We’ve said it before, but the statement bears repeating. The most important things for patients to do to avoid revisionary plastic surgery, or additional cosmetic surgery to address previous plastic surgery results, is to thoroughly research their prospective surgeon and maintain an open line of communication. While you frequently hear stories of pop culture icons undergoing breast revision surgery to replace or remove breast implants for a variety of reasons, the nose is also another area where follow-up surgery is necessary to revise the results produced by a previous plastic surgeon.

In addition to getting to know your plastic surgeon and communicating with them, it’s also important to understand the extent of a procedure’s cosmetic capabilities in order to maximize satisfaction with your plastic surgery results. Because the nose is such a central facial feature even small cosmetic changes such as tip refinement and bridge reshaping can go a long way in rejuvenating your entire facial appearance. The providers at Pittman Plastic Surgery make this step easier by providing computer imaging to simulate what the proposed changes will look like before surgery. This visual component is an excellent tool for allowing both patients and surgeons to approach surgery with a clear understanding of each party’s expectations.

Completed in Pittman Plastic Surgery’s AAAHC accredited Surgical Suite, Drs. Ed Pittman and Piotr Skowronski perform rhinoplasty to adjust the shape and position of a patient’s nose to create a more aesthetically pleasing balance between facial features. Safely under anesthesia, Dr. Pittman and Dr. Skowronski can re-contour the nose, adjust the angle and distance between the upper lip and nose, and reshape the nostrils as needed.

Rhinoplasty can also be performed to correct functional issues of the nose such as a deviated septum. Because the nose plays such an important role in respiration, it’s even more important for patients to do their initial research when selecting a plastic surgeon for rhinoplasty.
