There are different types of rhinoplasty procedures. Revision Rhinoplasty is one such type and is necessary in cases where the original procedure was not able to achieve the desired results.
Problems with the actual surgery can be a result of inadequate communication between the patient and the surgeon, poor planning and technical issues with the healing and surgery. The results of this type of nose surgery depend largely on the plastic surgeon you choose. The plastic surgeons in India have expertise in performing revision nose surgery provided you choose the one with great care. Also, the reasonable cost of the treatment makes INDIA the most sought after nations among patients seeking revision nose job.
Some of the most common problems that can occur from primary nose surgery include hanging columella, retracted nostrils, polybeak deformity, inverted V deformity, pinched nasal tip, or open roof deformity. Any such problem can affect the entire appearance of the nose and the ability of the person to breathe.

Below you will learn about the pinched nasal tip, hanging columella and open roof deformity
Pinched Nasal Tip
It is the condition in which the nasal tip becomes unnaturally narrow after the nose surgery. The condition can be consequential to the over resection of the cartilages that form the nasal tip. This, in turn, weakens the side wall of the nose, and over the period of time, the tip becomes pinched. It can also become pinched if the plastic surgeon narrows the cartilages with the incision into the nasal tip cartilage known as dome division method or with the sutures.A Pinched nasal tip can be improved by revision rhinoplasty by reconstructing the nasal tip cartilages with the grafts either from the ear cartilage, nasal septum or rib cartilage.
Open Roof Deformity
It occurs when the actual nose surgery did not adequately narrow the nasal bones. Revision nose surgery can improve this condition by performing osteotomies and narrowing the bones of the nose optimally. This can be done by closed revision nose job.
Retracted Nostrils or Hanging Columella
It refers to the relationship between the nostrils and the middle part of the nasal tip. Some patients develop hanging columella after undergoing nose surgery. It is possible to correct this condition with revision rhinoplasty by removing more tissue from the central columella part or adding cartilage to the nostrils called alar rim.
Irrespective of the problem resulting from the actual nose surgery procedure, revision rhinoplasty can correct provided it is performed by an experienced, board-certified and trained plastic surgeon in India.
