Revision Rhinoplasty | Stepanyan Surgical Arts Center
Are you unhappy with your rhinoplasty surgery? If so, you may want to consider revision rhinoplasty in Glendale, CA with Dr. Martin Stepanyan.
Because the nose plays such a prominent role in facial appearance and proportions, it’s no wonder rhinoplasty is consistently one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S. Unfortunately, many nose surgery patients aren’t happy with their results, leading them to seek follow-up surgery to realize their aesthetic goals.
Expert facial, reconstructive, and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Martin Stepanyan brings his extensive training, education, and experience as a reconstructive and maxillofacial surgeon to every revision rhinoplasty. Even if your initial rhinoplasty procedure wasn’t successful, Dr. Stepanyan can make your dreams come true.
What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty helps unhappy patients achieve the nose they envisioned when they first decided to get cosmetic surgery. However, revision rhinoplasty is more than a secondary surgery; it is an advanced, intricate procedure that focuses on correcting issues or dissatisfaction from the original rhinoplasty. Think of it as a second chance – an opportunity to fine-tune the changes or address any concerns that might have emerged after your first nose surgery.
Dr. Stepanyan emphasizes that the purpose of revision rhinoplasty goes beyond fixing mistakes. It’s about restoring confidence, ensuring you can breathe easily, and ensuring your nose remains a centerpiece of balanced facial aesthetics.
Do You Need Revision Rhinoplasty?
Patients seek revision rhinoplasty for many reasons. Aesthetically, the initial surgery might not achieve the desired nose shape or harmonization with facial features. Functionally, post-surgical complications like breathing difficulties can arise. Additionally, healing can sometimes lead to unforeseen results such as asymmetry or irregularities.
Emotional dissatisfaction, where the outcome doesn’t align with your envisioned result, also plays a part. Revision rhinoplasty is essential for rectifying these concerns, ensuring you attain your ideal appearance.

How Is Revision Rhinoplasty Different From Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty requires an especially skilled and seasoned surgeon. That’s because operating on already altered tissues, handling scars, and managing possible compromised blood supply to the region makes revision rhinoplasty far more challenging than the original surgery.
There are pronounced distinctions between primary and revision rhinoplasty, and understanding these differences is crucial.
Revision rhinoplasty requires Dr. Stepanyan to deal with a previously surgically altered landscape. The tissues have changed, scars may be present, and some vital anatomical landmarks may no longer be present.
