About Revision Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is one of the most sought-after plastic surgeries on the market, and patients are usually ecstatic about their results. However, if you're not pleased with the look of your nose or you're struggling to breathe following nose surgery, revision rhinoplasty is performed at Cherry Creek Face and Skin in Denver, CO. Revision or secondary nose surgery typically includes minor adjustments to better the appearance of the nose or includes reconstruction to address the architecture of it, allowing for easier breathing. You do not have to live with lackluster results or deal with functional problems after rhinoplasty — schedule an appointment with our team for more information about revision rhinoplasty and your opportunities for achieving more satisfying results.
"Thank you Dr. Terkonda! I went in for a chin implant because I inherited my mothers weak chin. Dr. Terkonda and I had a good discussion about the symmetry of my face specifically that I have a round face and the result I was looking for was a more angular masculine jaw line. He explained the difference between a chin implant and genioplasty.He explained how genioplasty would actually pull the muscles attached to the bone in my chin forward and give my face a slightly more angular look. Because of my round face he also performed lipo under my chin and buccal fat removal. It’s been 6 weeks and I am extremely pleased with the results. The recovery was just as he explained, I was out of work only a couple of days and the majority of the swelling was gone in 10 days."- R. / Healthgrades / Jun 18, 2021

"Doctor Terkonda was absolutely excellent in his diagnosis, treatment options explanation, and surgery. Where as I could not breath before because the side of my nose had been crushed from an assault, I can breath well now! Insurance I used at the time was Blue Cross.Dr Terkonda has a great bedside manner, and really cared about me and my outcome. His surgical skills were awesome performing a septoplasty, turbinate reductions, in addition to other items in the same visit. Make sure to consult with this doctor if you need help with your nose and sinuses for breathing, have suffered traumatic injury, or would like cosmetic surgery. The doctor did top-notch care and work from beginning to end."- A. / Healthgrades / May 03, 2021

How is Revision Rhinoplasty Performed?
You might be an ideal candidate for revision rhinoplasty if you want to alter or fix the effects of your previous procedure, although you should be aware this surgery can be much more difficult than the original rhinoplasty. Patients experiencing difficulty breathing may even be able to get insurance to cover part of the costs of surgery. Prior to initiating revision rhinoplasty, our team will schedule a consultation to understand your aesthetic goals. Revision rhinoplasty is usually completed under general anesthesia, and our team will choose either a closed or open approach. While employing the open technique, we will separate the skin, cartilage, and bone, which allows for maximum visibility, and then will reshape the nose to the requested frame. The closed technique is less invasive and typically chosen for simpler repairs. Following the surgery, you will be asked to wear a nose splint for about a week and may be asked to schedule a follow-up appointment to remove both the splint and stitches. This will also allow our team to check on your results. Revision rhinoplasty recovery can take a bit longer than the original rhinoplasty procedure. You could experience heavy swelling and bruising, as well as some discomfort for around two weeks.
