Revision and primary rhinoplasty are two of the procedures that Dr. Weber focuses on. Revision rhinoplasty can be especially challenging as the procedure involves replacing critical nasal structure and refining shape and contour deformities resulting from previous surgery. Each time that a person’s nose is operated on any subsequent surgery becomes more complicated and the healing process more unpredictable. For this reason, if you require revision rhinoplasty, you should consult with a surgeon who focuses on cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the nose. Dr. Weber is considered a “Top Rhinoplasty Doctor” by RealSelf.com.
I found Dr. Weber to have everything I was looking when it came to plastic surgeons. He was professional, caring, honest and from others who had surgery performed by him, he is extremely talented. Both he and his staff are 5-star.
Last Sept (2013), I had a face/neck lift done by Dr. Weber. After consultations with plastic surgeons in 4 states including Montana, I had made up my mind that Dr. Weber was definitely the 'one'. I traveled from Montana which is a 2-day trip one way and I am so thankful that I did. A superior facelift is what I ended up with and how I knew it was superior is that I had just turned 66 but no one could tell. The face lift was so natural.... everyone wanted to know how I managed to stay so young looking. I'm not the type just to say 'thank you' and move on......I want to share my story with everyone because when a person finally finds a great surgeon, others deserve to know.
I will see Dr. Weber next month to get some botox, juvederm and perhaps a little Voluma. Oh sure, I can everything done in Montana but why, when I know Dr. Weber will do the best job. So far, it's unanimous .......he's worth the trip.
Dr. Weber’s goal with revision rhinoplasty is to achieve the results that you sought with the initial surgery. However, in some cases of revision rhinoplasty, the goal becomes improvement in the appearance of the nose and refinement of the initial surgical result. For this reason, a detailed in-person examination and consultation are critical to the surgical process. It is very important to determine your goals for surgery and to define expectations in terms of what is and is not possible for revision rhinoplasty. Video imaging can be very helpful in these situations to demonstrate typical revision rhinoplasty results and to discuss whether these results will meet or exceed a person’s expectations for their surgical result.
There is an incision inside each nostril and, in some instances, a small incision between the nostrils. “Dissolving” sutures are used to carefully close these incisions and do not require removal. “Packing” is never placed inside the nose. Delicate tape and a flexible nasal splint are used to minimize swelling and hold your new nose in place while you heal. This splint is removed by Dr. Weber 5 – 7 days following surgery. Swelling, congestion and bruising peak during the first three days after surgery and then steadily resolve.
Frequent revision rhinoplasty requests include:
- Reducing a bump on the nasal bridge
- Refining the bulbous or large nasal tip
- Improvement in the pinched or over-operated nasal tip
- Refinement of post-surgical scarring
- Narrowing or straightening the nasal bridge
- Rotating the droopy tip or eliminating the tip droop when smiling
- Additional reduction of the size of the nose
- Improvement in wide or flared nostrils
- Improvement in nasal breathing, snoring and “sinus congestion”
