Many patients have had prior nasal surgery with the ultimate expectation of an improved functional and aesthetic result. Unfortunately, the patient’s result is not always satisfactory and the patient may desire revision surgery. These unfavorable results can be from inappropriate techniques, postoperative healing, or subsequent injuries.
Revision rhinoplasty is a complex procedure that requires a skill set that is more challenging than that required for first time nasal surgery. Often times revision nasal surgery requires reconstruction of many of the underlying support structures of the nose that were altered by the previous surgery.
Dr. Yavrouian has had extensive training and experience in revision rhinoplasty and understands the complexity of the nose, both aesthetically and functionally. He has fellowship training in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery during which over half of the nasal surgeries performed were revision surgeries for patients who originally had surgery elsewhere. He also is board certified in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, which has given him an extensive understanding of the complex anatomy and function of the nose.
During the consultation, after careful examination of the nose, discussion of the patient’s goals, and review of any prior records, Dr. Yavrouian is able to outline a detailed surgical plan to improve the patient’s function and form. Photographs are taken which are then used to simulate the goal for surgery. These images are then taken to surgery to assist in achieving the desired results.
