Revision rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as secondary rhinoplasty or revision nose surgery, is used to address unwanted results following a primary nose job. In some instances, revision rhinoplasty is performed to repair aesthetic and/or functional problems of the nose that arise following initial rhinoplasty surgery. Or, revision rhinoplasty is used to correct the shortcomings of a prior rhinoplasty procedure.
If a patient undergoes rhinoplasty surgery and is not satisfied with the results, revision rhinoplasty performed by an expert facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon is ideal. Thanks to revision rhinoplasty, a patient can correct problems that were not addressed in a primary rhinoplasty.

Revision Rhinoplasty Benefits
The benefits of revision rhinoplasty are similar to those associated with primary rhinoplasty surgery. Common revision rhinoplasty benefits include:
Rejuvenated Facial Appearance: Revision rhinoplasty is used to reshape the nose, resulting in a more youthful and balanced facial appearance.
Improved Breathing: Revision rhinoplasty is sometimes performed in combination with nasal obstruction surgery or a septoplasty to correct nasal obstructions that occur due to a prior nose surgery.
Enhanced Facial Symmetry: Revision rhinoplasty is used to correct a bulbous nasal tip, crooked nose, and other facial problems, leading to improved facial symmetry.
Increased Self-Confidence: Revision rhinoplasty revitalizes the appearance and shape of the nose, and as such, often provides a confidence-booster for patients who are self-conscious about their facial appearance.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Azizzadeh teaches patients about revision rhinoplasty, how the surgery is performed, and its benefits. Dr. Azizzadeh allocates time and resources to ensure patients understand all aspects of revision rhinoplasty and can make informed treatment decisions.
How Does a Primary Rhinoplasty Differ from a Revision Rhinoplasty?
Primary rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most-popular facial plastic surgeries. It is used to reshape the nose to improve the facial aesthetic. Or, primary nose surgery is used to treat a deviated septum, breathing problems, or other structural defects of the nose and restore the nasal function.
Comparatively, revision rhinoplasty is performed after a primary nose surgery fails to deliver the desired results. A revision nose job is similar to a primary rhinoplasty because it is used to address the facial aesthetic or correct structural problems associated with the nose. However, a revision rhinoplasty procedure is performed if an initial nose job does not help a patient achieve his or her treatment goals. Revision rhinoplasty often takes longer to perform than a traditional rhinoplasty procedure too.
Revision rhinoplasty is more complex than primary rhinoplasty. A revision rhinoplasty procedure requires a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who possesses a deep understanding of the nasal structure and advanced surgical techniques. Also, a revision rhinoplasty surgery should be performed by a facial plastic surgery expert who provides each patient with a personalized treatment plan.
Dr. Azizzadeh consistently ranks as one of the top revision rhinoplasty surgeons in California, thanks in part to his commitment to patient education. Dr. Azizzadeh is happy to explain the similarities and differences between revision rhinoplasty and primary nose job surgery. That way, Dr. Azizzadeh helps patients determine whether a revision nose job is the right treatment to help them achieve their facial plastic surgery goals.
What Are Dr. Azizzadeh's Revision Rhinoplasty Qualifications?
When it comes to revision rhinoplasty surgery, you should only trust your nose to an experienced Los Angeles-based facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Azizzadeh.
Because Dr. Azizzadeh is double board-certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and otolaryngology (head and neck surgery), he possesses an unparalleled in-depth knowledge of the underlying structures in the face and head that he applies to his revision rhinoplasty surgical techniques.
Furthermore, Dr. Azizzadeh will perform a revision nose job carefully and precisely, ensuring a patient can maintain the integrity of the nasal function as well as improve his or her facial appearance. He offers patients the skills and years of experience needed to deliver superior revision rhinoplasty results time and time again.
Am I a Candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty?
If a patient is unhappy with the cosmetic results of a nose job, revision rhinoplasty may provide this individual with a second chance to achieve his or her ideal facial appearance.
A primary rhinoplasty takes one to two years to fully heal, so often times the patient needs to be very patient and wait to see the final results of their surgery. Dr. Azizzadeh knows that this can be hard to do, but he makes sure to educate his patients on the importance of letting the nose heal before performing an additional surgery. When revision rhinoplasty is necessary, it can help correct the following issues:
Pinched nose deformity
Breathing issues / difficulty
Unnatural looking tip
Nasal tip bossae (reverse rhinoplasty)
Unbalanced nasal aesthetics
Unbalanced chin aesthetics
Moreover, if a past rhinoplasty damaged the nasal function, revision rhinoplasty offers a great opportunity to repair this issue. Dr. Azizzadeh understands what it takes to reconstruct the nose and restore the nasal function and always find this procedure very rewarding for the patients.
What Should You Expect During a Revision Rhinoplasty Consultation?
Finding a revision rhinoplasty surgeon who is honest and forthright is paramount. A revision nose job can be complicated and may not provide the patient with the exact results they envision if performed by an unqualified surgeon. But if a patient works with a skilled, experienced facial plastic surgeon, like Dr. Azizzadeh, he or she is will receive the support needed to make an informed revision rhinoplasty decision.
Dr. Azizzadeh strives to offer his patients a very comprehensive and dedicated revision rhinoplasty consultation. This meeting allows Dr. Azizzadeh to learn about each patient and address his or her revision nose surgery concerns. The consultation is mutually beneficial and enables Dr. Azizzadeh to understand a patient’s revision rhinoplasty goals and outline the steps an individual will need to take to accomplish these aspirations. Plus, Dr. Azizzadeh will dedicate sufficient time and resources to respond to a patient’s revision nose job queries and guarantees the individual will feel 100% comfortable with revision rhinoplasty by the end of the consultation.
Revision rhinoplasty should allow an individual to achieve balance between the bridge, nostrils and tip of the nose. During the consultation process, Dr. Azizzadeh will evaluate these factors in conjunction with an individual’s cheeks, chin, eyebrows, forehead and lips. By doing so, Dr. Azizzadeh can collaborate with a patient to find the best way to provide him or her with a natural-looking and functional nose.
Other factors that Dr. Azizzadeh will examine during a consultation include:
Upper portion of the nose (nasal bones)
Middle portion of the nose (cartilaginous network)
Tip of the nose (including nostrils)
Functional components of the nose, such as the septum, turbinates and nasal valves
Dr. Azizzadeh recommends a patient bring his or her medical records to their consultation. This information will enable Dr. Azizzadeh to understand an individual’s medical background and offer custom revision rhinoplasty recommendations.
How Does Dr. Azizzadeh Use 3D Imaging During the Consultation Process?
The Vectra 3D imaging system allows Dr. Azizzadeh to take 3D photographs of a patient’s face and use these images to understand how an individual will look before and after revision rhinoplasty.
With the Vectra system, Dr. Azizzadeh can capture all angles of an individual’s face. Then, he will be able to display images that highlight the expected outcome of revision rhinoplasty, enabling a patient to better understand how the procedure will impact his or her facial appearance.
Dr. Azzizadeh’s Approach to Revision Rhinoplasty
As a Harvard-trained, double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Azizzadeh takes an extremely detailed approach to revision rhinoplasty. Through his many years of experience, he believes there is no such thing as a standard revision nose surgery because every patient requires thorough consideration and examination of his or her unique circumstances. Dr. Azizzadeh carefully takes note of each individual issue in the nose, as well as how it interacts with other facial features. His approach is dynamic, integrating every area of his expertise for the best outcome.

You can trust that Dr. Azizzadeh will always have your best interests in mind, and provide you with his honest expert opinion on what is best and realistic for you.
What Is a Natural Looking Revision Rhinoplasty?
The key aspect to a natural looking revision rhinoplasty is really your anatomy. Dr. Azizzadeh believes ethnicity and gender play an important role to create a nose that really fits your face. It’s not about creating a nose that’s perfect, but creating a nose that’s perfect for your face.
Dr. Azizzadeh thoroughly examines your bone structure, lips, chin, neck, and the under eyes as each of these components needs to be in balance with the nose. Ultimately, he wants your eyes to be the focus of your face. When someone looks at you and their focus naturally goes to your eyes, that is the result of a natural revision rhinoplasty outcome. The key aspect is a nose that it creates the perfect balance between all features.
As a top-rated revision rhinoplasty surgeon in Los Angeles, Dr. Azizzadeh strives to help each secondary nose job patient achieve a natural-looking nose. Dr. Azizzadeh learns about a revision rhinoplasty patient and creates a custom treatment plan. He then works with a revision rhinoplasty patient to deliver the optimal results.

Dr. Azizzadeh offers instructions at the pre-operative appointment to help a revision rhinoplasty patient prepare for treatment. He helps a patient plan for the night before and morning of a revision rhinoplasty in Los Angeles. Dr. Azizzadeh also provides instructions for postoperative revision rhinoplasty care.
Some medications may cause a revision rhinoplasty patient to bleed more than normal during treatment. Therefore, Dr. Azizzadeh sometimes recommends revision rhinoplasty patients stop taking certain medications a few weeks before surgery.

What Does Revision Rhinoplasty Recovery Involve?
Revision rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure with a recovery period of one to two weeks. A patient may need to stay home from work for seven to 10 days after surgery, depending on the amount of bruising and swelling. The patient will have a splint on the nose, which will be removed one week later. Most patients will not have nasal packing after a revision rhinoplasty.
It also is important to note that revision rhinoplasty requires a long-term commitment and routine follow ups are critical components of your nose surgery. Since full results will appear within one to two years after surgery once all of the internal swelling has dissipated, Dr. Azizzadeh will continue to consult with a patient to ensure an individual’s progress remains on track.

FAQs About Revision Rhinoplasty
Can you fix a bad nose job?
Revision rhinoplasty helps an individual correct the results of a bad nose job. It may be performed for cosmetic or medical reasons, and studies indicate revision rhinoplasty is performed after approximately 5 percent to 15 percent of nose jobs.
How successful is a revision rhinoplasty procedure?
Like any surgery, a revision rhinoplasty offers no guarantees. However, revision rhinoplasty performed by an expert facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon like Dr. Azizzadeh can be successful.
Dr. Azizzadeh tailors a revision nose job to his patient, ensuring this individual can achieve his or her desired results. Plus, Dr. Azizzadeh offers comprehensive assistance following a revision rhinoplasty to guarantee a patient’s recovery stays on course.
How can I tell if I need a revision rhinoplasty?
Common reasons why an individual may undergo revision rhinoplasty surgery include:
An initial rhinoplasty does not deliver the desired results
Too much cartilage is removed during a nose job
Cartilage on the inside of a patient’s nose is bent or swollen following a nose surgery
Polyps form inside of a rhinoplasty patient’s nose form that interfere with his or her airflow
A patient’s nose was injured or damaged during a nose surgery
A patient’s nose did not heal correctly following a nose surgery
Revision rhinoplasty may be ideal for individuals who are dealing with cosmetic or functional issues after nose surgery. In some instances, patients request revision rhinoplasty to create facial harmony following a failed nose job. Or, in other instances, patients undergo revision rhinoplasty surgery to treat functional nasal issues that occur after a nose job.
Are there age requirements to undergo a revision rhinoplasty procedure?
Dr. Azizzadeh does not generally recommend nose surgery until an individual’s nose has fully grown. This typically occurs as early as 15 or 16 years old for girls and 16 or 17 years old for boys.
To determine if an individual is eligible for revision rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Azizzadeh meets with him or her and performs an evaluation. If Dr. Azizzadeh believes a secondary nose surgery can help a patient correct mistakes from a past nose job, he will perform a revision rhinoplasty.
Why do nose jobs fail?
Some of the most common reasons why nose jobs fail include:
Poor planning prior to treatment
Subpar incision placement
Excessive removal of cartilage and bone from the nasal bridge
Nasal tip cartilage damage
Inadequate or unnecessary use of skin grafts
Excessive removal of septal cartilage
A failed nose job is a devastating experience for both a patient and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. For a patient, a failed nose job delivers unwanted treatment results. Meanwhile, for a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, a failed nose job represents a missed opportunity to help a patient achieve a nose that matches his or her facial features.
What are the risks of revision rhinoplasty?
There is a low risk of complications associated with revision rhinoplasty. Common revision nose surgery complications include:
Adverse reaction to anesthesia
Temporary loss of sense of smell
Dr. Azizzadeh strives to help a patient make an informed treatment decision. As such, he educates patients about revision rhinoplasty, its benefits and its potential complications prior to treatment. Dr. Azizzadeh also crafts a custom treatment plan designed to help a patient minimize the risk of complications. With this plan in place, Dr. Azizzadeh and a patient can work together to achieve the optimal revision nose surgery results.
Can any plastic surgeon perform a rhinoplasty revision?
Revision rhinoplasty is a highly specialized procedure. Therefore, it is important to work with a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who possesses extensive knowledge of the nose, face and head.
Dr. Azizzadeh has dual certification in head and neck surgery and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. He takes a holistic approach to revision rhinoplasty procedures, and by doing so, helps patients address both cosmetic and functional nasal problems.
What type of anesthesia is used during a revision rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia.
Is a revision rhinoplasty surgery the same thing as a septoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty and septoplasty procedures are both nose surgeries, but there are many differences between the two. A revision rhinoplasty corrects the results of a prior nose job. On the other hand, a septoplasty treats a deviated septum, a problem that occurs when the bone and cartilage between the nostrils are displaced. During a septoplasty, the nasal septum is repositioned and straightened.
How much does a revision rhinoplasty cost?
The cost of a revision rhinoplasty surgery varies based on the surgeon performing the procedure, the extent of the surgery needed and other factors. Dr. Azizzadeh explains the costs associated with revision rhinoplasty before he performs the procedure.
Is a revision rhinoplasty more expensive than a primary rhinoplasty?
A revision nose job tends to be more expensive than a primary rhinoplasty. This is due to the fact that a revision nose job can require additional time and resources to complete in comparison to a primary nose surgery.
Is a revision rhinoplasty covered by my insurance?
A revision rhinoplasty procedure is not covered by insurance if it is performed for cosmetic reasons. If a revision rhinoplasty is required due to a broken nose or other nose trauma that occurred after a primary nose job, a patient’s insurer may cover a portion or all of the cost of treatment.
Is financing available for revision rhinoplasty surgery?
For patients who do not receive insurance coverage for a revision rhinoplasty,financing options are available. Dr. Azizzadeh is happy to discuss financing for a revision rhinoplasty during a patient consultation.
If I break my nose after a primary rhinoplasty, do I need a revision rhinoplasty?
For those who break their nose after undergoing rhinoplasty surgery, there is no guarantee they will need a revision rhinoplasty. Each person’s nose is different, and trauma affects the nose in different ways. If a person experiences severe trauma due to a broken nose, he or she may require a rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty to address this issue.
What are the signs of a bad nose job?
The ultimate goal of a rhinoplasty is to help a patient achieve a balanced, natural-looking facial appearance, with a nose that complements the eyes, cheeks and other facial features. Meanwhile, a bad nose job results in an unbalanced or unnatural-looking facial appearance defined by any of the following facial characteristics:
Low nasal bridge
Nasal tip appears as wide as the nasal bridge
Nostrils look too wide or too large
If a person undergoes a rhinoplasty surgery but experiences any of the aforementioned issues, consulting with Dr. Azizzadeh is key. Dr. Azizzadeh works closely with a patient to address problems caused by a previous rhinoplasty. He develops a personalized revision rhinoplasty treatment plan for each of his patients. Dr. Azizzadeh also monitors his patient’s progress after a revision rhinoplasty surgery to ensure his patient achieves the best results.
After a rhinoplasty, how long do I need to wait until I can get a revision rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty is tailored to a patient, and each patient heals at his or her own pace. Thus, the time required after rhinoplasty surgery before a patient can get a revision rhinoplasty varies.
Most surgeons recommend patients wait at least one year after rhinoplasty surgery, before they undergo a revision rhinoplasty.
Dr. Azizzadeh is happy to meet with a patient who is considering revision rhinoplasty surgery. He evaluates each patient to determine if now is a good time for a revision rhinoplasty procedure. If Dr. Azizzadeh believes revision rhinoplasty surgery can be safely performed, he offers a personalized treatment recommendation. Or, if Dr. Azizzadeh believes revision rhinoplasty is too risky, he may recommend waiting to perform the procedure at a later date.
How is a revision rhinoplasty performed?
Revision rhinoplasty is a very customized procedure, as the problem that is trying to be fixed is different for every patient. In general, during a revision rhinoplasty procedure, a patient first receives general anesthesia. Next, Dr. Azizzadeh makes incisions and separates the skin of the nose from underlying bone and cartilage. At this point, Dr. Azizzadeh may reposition cartilage, replace missing nasal structures in the nose or do whatever needs to be done to improve the form and function of the nose. Finally, Dr. Azizzadeh pulls the skin back down and closes the incisions.
How long does it take to complete a revision rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty surgery usually requires between one and two hours to complete. Before a revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Azizzadeh outlines all treatment stages. This helps a patient establish realistic expectations and plan accordingly based on the estimated time required to complete a revision rhinoplasty procedure.
Is the revision rhinoplasty recovery process the same as the recovery process following a primary nose surgery?
The recovery process for revision and primary rhinoplasties can be similar, but a patient may require additional time to recover after a revision nose job in comparison to a primary rhinoplasty. A patient may also experience swelling and bruising that lasts longer following a revision rhinoplasty in contrast to a primary nose job.
Is there anything I can do to speed up the revision rhinoplasty recovery process?
To recover from a revision rhinoplasty as quickly as possible, a patient should follow all post-surgery instructions from Dr. Azizzadeh. If a patient has concerns or questions about post-revision rhinoplasty surgery instructions, it is crucial to reach out to Dr. Azizzadeh for immediate support.
Will a revision rhinoplasty cause scars?
If Dr. Azizzadeh performs a closed revision nose surgery, the incisions are confined to the nose. In this instance, no visible scarring will appear following surgery.
Comparatively, if Dr. Azizzadeh conducts an open revision rhinoplasty procedure, minimal scarring may occur. During this procedure, Dr. Azizzadeh makes a small incision under the tip of the nose. This may result in a small scar that is virtually invisible.
Dr. Azizzadeh performs a full patient evaluation prior to a revision rhinoplasty procedure. He then recommends an open or closed procedure based on the patient, his or her treatment goals and other factors.
Additionally, Dr. Azizzadeh does everything possible to minimize the risk of revision rhinoplasty complications. He works diligently to make precise incisions and ensure each patient receives the best care. As such, Dr. Azizzadeh helps limit the risk of scarring and other revision rhinoplasty surgery complications.
Is revision rhinoplasty painful?
The surgery itself is not painful because the patient is under anesthesia. After surgery, patients are prescribed pain medications so they are comfortable during their recovery.
Can I drive myself home after a revision rhinoplasty surgery?
Dr. Azizzadeh does not allow a patient to drive himself or herself home after a revision rhinoplasty procedure. Instead, a patient will need to find someone who can drive him or her home following surgery.
When are stitches removed after a revision rhinoplasty procedure?
Stitches are generally removed within about six to eight days of treatment. Stitches are usually absorbed by the skin. Therefore, Dr. Azizzadeh may trim the stitches, which will not result in any pain.
Can you guarantee the results of a revision rhinoplasty procedure?
There are no guarantees with any facial rejuvenation procedure. However, Dr. Azizzadeh believes in a very open line of communication with his patients in order to clarify realistic expectations. During a consultation, he outlines the benefits and risks of revision rhinoplasty. Dr. Azizzadeh also helps each patient weigh the pros and cons of a revision rhinoplasty procedure. In doing so, Dr. Azizzadeh helps each of his patients make an informed decision about revision rhinoplasty.
How will I know if my revision rhinoplasty was successful?
The final results of a revision rhinoplasty procedure sometimes take up to two years to become visible. In the meantime, Dr. Azizzadeh requests follow-up appointments to evaluate a patient’s progress after a revision rhinoplasty.
Dr. Azizzadeh’s goal is to help a revision rhinoplasty patient achieve a harmonious facial appearance, and he monitors a patient’s progress closely during the recovery period. Dr. Azizzadeh is also available to respond to a revision rhinoplasty patient’s questions after surgery. He wants his revision rhinoplasty patients to feel comfortable and confident in their appearance following surgery and is happy to discuss any post-treatment concerns.
What should I do if I experience complications after a revision rhinoplasty?
In the event that a patient experiences revision rhinoplasty complications, notify Dr. Azizzadeh. Then, Dr. Azizzadeh can meet with a patient to correct any issues that otherwise hamper revision rhinoplasty recovery.
