The motivation needed to undergo a revision rhinoplasty
Are you looking to improve or correct the shape and size of your nose? If so, then go through this article as you may find my situation similar to yours. Three years ago I underwent a rhinoplasty surgery as I had a big and asymmetric nasal tip; rhinoplasty was the only way to get rid of a crooked nose and get an attractive nose of my choice. After consulting several cosmetic surgeons, I finally subjected myself to this amazing procedure. It took almost six months for the post-operative nose to appear completely.

I realized, unfortunately, the surgeon had removed some extra cartilage and tissue from the problem area, making the nose too small on my face. At first I panicked a lot, just like any other girl of my age would do so, but after discussing my concerns with an online friend who had undergone revision rhinoplasty I felt relaxed. Finally, with consent from my family I underwent a secondary rhinoplasty surgery and today I have the nose which I always desired since I was a child. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your primary rhinoplasty, you can always consider revision rhinoplasty. Revision rhinoplasty is performed to re-do the earlier rhinoplasty procedure for making required adjustments to the nose.

Before contemplating revision rhinoplasty, it is vital that you settle for an experienced revision rhinoplasty specialist since a secondary rhinoplasty is more complicated than a primary rhinoplasty procedure. Moreover, surgeons have to be extra careful as there is usually a lot of scar tissue from the earlier procedure. Even the surgeons nowadays advocate revision procedure if the primary objectives are not met or if you experience any breathing difficulties after the first surgery. You should only take the advice of a surgeon that performs this kind of surgery regularly.

Revision rhinoplasty is considered one of the most difficult surgeries since it requires a clear understanding of the strength and structure of the nose along with having a good aesthetic judgment. Try to select a surgeon who has a background in Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgery (otolaryngology) as they will have a deep-rooted knowledge of aesthetics. In addition, ask for some before and after photographs of patients that have undergone revision rhinoplasty by the surgeon. Do not forget to inquire that if the surgeon performs this type of surgery regularly.

Ethnic rhinoplasty: a specialized surgery for addressing the concerns of ethnic group
Of all the medical procedures and surgeries, cosmetic surgery still remains the most explored and desired procedure. Each cosmetic surgery is customized to ensure that the patients get the results that they want. The doctors and surgeons need to take into consideration everything prior to the surgery, including your ethnic background. People of all races opt for rhinoplasty, also called nose job, to correct their misshapen nose or enhance their appearance. Every race has its own unique facial traits; some may feel content with it while many try to get over their insecurities with the help of ethnic rhinoplasty. The goal of an ethnic rhinoplasty is to bring the nose in harmony with the rest of the face, whilst retaining their exclusive ethnic nose features.

No matter to which background you belong, rhinoplasty can help to give you a symmetrical and attractive look. Patients need to understand that by undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure you will improve the way your nose looks, rather than completing erasing the signs of your ethnicity from your face. The rhinoplasty specialists often get pressure from different places to craft a nose which looks in a specific way; hence ethnic rhinoplasty is touted as one of the most complex cosmetic surgeries worldwide. Ethnic rhinoplasty techniques are commonly used for Hispanic, African American and Asian noses. The patients tend to have unique expectations from the surgery, for instance, a Middle Eastern rhinoplasty usually includes narrowing the nostrils, raising the tip and correcting a droop.

A flat nose is a common occurrence in many ethnic people, which is managed by grafting cartilage from other places in the body to give the nose a more refined appearance. In some cases, the nostrils are clearly wide which is narrowed down during the surgery. Before undergoing ethnic rhinoplasty, doctor will carefully assess your skin type, color and skin thickness. He will also evaluate the cartilage, nasal bone and the unique structure of your nose. This will help him to understand the anatomy of your ethnicity. For example, most of the Hispanic noses have thick skin, broad makeup and a drooping tip. Hispanic rhinoplasty in New York is famous for providing the minute details of their technique, such as limitations and the benefits, during the initial consultation with the patient so that there is no scope of complications post-surgery.
