Revision Rhinoplasty


Revision Rhinoplasty, also known as Secondary rhinoplasty, is a procedure to revise a previous nasal surgery. Dr. Thomas Buonassisi and Dr. Andrew Bartlett are both Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeons with 20 years experience, and are both highly trained and specialized facial cosmetic surgeons who focus their practice largely around the nose.


Candidates for Secondary Rhinoplasty


Patients who may be candidates for secondary rhinoplasty:


  • Are realistic in their expectations
  • Understand that the potential complications of rhinoplasty surgery increase with each additional surgery
  • Their nasal framework remains sufficiently intact to handle another surgery
  • The amount of scar tissue in the nose is minimal
  • Have not had any nasal surgery within the last year

If you would like to know if you are a candidate for secondary rhinoplasty, we would be happy to offer a complimentary pre consultation with one of our friendly and knowledgable patient care managers. 


How Secondary Rhinoplasty is Performed


Dr. Bartlett will choose either a closed approach rhinoplasty or open approach to access the underlying nasal framework. The cartilages and bone of the tip and bridge of the nose are then reshaped to improve the cosmetic appearance of the nose.  Once Dr. Bartlett has access to the nasal features, he chooses from a range of techniques to achieve the desired result. During your surgical consult, Dr. Bartlett will assess your nasal features, clearly explain the pros and cons of each technique, and recommend the most suiting approach for you. Secondary rhinoplasty surgery typically takes from 1.5 – 2 hours, and patients can return home the same day.
