Revision Rhinoplasty Consultation
Revision Rhinoplasty is a complex and challenging operation. In order to achieve an optimal outcome, it is necessary for the patient to provide detailed and accurate information regarding all previous surgeries. We routinely request pre operative photographs, an operative report and if possible, a complete copy of the patient’s chart prior to the consultation. Dr. Sam Rizk, a New York City Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, is an Expert at secondary or Revision Rhinoplasty, and will evaluate your nasal structure, determine the best procedure to correct any deformities, and explain in detail the different techniques, and accompanying risks and complications, as well as what to expect post-operatively.
It is important to understand that no revision rhinoplasty operation can achieve 100% correction and improvement. Therefore, New York Top Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon Dr. Sam Rizk will discuss your options and determine which of your requests can actually be fulfilled in a reasonable manner so that you can make an informed choice regarding this surgery. There is a lot more involved with a secondary or revision rhinoplasty than you may realize; it is a much more complicated and less predictable surgery than operating on a nose that has never been touched before. It is vital to know what can reasonably be achieved and what to expect to minimize the chance of having unrealistic expectations or dissatisfaction.
NYC Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sam Rizk has operated on thousands of nasal patients, and through his unique skills and expertise, he is able to achieve a better result. Although an ideal outcome can never be guaranteed due to the many variables, Dr. Sam Rizk can greatly help you increase your chances of being pleased with the results. Ideally, Dr. Sam Rizk will request that you wait a period of 9-12 months before undertaking a secondary operation, and longer in some cases. This is needed to allow the tissues sufficient time to settle down and swelling to resolve so that the nasal structures can be more visible. Expert Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon Dr. Sam Rizk uses a 3D high definition telescopic lens to visualize the internal structures of your nose, including cartilage, bone, and fatty tissue. As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Rizk is also able to correct or improve your breathing at the same time as striving to deliver a more attractive and aesthetically appealing nose that is in good balance with your other facial features.
