structure of the nose. Dr. White will correct the problems from the original rhinoplasty and then shape the nose to a normal structure. If needed, Dr. White may remove cartilage or bone from another part of the patient’s body to supplement the structure and framework of the nose.
Many patients are mostly satisfied with their rhinoplasty, but want a small imperfection, such as a bump, fixed. Dr. White also performs touch-up revision rhinoplasty for patients who find the results of their rhinoplasty have adjusted over time. Dr. White continues to work with his patients until they are completely satisfied with their surgery.
Dr. White performs revision rhinoplasty surgery in an accredited surgical facility with the patient under local or general anesthesia. The surgery may be less than 1 hour for minor touch-ups or longer for a complete reconstruction. Dr. White will place the nose in a splint after the surgery to keep the bones and cartilage in place during healing. Patients will have swelling and bruising around their nose and eyes for 1 – 2 weeks after the surgery.
Dr. White will be able to discuss more accurate price estimates during the initial consultation, as well as financing and health insurance coverage.

Revision rhinoplasty ensures that every patient has the nose they desire, even after a less than perfect original nose surgery. Dr. White excels at minor rhinoplasty revisions as well as major reconstructions. Patients who are unhappy with their rhinoplasty should consider trusting Dr. White, a specialist in plastic surgery as well as otolaryngology surgery, for revision perfection.
