What does a rhinoplasty procedure involve?
Rhinoplasty can be performed from within the nose, making the incision inside the nostrils. Sometimes an “open” procedure is used where a small incision is made across the columella, the vertical strip of tissue separating the nostrils
When the surgery is complete, a splint will be applied to help your nose maintain its new shape. Nasal packs or soft plastic splints also may be placed in your nostrils to stabilize the septum, the dividing wall between the air passages
How long can I expect the results to last?
With the exception of changes associated with aging, results are permanent .
Will I be put under general anesthesia?

is usually performed to correct serious mistakes made in prior surgeries, although some revision rhinoplasty procedures are touch-ups or second attempts to address the original problem.
Candidates for revision rhinoplasty may use the same doctor as for the original procedure, but in most cases revision rhinoplasty procedures are performed by a separate doctor. Like the original rhinoplasty surgery, there are limits to what revision rhinoplasty can do. Patients should have a clear idea of what they would like the outcome to be after revision rhinoplasty, and should discuss these expectations with their doctor during the consultation. The doctor performing the revision rhinoplasty can often present a variety of options, depending on what the patient expects the revision rhinoplasty to accomplish.
Bumps can be filed down, and dips can be filled out using implants. Revision rhinoplasty can also correct noses that are too thin or thick, and remove scar tissue. Because revision rhinoplasty requires a certain set of skills and is often more delicate than the original procedure, revision rhinoplasty can become a specialty in its own right, with some plastic surgeons’ reputations built on revision rhinoplasty alone.
