Rhinoplasty is a complex surgical procedure. While patients always hope that their first rhinoplasty procedure is their last, sometimes they need a second procedure to achieve their desired results. In these cases, a secondary nose job or revision rhinoplasty procedure is the best solution. Revision procedures are performed to correct any aesthetic and functional problems that persist after the original surgery. About 15% of rhinoplasty patients undergo a secondary nose job.
A revision, or secondary, facelift is a facelift procedure performed for the second time. There are several reasons that patients choose this procedure. First, even the best quality facelift doesn’t last forever. Even with a high-quality facelift, people continue to age. The work must be revised after around a decade for the best results. Second, some people decide to have a revision performed because they are not happy with the results of their first facelift.
