A combination of experience, architecture and art
Revision rhinoplasty is one of the most technically difficult operations in nasal surgery due to the existence of problems arising from previous surgery that make it more difficult to treat and handle the patient. On one hand, the bone and cartilage structures are weakened and distorted, and the soft, covering tissues are scarred and adherent. On the other hand, the patient often presents psychological problems, scepticism and diminished confidence in the surgeon. Revision rhinoplasty requires a combination of experience, architecture and art, as well as careful preoperative planning in order to restore balance between the functional and aesthetic aspects. All this entails a deep theoretical knowledge of the subject as codified in the literature and outstanding surgical dexterity.
