Rhinoplasty (nosejob surgery) is one of the most complex and detailed operations in plastic surgery. For this reason, it is not uncommon for me to encouter patients who have previously had a rhinoplasty done by another surgeon who are not happy with their results. Either they don't breathe well, they don't look good, or some combination of those things.
Revision rhinoplasty is called secondary rhinoplasty the 2nd time around or tertiary rhinoplasty the 3rd time around. In these situations, attention to detail, anatomy, and sound surgical principles is incredibly important.
My philosophy with rhinoplasty is to achieve a patient's desires by making subtle, incremental changes that preserve the unique beauty and characteristics of his or her face. This is especially important in ethnic rhinoplasty (rhinoplasty in patients of Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, African, Jewish, or mixed heritage), as an overly anglicized nose can look artificial and incongruous.
A good rhinoplasty and/or septoplasty operation will allow you to look good and breathe well. It will make your nose less of a focal point and allow observers to appreciate your other facial features, such as your eyes, lips, and cheekbones.
