THE REVISION RHINOPLASTY SPECIALIST!
Dr. Warner specializes in revision rhinoplasty surgery and can help you reach your goals if you are not happy with your original rhinoplasty. Dr. Warner is known for creating beautiful and natural results.
Revisionary surgery is when a previously operated-on nose needs correction. Dr. Warner understands that this can be an anxiety-provoking experience for patients. Nobody desires secondary surgery, but sometimes the results from a first surgery may be suboptimal.
Whether your previous surgery was for cosmetic reasons, functional reasons, or due to a traumatic injury to the nose, a secondary surgery on the nose can be more complicated than primary rhinoplasty. Patients seeking revision rhinoplasty can have a tremendous amount of complexities. Some of this variability comes from the technique used in primary rhinoplasty, leading to various deformities and complications or may come from inadequate correction of previous concerns and issues.
A comprehensive consultation will address your specific concerns, and Dr. Warner will diagnose any nasal problems. At Warner Institute, we ensure a solid surgical plan resulting in your ultimate satisfaction. This appointment is designed for you to talk openly with Dr. Warner about the specific details of surgery while addressing any apprehension or concerns. You will be given a quote for any out-of-pocket costs related to your surgery.
THE PSYCHOLOGICAL ASPECT OF REVISION RHINOPLASTY
Often having a primary rhinoplasty surgery can be very distressing, but then to realize that your nose is not what you envisioned can come with a broader range of emotional responses and thoughts. Dr. Warner understands the thought of undergoing further surgery can be anxiety provoking – the recovery, time off work or school, further discomfort, added cost, and the fear of further disappointment all contribute to delaying a revision surgery. However, there are typically many varied factors leading to initial disappointment. For instance, the patient may not have been clear in their concerns, was not given the time to voice their concerns, or was given an unrealistic expectation about what surgery could achieve. Maybe the surgery was not performed optimally, or perhaps the surgeon did a perfect job, and things didn’t heal correctly. There is no doubt that nature plays a significant role in the outcome of rhinoplasty surgery.
Despite the underlying reason, Dr. Warner (certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery) can help you predictably achieve your goals. There is room to correct the deformity in your nose from your previous surgery and make it better in almost all cases. We encourage you to set up a consultation to speak with Dr. Warner and discuss your concerns and options. Let us help you in your journey to having the natural-looking nose you always wanted!
PRIMARY RHINOPLASTY VERSUS REVISION RHINOPLASTY
Even though revision rhinoplasty certainly presents more challenges than a primary (or first-time) rhinoplasty surgery Dr. Warner is renowned for his skill and artistry in revision rhinoplasty. Patients who previously have undergone surgery present more scar tissue, more significant deformities, greater structural/functional problems, fewer options for harvesting cartilage, and more significant psychological distress. Using his aesthetic background from his plastic surgery training, and his functional/structural background from his otolaryngology training, Dr. Warner, delivers the most thorough assessment and plan for addressing your concerns. After meeting with Dr. Warner, you will have hope restored that there is still a very high chance of success. During your consultation, you will discuss your initial concerns, current concerns, review your photographs, develop a plan for revision surgery, discuss recovery, and receive a quote for any out-of-pocket costs related to surgery.
