Revision Rhinoplasty Los Angeles

Many patients seek rhinoplasty to correct a functional abnormality in the nose, or to enhance the appearance by modifying the bridge, nostrils or tip. However, some patients who have already had rhinoplasty are still unhappy with the results or their surgery, and those patients often seek out a specialist in revision rhinoplasty.  Dr. David Stoker, an expert in revision rhinoplasty surgery, often performs revision procedures to create more natural appearances and improved breathing.  These are some of the most satisfying cases for a nose surgery specialist.

There are a variety of reasons why a patient may need revision rhinoplasty. To find out if revision rhinoplasty is right for you, call the office of Dr. David Stoker to schedule your consultation.
Some common reasons why revised nose surgery may be necessary include:

Excess Scar Tissue after Surgery

As a result of suboptimal techniques, or problematic healing, some patients may be left with an excess buildup of scar tissue. This scar tissue can cause the shape of the nose to become distorted and inhibit healthy breathing functions. Depending on your situation, Dr. Stoker will surgically remove the excess scar tissue and reshape the nose for a natural appearing result.

Asymmetrical Tip

The tissue in the nose is primarily composed of cartilage and soft tissue. As people age, the nose will continue to change shape for many years after having surgery.  Sometimes this will unmask tip asymmetries that were not noticeable earlier.  Dr. Stoker can precisely refine the tip to correct any irregularities and achieve a pleasing appearance.

Deviated Septum

If rhinoplasty was performed and an existing deviated septum was ignored, the patient’s breathing may be negatively affected. Even the deviated septum itself can distort the shape of the nose causing the patient to be unhappy with the results of their surgery. Dr. Stoker can correct the deviated septum and improve the patient’s breathing while also creating a more natural shape.  

Depressed Nose Bridge

One common mistake that can be made in rhinoplasty is to have too much cartilage or nasal bone removed. This can lead to a depressed bridge, also referred to as a “ski jump nose.” Dr. Stoker individualizes each revision rhinoplasty surgery so that he can be sure to achieve the goals of his patients. He will restore the shape of your nasal bridge to help you achieve the appearance you wanted the first time.
It is important that you follow all of your after care instructions and maintain all follow up appointments with Dr. Stoker so that he can monitor your healing after surgery.
