Julian Rowe-Jones on: Why is revision rhinoplasty performed? (Video)

Top UK Rhinoplasty Surgeon, Julian Rowe-Jones on: Why is revision rhinoplasty performed?


No surgeon, however experienced, can guarantee complete control over the result, there’s always unpredictability in any operation and of course that’s true in rhinoplasty as well. As such, usually at a year, when everything is settled down and we can judge the final result and it might be that something unexpected; has happened there might be an extra bit of scarring, there might be a little bit of callus formation that needs a little bit further refinement and actually I think the word refinement might be more helpful in those cases than thinking of revision. 


Revision is often used to assume that something was done incorrectly or something went wrong with the first surgery, that isn’t the case, so usually revision rhinoplasty is better called refinement rhinoplasty to make the nose a little bit better still. It’s true to say however that sometimes primary rhinoplasty surgery is done badly and in that circumstance revision can be really difficult and if you have a bad result from your primary rhinoplasty the revision surgeon must be very experienced, as it’s really difficult and you need to make sure that your surgeon has good experience in revision rhinoplasty, difficult revision rhinoplasty.

A Rhinoplasty Testimonial

I have recently had revision rhinoplasty with Mr Julian Rowe-Jones and couldn’t be happier with the results. I felt totally at ease and had full confidence in his abilities before the procedure and the results turned out to be better than I had expected. I feel a lot more confident and I feel as though I look like an improved version of myself and my breathing became clearer. I didn’t feel any pain during recovery and didn’t need any medication.

The bruising was very minimal and quickly faded before my cast was taken off. Mr Julian Rowe-Jones is very skilled at what he does and always has the patient’s best interests at heart and does a marvellous job with a beautiful result. I highly recommend him and wish future patients as much success as me, God willing.
