The Basics

What is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as secondary rhinoplasty, is a procedure we offer to help correct existing rhinoplasty results. It is a delicate procedure and is targeted to improve specific concerns. Often these changes will elevate the entire look of your facial appearance.

Many of Dr. Paul’s patients who have come to us for revision rhinoplasty have experienced problems with a previous surgery that must be corrected. There may be both cosmetic conersn as well as issues with breathing that must be addressed.

Dr. Paul’s approach to rhinoplasty centers around the concept of natural structure preservation. By preserving your natural features while enhancing your structural support, Dr. Paul can create top results that look beautiful, and enhance nasal breathing. Dr. Paul is an expert in using cartilage grafts and struts to reconstruct the nose into a shape and size that is equally proportionate and attractive.

Rest assured that Dr. Paul is one of the best and most respected facial plastic surgeons in New York City and has developed an excellent reputation for his work.

Revision Rhinoplasty Timeline


    You will meet Dr. Paul in his office so that he can examine your nose, ask you about your previous surgery, and listen to your goals. Using this information, he will discuss the various surgical techniques to create your surgical plan. Dr. Paul often uses virtual imaging to communicate proposed changes and ensure there is an aesthetic fit.

    1st Visit

    You will meet with the team and with Dr. Paul prior to your revision rhinoplasty. We will guide you in getting a medical clearance, send in your medicines, and review instructions. We will also confirm your aesthetic concerns.

    2nd Visit

    You will meet with Dr. Paul prior to your procedure. You will also meet with your anesthesiologist. After being administered anesthesia, Dr. Paul will cleanse the nose and perform your revision rhinoplasty. Once he is satisfied with your nasal appearance, you will be stitched up and a cast will be applied to your nose. You should be able to go home and rest that same day. You must have someone to bring you home.

    3rd Visit

    There will be a low degree of discomfort and you may have difficulty breathing to your nose, but it will pass. You can return to light activities, but avoid activities that may cause your nose to bleed. You will do icing and rest as directed. A more full set of instructions will be given prior to your procedure and will be tailord to your care.


    You will come into our office for the cast removal. This is done 6 or 7 days after your procedure.  You should eat a meal prior to arrival to make the experience as easy as possible for you. Most patients are able to return to school or work after cast removal.

    (DAY 6-7)

    You should expect swelling in the nose that will shift in the first month and then start to subside. You should avoid all sports in the first two weeks, and slowly and gently return to exercise. By 6 weeks, most are able to do all forms of sports. Most patients are seen in the office a few weeks after their procedure to ensure normal healing and to remove any dissolving sutures that have not fallen out.

    (WEEKS 1-6)

    Most patients have returned to all activities. The nose is healing and the swelling on the bridge of the nose will dissipate faster than on the tip of the nose, which generally takes the longest.  Any numbness in the tip usually resolve slowly.

    (MONTHS 2-12)

    Recovery from a Revision Rhinoplasty may extend beyond one year with minor changes in swelling and scar tissue continuing to improve. Scar tissue from the primary rhinoplasty may trap swelling and slow healing.  Your incision(s) will become virtually invisible in 6-12 months. Your revision rhinoplasty should last you for many years to come, please keep in mind that you may notice changes as you age.

What’s The First Step?

We want to help you get started on your Revision Rhinoplasty procedure and the first step is to get in touch and schedule a consultation. You can contact us through our website, or call the clinic to book a time at 212-832-8595. During your consultation, Dr. Paul will speak with you about your needs, desires, and goals for the procedure, and give a personalized assessment of how this surgery can benefit you. We understand that discussing an operation that has left you wishing for a revision is stressful, and we will do our best to be supportive and to create an open space for you to share your concerns and your goals.

While revision rhinoplasty can fix a number of issues, we want to ensure you are choosing the right procedure, and the initial consultation will determine if you are the right candidate. The consultation is the best time to ask as many questions as you can and share any concerns you might have. Rest assured, the information you share with us will remain confidential, as Dr. Paul strives to give every patient the best care possible.

What to Expect on the Day of Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery

From the moment you come into our surgical clinic, Dr. Paul and his team will go the extra mile to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. When you arrive for your appointment we will show you a private room where you will be given a gown to wear while undergoing the procedure.  From there, Dr. Paul will sit down and go over every aspect of the surgery he will be performing, from the anesthesia to the length of time it will take and what happens once he is done.

After the pre-surgery consultation, our friendly medical staff will accompany you to the operating  room to help you get situated. We know comfort is of the utmost importance in any cosmetic procedure, so we will adjust the room temperature, lighting, and ambient music to make you feel relaxed.

Revision rhinoplasty surgery is almost always performed using the open rhinoplasty approach and under general anesthesia. To perform this procedure, Dr. Paul makes small incisions along the vertical strip of skin separating the nostrils called the columella. The skin and soft tissues are then folded to expose the underlying cartilage and bone for reshaping.

After your procedure is finished, we will go over post-surgery recovery and care in extensive detail.

Revision Rhinoplasty Recovery

We are committed to helping you receive the best guidance to optimize your Revision Rhinoplasty in New York City. Since you will already be familiar with the process having been through the surgery previously, we will ensure that you are confident and supported as you return home. All patients are given a thorough packet to guide them in their recovery. This packet is given once you book your procedure.

Thinking about your recovery begins before the operation even takes place. We recommend minimizing recovery time by ceasing all blood thinning agents, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, vitamin E, green tea, and other herbal supplements during the preoperative period. Following surgery, we will temporarily give you some prescription medication to assist with the reduction of swelling, inflammation, and bruising.

Our staff is always available to answer questions and give you support after the procedure, so don’t hesitate to call us if you have a question or concern. Dr. Paul’s surgical methods are created to be natural-looking, with long-term results with a return to daily activities in just days following surgery. Dr. Paul prides himself on delivering natural, long-lasting results with minimal downtime.

Combine Your Revision Rhinoplasty

A NYC Revision rhinoplasty is a delicate and intricate surgical procedure. Although we don’t suggest combining it with other surgeries, so that your body has adequate time to rest and recover after the procedure, you can always plan for additional procedures with Dr. Paul.
