Revision Rhinoplasty Reviews
"Although I never intended to have cosmetic surgery on my nose, it became a necessity after breaking it and not having it repaired correctly. I was so amazed at Dr. White's attention to detail and his passion and commitment to what he does. If only more medical doctors would have those characteristics. The results of the surgery have amazed me. My nose not only looks back to normal --- but it looks much better than ever before. The family nose is not really on my face anymore. It has improved my self esteem about my looks which I never expected to happen. Truly a success story! The time that Dr. White took in surgery demonstrates that he did everything very precisely and to the best of his ability with no time constraints. I am extremely pleased with the results and would and do recommend people to him who are seeking a plastic surgeon. The other thing that amazed me about Dr. White was his bedside manner. He was in the hospital room not too long after surgery and was getting me up and walking with me down the hall in the hospital. What doctor would do that? None that I know of --- except Dr. White! Thank you!"- M. P. / Office Visit / Jun 02, 2011
"Dr. Steven White...what can I say? I love the man. There is no doctor I have ever trusted more than this one. He is God's hands on this Earth. I had one other procedure with Dr. White in 2015. I knew what to expect in terms of the process and the lead-up to surgery. This one was no less excellent. The office team and Dr. White had me thoroughly prepared. They are compassionate, informative and just plain fun to be around and to talk with. How many Doctor's offices can you say this about? This was a revision rhinoplasty/septoplasty. Dr. White had to do extra work on me because of my situation and nasal scar tissue/trauma from the past. He was energized by the challenge. That was clear. More importantly, he successfully dealt with the challenge and achieved everything I could hope for. The nose is such a prominent feature on the face. This is why the careful screening and selection of a Doctor for this type of procedure is so critical. I can save you a lot of time. Choose this one. Training? He has certification as an ENT (Ear Nose Throat) specialist and of course as a plastic surgeon. The skills are there. He would not stop until he made my nose the best my body would let it be. The drive is there. He checked on me repeatedly and showed such compassion for me. The empathy is there. Side note: he showed this kind of compassion and regard for other personnel like nurses and auxiliary staff. Most exemplary and rare in the field of medicine and life in general. I don't know what else I could ask for in a Doctor. He is a consummate professional. Downside One: the cost. He isn't inexpensive but I promise you that you will get what you pay for. Downside Two: if you aren't ready to be a compliant patient in terms of instructions, then you will find Dr. White insistent. My advice: just trust and comply then watch the magic ensue. One last reason to choose Dr. White especially for rhinoplasty/septoplasty: it's his favorite procedure to perform. The results are amazing and as Dr. White says, the clean lines and nasal features reduce turbulence on the face. An observer is able to see your face and it just flows. I am thrilled by the results and clearly I would recommend him to anyone. P.S. Please ask Dr. White to show you my before and after pictures. He will know which one I am. You will be amazed."- Google User / Google / Jan 02, 2017
"Septoplasty: I can breath now and my nose is picture perfect. - I had a car accident when I was 15, it left me with a crushed nose and a deviated septum. Dr White was very upfront could not be more personable. I can breath now and my nose is picture perfect. Dr White has an amazing staff, the before and after care and follow up are stellar!"- W. / RealSelf / Jun 27, 2019
Revision Rhinoplasty Surgical Technique
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.
Revision Rhinoplasty During/After 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.
Revision Rhinoplasty Expected Cost
Dr. White will be able to discuss more accurate price estimates during the initial consultation, as well as financing and health insurance coverage.
