I had a difficult recovery after rhinoplasty, I am worried about have further surgery…
Many of our patients are anxious with revision surgery, they did not have the result they were looking after the first surgery and are worried about undergoing further treatment. Dr De Silva takes time to ensure we provide a thorough discussion regarding further treatment, recovery and offering emotional support before and after surgery. Our aim is to provide the best possible experience and to foster a long-term relationship with our patients to provide ongoing care for years to come.
Will I be happy after revision rhinoplasty?
Dr De Silva only provides patients with sincere information on results from revision surgery, and a minority of patients he advises against surgery. Although most patients’ symptoms can be improved substantially it is important to have a discussion regarding realistic expectations, as previous scarring cannot be reversed only improved. A small proportion of patients may require two procedures.
What is the worst complication?
After a thorough examination most serious issues can be excluded (nasal collapse, breathing issues). The key aspects are recovery often takes longer with the final result as long as 18-24months after surgery. In addition, realistic expectations for improvement are important to discuss.
