Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries worldwide. While many patients achieve their desired results, some unfortunately experience complications or unsatisfactory outcomes, leading to the need for revision rhinoplasty. At The Beverly Hills Center, Dr. Ben Talei specializes in revision rhinoplasty, helping patients achieve the look they originally desired. In this blog, we’ll explore the top three reasons for failed rhinoplasty and how Dr. Talei can help.

1. Over-Resection of Nasal Structures

One of the most common reasons for failed rhinoplasty is the over-resection of nasal structures. This occurs when too much cartilage or bone is removed during the initial surgery, leading to structural weaknesses and aesthetic issues such as:

  • Collapsed Nostrils: Over-resection can cause the nostrils to collapse, making breathing difficult.
  • Scooped or Pinched Nose: Excessive removal can result in a nose that looks overly scooped or pinched, detracting from the natural appearance.

Solution with Dr. Ben Talei: Dr. Ben Talei uses advanced techniques to restore the structural integrity and aesthetics of the nose. During revision rhinoplasty, he may use cartilage grafts to rebuild and support the nasal framework, ensuring a balanced and natural look.

2. Inadequate Healing or Scar Tissue Formation

Another common issue leading to rhinoplasty failure is inadequate healing or excessive scar tissue formation. Every individual’s healing process is unique, and sometimes the body produces more scar tissue than expected, which can distort the final results of the surgery.

  • Scar Tissue Build-Up: Excessive scar tissue can lead to unevenness and irregularities in the nose.
  • Asymmetry: Inadequate healing can cause asymmetry, where the nose appears lopsided or misshapen.

Solution with Dr. Ben Talei: Dr. Talei carefully assesses the underlying issues caused by scar tissue or poor healing. His meticulous approach to revision rhinoplasty includes techniques to remove or reshape scar tissue and correct asymmetries, resulting in a more harmonious and symmetrical appearance.

3. Unrealistic Expectations or Poor Surgical Technique

Sometimes, failed rhinoplasty results from a combination of unrealistic expectations and poor surgical technique. Patients may have expectations that are not aligned with what is surgically feasible, or the initial surgery might have been performed by a less experienced surgeon, leading to suboptimal results.

  • Unnatural Appearance: Poor surgical technique can lead to an unnatural, overdone appearance.
  • Functional Problems: In addition to aesthetic concerns, poor technique can cause functional issues, such as breathing difficulties.

Solution with Dr. Ben Talei: Dr. Ben Talei emphasizes the importance of realistic expectations and open communication. He conducts thorough consultations to understand each patient’s goals and provides expert guidance on achievable results. With his extensive experience and refined surgical skills, Dr. Talei performs revision rhinoplasty to correct both aesthetic and functional issues, ensuring a natural and pleasing outcome.
