Revision Rhinoplasty Newport Beach

Are you unhappy with the results of your cosmetic nose surgery? This happens to about 15 percent of all nose surgery patients. Nose surgery can deliver great results, but in some cases they are not achieved through the initial procedure. Many patients who undergo nose reshaping surgery decide to undergo a second procedure to further enhance the shape, size or width of the nose. Revision rhinoplasty can also be performed to help patients who are experiencing difficulty breathing as a result of the initial procedure.

Dr. Michael Sundine is a respected Newport Beach revision rhinoplasty surgeon who can help you address any aesthetic concerns resulting from primary rhinoplasty.

To learn more about secondary rhinoplasty surgery, please read the paragraphs below. To schedule your consultation with Dr. Sundine, please contact his practice at 949 706 3100.

Is Secondary Rhinoplasty Safe?

Secondary nose surgery, also called revision rhinoplasty, is safe only after the final results of primary rhinoplasty are apparent. This means a revision procedure should not be performed within the first 12 to 18 months after initial surgery. Dr. Sundine will carefully examine your nose and ask you about your first surgery. He will also ask you about your goals and determine if the results you are looking for can be achieved.

The Secondary Rhinoplasty Surgery in Newport Beach

Revision rhinoplasty surgery is always performed using the open rhinoplasty approach. To perform this procedure, Dr. Sundine makes small incisions along the vertical strip of skin separating the nostrils. The skin and soft tissues are then folded back to expose the underlying cartilage and bone for easier reshaping.

Revision rhinoplasty surgery is performed under general anesthesia at a local hospital or accredited outpatient surgical facility. You will be able to go home the same day.

Recovering from Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery

Your recovery will greatly depend on the degree of correction that was performed. However, in most cases, recovering from this procedure is not much different than recovering from the previous surgery. Your nose will be bandaged up and a splint will be placed for a few days. You will be given medicine and painkillers to keep you comfortable. Swelling and bruising are common, but subside gradually. The results may not be visible for a few months, but you will be able to return to work and other daily activities within a couple of weeks. Dr. Sundine will monitor your progress for as long as necessary.

    “GREAT PLASTIC SURGEON. I’M GLAD HE DID MY SURGERIES.”

    Excellent. I found Dr. Sundine to be a very competent surgeon and a really good person. His personal manner made a sometimes difficult, time-consuming process (tissue expansion) much easier. I’m glad we pursued the expansion option and I was fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. I recommend Dr. Sundine to anyone who is in need of Plastic / Reconstructive Surgery.

    “DR. SUNDINE IS AN OUTSTANDING DOCTOR”

    Dr. Sundine is an outstanding doctor. His technique, his expertise and the care with which he approached my surgery were exceptional. I wasn’t surprised. I chose him because I knew that his training and skills are terrific. Dr. Sundine and his staff still exceeded my expectations, however, and the complete experience – consultation, surgery and follow-up– have been wonderful. As I did, I encourage everyone to do your due diligence and research alternatives, but at the end of the day there is no better choice than Dr. Sundine. Amazing results…

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    Thank you Dr. Sundine, the friendly staff/ nurses You ALL Rock!! & I couldn’t ask for any better.:)

    “THE RESULTS NOTHING SHORT OF EXCEPTIONAL”

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
