I often see patients with rhinoplasties poorly performed; then you have to intervene again. Secondary rhinoplasty is necessary when optimal results have not been achieved with a first intervention, either from an aesthetic or functional point of view.
Outpatient or short stay without hospitalization
2 to 3 days to resume normal activities. (Variable according to evaluation)
aquaplast splint for a week
Correct a bad result of a previous surgery: deviated nose, irregularities on the back, excessively wide tip, asymmetries in the nasal wings, functional alterations, deviation of the septum, perforation of the nasal septum, problems with the turbinates, excessive or asymmetrical resection of the first surgery, or a nose that shows that "it is operated" (in English: "surgical look").
Rhinoplasty is one of the most requested surgeries in Mexico and the world; Due to this, its practice has been extended many times by professionals with little experience who offer low costs. The result is that there are many patients with poor results from small problems such as asymmetries in the tip, in the back or even major disasters such as complete loss of function or lateralization of the nasal pyramid, which have moved the bones through the fractures , or folds in the cartilage, or even deformities due to large resections in cases of malpractice.
I have extensive experience and optimal results in both first intention rhinoplasty and secondary rhinoplasty. Through the open surgery technique, we can visualize all the nasal structure from the inside and correct any imperfection very precisely.
Contrary to what some people think, open rhinoplasty is not more aggressive than closed rhinoplasty, but it is much more precise. When opening we have visibility over all the structures, it does not leave more scars nor is the postoperative period longer. Swelling is minimal as is bruising. The nasal splint is only used for one week. Normally no nasal plugs are left.
