What is a secondary rhinoplasty?
Patients who have already undergone rhinoplasty ask for a second opinion because they are not happy with the results. This is what we surgeons call secondary rhinoplasty in Turkey. This procedure includes a wide range of patients, from those who are looking for small details that the previous surgeon has not been able to obtain, to patients with real disasters who are looking for a professional with guarantees and experience.
Secondary rhinoplasty in Turkey is a real challenge, as I have to deal with a totally altered anatomy, very important fibrosis, and often a lack of resources, such as being able to obtain nasal septum grafts. In addition, we are also faced with the problem of a patient who has already undergone surgery without the expected result, and therefore with all that this entails.
What is a secondary rhinoplasty in Turkey?
As its name suggests, secondary rhinoplasty is aesthetic and functional surgery of the nose that is performed on patients who have already undergone a previous operation and need a new operation to correct one or more defects. I meet patients who come to my practice with problems due to a bad operation, and they come to my clinic to correct problems, these can be functional or aesthetic. The most common problems to be solved are:
Excessive or asymmetric resection in a first surgery, which produces a “clearly operated” nose. It is classic to find patients who had surgery years ago and who come “desperate” to get naturalness to their face and remove the stigma.
Giba or laterorrhinia, when the nose is still crooked after the first surgery.
Alterations due to scarring or small details that cause discomfort on the part of the patient.
Small profile alterations where the expected result has not been obtained, asymmetries in the tip. Secondary or corrective rhinoplasty involves a series of challenges; firstly, the anatomy of the nose has already been altered previously by another surgery, so it is technically more demanding and requires a lot of attention, study, planning, and technique to guarantee excellent results, as the patient wants this to be his or her last intervention.
When should a secondary rhinoplasty be performed?
Sometimes, despite the best efforts of the turkish surgeon and his team, a secondary rhinoplasty may be necessary due to unexpected poor healing or changes in facial proportions that result in an unnatural nose that does not match the patient’s face. That is why we are so aware of the importance of individualized planning based on aesthetic forecasts until harmonious, natural-looking noses are achieved. Normally, the approach of this type of surgery is to reconstruct the anatomy of the nose and at the same time give it its harmony and beauty. The aim is to improve nasal aesthetics, preserve or improve normal respiratory functions, and guarantee results that are in line with the patient’s wishes and objectives.
How is rhinoplasty different from conventional rhinoplasty?
Secondary rhinoplasty may require tissue supply, usually cartilage, as with a conventional rhinoplasty, so the surgeon must know how to obtain this cartilage from an already operated area where it may not exist. Sometimes it may even require taking grafts from areas such as the auricular cartilage. However, experience allows excellent results to be obtained
What results can we expect from a secondary rhinoplasty?
It is necessary for each patient to understand that undergoing a secondary rhinoplasty in Turkey is not a “touch-up”, but a serious and complex surgery that requires a thorough and complete examination. It is important to communicate well, to teach the patient what aspects will be improved and how and what degree of aesthetic and functional improvement will be obtained. While there is no rule about how many times a patient can safely undergo rhinoplasty, it is important to keep in mind that each surgery can lead to more scar tissue, which has a significant impact on healing and aesthetic results.
