What is Revision Rhinoplasty?

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.

Patient Review

I had a pretty bad deviated septum and trouble breathing since I broke my nose when I was 5 years old. I spent years going to doctors trying to get some relief. Thankfully I was referred to Dr. Sundine, who took one look at me and knew what my problem was. He performed a septoplasty and rhinoplasty surgery in June 2020, and my nose looks amazing and I can finally breathe. My surgery was quick and easy. I had some swelling, no bruising, and no bleeding. After my splints were removed I felt amazing. I can’t thank Dr. Sundine enough. Not only do I feel better but I now have a straight nose that I love. It was scary only being 18 years old and having to go through surgery but Dr. Sundine and his staff were the best. – Alexa V.

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 the 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 on 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.

Patient Reviews & Testimonials


    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. I figured if he was so skilled that he could perform such incredibly difficult procedures on a child, I was confident he could perform a face lift with which I would be happy. The results were so far beyond my expectations that I could hardly believe. I look literally ten years younger. I am incredibly happy with the results and they seem to get better and better as the healing continues. I never had a problem getting a return call or making an appointment. Dr. Sundine is always pleasant and answers all of my questions. I would recommend him to anyone!!!

  • "Thanks, Dr. Sundine!"

    After much research and multiple visits to other surgeons, I knew right away that Dr. Sundine was the perfect choice for me. He is gentle and kind and genuinely listens to you. I felt completely confident in his ability from the first visit to the last. Even the day of the procedure, he spent ample time talking to me, taking measurements, and making marks on my body so as to get the perfect results. I have been singing his praises to all of my friends and will recommend him to anyone searching for a plastic surgeon. Thanks, Dr. Sundine!

They really listen to your needs before and after surgery to make certain that you walk out fully satisfied. If you want to look years younger and fully refreshed I highly recommend that you use his services. This is not your typical Newport Beach plastic surgeon’s office. Patients walk out looking naturally gorgeous, not overdone like some of the women in Orange County! The office offers a full range of injectables, peels, and lasers in addition to major cosmetic surgery procedures. Whether you need a little tweak or surgery this is the physician that you should see!
