Rhinoplasty is an extensive surgical procedure that can alter the size and shape of the nose to provide patients with facial harmony and an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Although most rhinoplasty results have patients enjoying their newly contoured nose, others may not be as satisfied with the aftermath of their procedure due to a “botched” nose that may, unfortunately, look worse than before. Thankfully, Dr. Clark can perform revision rhinoplasty to correct a deformed and asymmetrical nose due to a previous surgery or injury. While this procedure can enhance your misshapen nose, it is important that you address any questions or concerns regarding the process and the cost of your surgery before any decisions are made.
What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty, or secondary rhinoplasty, is a delicate and invasive surgery that reshapes the appearance of a crooked nose from a previous rhinoplasty. This procedure treats cosmetic or functional deformities that were not corrected or unfortunately made worse. Revision rhinoplasty requires your surgeon to carefully handle the new existing scar tissue when reshaping the nose a second time. If you are considering revision rhinoplasty, you must wait at least one year after your last rhinoplasty procedure to ensure the nose has properly healed and no complications ensue.
How to Address the Cost
When looking into any surgical procedure, it is essential that you select a surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty, like Dr. Clark, to make sure you have a successful and affordable procedure.
Do Your Research
Before any surgery can take place, do your research about the procedure and the surgeon you are considering. You can browse through their website and compare before and after photos from other surgeons to help you get an idea about what the outcome of your results may look like. You can also see if there is any information listed on their website about the cost of revision rhinoplasty. Making a list of potential surgeons you wish to speak with is also a good way to narrow down who can provide you with the best results at a reasonable price. Once you have this figured out, then it is time to schedule a consultation with your potential surgeon.
Talk With Your Doctor
Building trust with your doctor during your consultation is an excellent way to talk about the financial policies and techniques they offer. Be sure you discuss the following questions and concerns when talking to your surgeon:
- How much does revision rhinoplasty typically cost?
- What areas of my nose need to be addressed?
- What went wrong with my previous surgery?
- Are there any specials or discounts that you can offer?
Understanding Your Options
Going over all medical costs and fees that will be required is the last and most crucial step to your revision rhinoplasty. It is also important that you and your surgeon go over each payment option that is provided. Knowing which payment plan and surgical technique will best address your concerns and provide you with the results you desire will help put your mind and wallet at ease.
