Who is a Good Candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty?
As mentioned, the ideal candidate for revision rhinoplasty is someone who has already undergone a primary rhinoplasty but is dissatisfied with the results. Having realistic expectations and understanding that revision rhinoplasty is not a miracle cure is essential.
Patients who have experienced trauma to the nose, such as a sports injury or car accident, may also be good candidates for revision rhinoplasty.
Finally, patients who have had the most success with the procedure are typically in good overall health and do not have any underlying medical conditions that could interfere with the healing process. Patients who smoke or use nicotine products are not good candidates for revision rhinoplasty, as smoking can increase the risk of complications and delay the healing process.
