I am from Thailand and had rhinoplasty surgery two years ago. I was really unhappy with the results of the procedure, and have been contemplating revision rhinoplasty. However, after doing my research I’ve seen that revision rhinoplasty is a lot more difficult than the first surgery. Why is this?
Revision rhinoplasty is more difficult than regular rhinoplasty for several reasons. First of all, due to the first surgery there can be excessive scar tissue, which makes it more difficult to work with. Also, cartilage which was available for the first surgery for reshaping may have already been used, and now cartilage must be borrowed from another part of the body, such as the ear. These difficulties can make a revision procedure m ore complicated.
