Rib Graft Revision Rhinoplasty
A previous rhinoplasty that utilized rib grafts may result in aesthetic and functional issues such as visible irregularities, asymmetric nostrils, or a distorted nasal shape. Additionally, the rib grafts may shift or move over time, which can cause further complications. A rib graft revision can correct these issues and restore a natural-looking, functional nasal contour.
A rib graft revision procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia, and the specific details of the surgery will depend on the individual case. In general, the procedure involves removing or reshaping the existing rib grafts, correcting any asymmetry or irregularities, and restoring a natural-looking nasal contour. Recovery time can vary, but most patients can return to work or school within two weeks of the procedure.
