What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to repair or improve cosmetic or functional problems of the nose resulting from a previous rhinoplasty procedure. Patients are frequently referred to the Glasgold Group because of prior disappointing outcomes. Revision rhinoplasty can be a more complicated procedure because the previous surgery may have included excessive removal of supporting bone and cartilage, loss of tip support, and or/twisted nasal structure, along with scar tissue. Each of these issues presents a greater surgical challenge than a first rhinoplasty.

Our technique at Glasgold Group involves precisely replacing missing structure and repositioning cartilage to produce a nose that is aesthetically pleasing in both size and shape. Surgical skill and extensive experience also allow us to reduce an overly long nose and/or correct an excessively drooping tip. Your new nose should appear natural, well-shaped, and in proportion to your face.

Your Initial Consultation for Revision Rhinoplasty

At your consultation appointment, we will discuss your desired goals for surgery, set expectations for the outcome of the surgery, and ensure you understand the postoperative healing process. Once we have determined your candidacy and have discussed your goals, we will use computer imaging to give you a realistic idea of how your nose will look after plastic surgery and show you results achieved on other patients (we always get patient consent to show their pictures).

Prospective patients should use the consultation appointment to ask questions they may have about the surgery and the results. After the consultation, patients should:

  • Have a better understanding of the process
  • Have an approximate cost of revision rhinoplasty
  • Know what to expect before, during, and after a nose job
  • Feel comfortable with their plastic surgeon(s)
  • Understand the expected results

I had my primary rhinoplasty with a plastic surgeon other than Dr. Robert Glasgold and was not at all happy with my results. Too much cartilage was taken out, so my nasal valves collapsed, and my nostrils became totally asymmetrical. Honestly, I was devastated and really didn’t know what to do. Thank goodness someone recommended I see Dr. Glasgold. He performed a revision rhinoplasty, and I can finally breathe again. Additionally, my new nose looks incredible. Several family members and friends have commented on how great I look. I highly recommend Dr. Glasgold to other patients. In addition to the positive things I’ve already mentioned, I’d also like to mention that the staff at the Glasgold Group is wonderful and very professional.


Dr. Robert Glasgold is extremely professional as well as personable and exceeded all my expectations. I was nervous about getting rhinoplasty done, but Dr. Glasgold and his whole office made the experience simple and easy. I am so incredibly happy with the results post-op, and it has only been a little over one month since surgery!


Dr. Glasgold is great! He has patience and takes his time with you. He was always quick to answer any questions I had and really took good care of me. Recommend him to anyone. My other experience was not as great as this one, and I wish I had known about him sooner.

The Revision Rhinoplasty Procedure Explained

Revision rhinoplasty procedural times tend to be longer than traditional rhinoplasty and can take about one to two hours additional hours to perform. Either general anesthesia or a combination of local anesthesia and sedation may be used. For some procedures, the incisions are confined to the inside of the nose, which is known as closed revision rhinoplasty. Other procedures require an additional small incision between the nostrils on the underside of the nose, known as open revision rhinoplasty.

Recovery from Revision Nose Surgery

After the revision rhinoplasty procedure, patients will experience swelling and bruising around the eye area for a few days. It is important to follow your surgeon’s instructions carefully during this time. The recovery period for secondary rhinoplasty is longer than that of cosmetic surgery in general, but it varies depending on the techniques used by your facial plastic surgeon. Your doctor may need to use cartilage grafts or other special surgical techniques, which can increase recovery time.

Once healing starts, the nasal septum and other soft tissues inside your nose are likely to be tender for some weeks. To help with pain management, you may be prescribed pain medications as needed. During the first few days after surgery, strenuous activity needs to be avoided to promote proper healing and minimize any risk of complications from revision rhinoplasty patient care.

However, light walking and other low-impact activities are encouraged once you have received clearance from your doctor. In addition, you should apply an ice pack on the bridge of your nose frequently throughout the day for several days after your procedure. This helps reduce swelling, maintain blood flow to the nasal skin and underlying cartilage structures, and improve nasal breathing ability during recovery time.

By following all postoperative instructions closely and being patient through their healing time process, most female and male revision rhinoplasty patients will achieve a beautiful nose that looks natural with minimal aesthetic issues. With this goal achieved, they usually express satisfaction with their new appearance and enhanced self-confidence!

Potential Side Effects of Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision procedures are delicate procedures that can be difficult to perfect. It is often more complex than the initial surgery, as it requires cartilage grafts and other techniques to correct the crooked nose or other cosmetic issues. Potential side effects of revision rhinoplasty include medical issues such as infection, scarring, and persistent discomfort around the nose. An experienced board-certified plastic surgeon should be consulted when considering this outpatient procedure, as the success of a perfect nose depends on the skill of your rhinoplasty surgeon.

Revision Rhinoplasty Cost

The exact cost of revision rhinoplasty varies depending on the individual and their specific case; however, an experienced surgeon in this field may charge anywhere from $18,000 to $22,000. The Glasgold Group experts are highly experienced in achieving cosmetic goals while preserving nasal function, making them the ideal candidate for revision rhinoplasty needs. 

Insurance coverage is not usually included in the cost of a revision rhinoplasty procedure; however, patients should contact their insurance provider to understand what kind of coverage they might receive. In addition to the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fees and costs for any additional surgery may also be included in the overall cost of a revision rhinoplasty.
