Rhinoplasty, or surgery of the nose, is a difficult, complex and detailed procedure – used to restore function and to achieve facial balance. Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed surgeries today for a myriad of reasons. Many people, of all ethnicities, are unhappy with the nose they were born with – it’s too wide, too long, or has a bump in the middle – and they want it fixed. Others ask Dr. Yeh to correct functional damage resulting from trauma or disease. Some people seek Dr. Yeh’s expertise to correct unsatisfying results from a previous nasal surgery. This is called Revision Rhinoplasty.
WHAT IS REVISION RHINOPLASTY?
Revision Rhinoplasty is performed in Orange County, Irvine and Laguna Beach to correct undesirable results from a previous Rhinoplasty procedure. Undesirable results can occur at the hands of a physician who performs Rhinoplasty surgery – only occasionally.
Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most complex surgeries performed today. It can achieve the most satisfying outcomes – if it is performed by a highly skilled, experienced surgeon who performs it regularly.
WHY REVISION RHINOPLASTY?
GOOD CANDIDATES FOR REVISION RHINOPLASTY SURGERY:
Any man or woman who needs to have nasal form or function restored, and who is in otherwise good health, could be a good candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty. Dr. Yeh will assess your condition and concerns, during the initial consultation, and then advise you honestly about what can be done.
Dr. Yeh believes that the initial consultation is most important and should be done face to face with your surgeon. After listening closely and carefully to your concerns, Dr. Yeh is able to do a critical evaluation and make the correct recommendations to address your specific needs. It is during the consultation that you both arrive at a mutual understanding and trust than enables Dr. Yeh to tailor the treatment plan that is best suited to you – not somebody else.
REVISION RHINOPLASTY PROCEDURE:
Revision Rhinoplasty surgery is complex and detailed. It involves effectively restoring the form/shape of the nose, repairing breathing mechanisms, and making cosmetic improvements without changing the ethnic appearance of your nose.
Open or Closed Rhinoplasty will be performed based upon what Dr. Yeh has determined during your consultation. An Open procedure involves incisions that are made on the inside of the nose with an additional small incision on the underside of the nose between your nostrils. A Closed procedure means the incisions are made inside the nose only.
His skilled hands and extensive knowledge, combined with an artistic eye and experience enable him to achieve the most natural looking results possible.
