ABOUT RHINOPLASTY PRIMARY VS SECONDARY

The term rhinoplasty refers to plastic surgery of the nose, often known by most people as a “nose job.” Secondary rhinoplasty is corrective nasal surgery that serves to alter the form and/or function of the nose after a previous rhinoplasty. Secondary aesthetic and reconstructive nasal re-shaping is indicated for cosmetic or functional deformities not properly treated or made worse from the primary operation. Some also refer to secondary rhinoplasty as “revision rhinoplasty.” This broader terminology can apply to rhinoplasty required beyond a secondary operation, such as a third or fourth operation.
