Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery With Thin Skin
Patients who are unsatisfied with the results of a rhinoplasty often seek a revision rhinoplasty surgery to correct the nose. Because revision rhinoplasty presents unique considerations, especially for patients with thin nasal skin, it is imperative that patients seek treatment from a facial plastic surgeon with extensive training and experience in the revision rhinoplasty procedure. Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, is the Director of the Institute for Rhinoplasty & Nasal Reconstruction in Los Angeles, and a revision rhinoplasty expert who utilizes special surgical techniques to achieve the best result on patients with thin nasal skin.
Thin Skin and Revision Rhinoplasty
Thin skin on the nose will generally show the underlying cartilage and irregularities more than thicker skin. This is especially true when a patient with thin skin has already undergone a rhinoplasty procedure. When a patient with thin nasal skin desires a revision rhinoplasty surgery, there are some techniques the surgeon can utilize to limit the visibility of the underlying cartilage.
Dr. Azizzadeh will usually consider using temporalis fascia or rib perichondrium to add a layer of cushion between the cartilage and outer layer of thin skin. These thin tissues generally work well to add just enough support to the nose to camouflage the underlying cartilage and create a smooth, natural looking rhinoplasty result.
It is important that a patient with thin nasal skin see an experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeon to achieve the most satisfactory outcome. Dr. Babak Azizzadeh is a world-renowned facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon whose board certification in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology gives him a special insight into the form and function of the nose. With every rhinoplasty surgery, he takes steps to maintain the proper function of the nose while creating the patient’s desired look.
Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery
A patient interested in a revision rhinoplasty will need an in-depth evaluation with Dr. Azizzadeh so that he can determine the reasons for the displeasing results and decide if you the individual is a candidate for revision rhinoplasty surgery. If you are a good candidate for the procedure, he will work with you to create a customized revision rhinoplasty treatment plan. Dr. Azizzadeh’s main goal is always to provide his patients with natural-looking results that bring symmetry and balance to the face.
