Dr. Tripathi Restores Confidence with Precision and Expertise

Revision rhinoplasty, also known as secondary rhinoplasty, is a specialized surgical procedure designed to address issues resulting from a previous rhinoplasty or correct new concerns that have arisen since the initial surgery. 

When performed by an experienced and skilled surgeon like Dr. Prem Tripathi at Bay Hills Plastic Surgery, revision rhinoplasty can restore the nose's functionality and aesthetics. Our revision rhinoplasty in Danville and East Bay offers patients renewed confidence and a harmonious facial appearance.

The Importance of Revision Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is one of the most intricate and complex plastic surgery procedures. Sometimes a primary rhinoplasty may not meet the patient's expectations, and they may experience post-surgery complications or simply change their preferences over time. 

It can be difficult to trust a surgeon after a rhinoplasty went wrong – that’s when you need the caring and expertise of Dr. Tripathi.

When Is Revision Rhinoplasty Necessary?

Unsatisfactory Results: If a patient is unhappy with the outcome of their primary rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty can help correct the issues and provide the desired results.

Functional Concerns: Some patients experience breathing difficulties due to an unsuccessful primary rhinoplasty, requiring revision to restore proper nasal function.

Change in Goals: Over time, an individual's aesthetic preferences can evolve, and revision rhinoplasty can help align the nose with their new desires.

Complications: Rarely, complications such as infection or implant displacement may arise from a primary rhinoplasty. Revision surgery can correct these issues.

The Revision Rhinoplasty Process

The revision rhinoplasty procedure is comprehensive and tailored to the specific needs and concerns of each patient. Here is an overview of the process:


The journey begins with a one-on-one consultation with your expert surgeon, Dr. Tripathi. During this discussion, the patient can share their concerns, goals, and expectations for the revision rhinoplasty. Dr. Tripathi conducts a thorough evaluation of the patient's nose to determine the best approach.


To ensure the patient's comfort and safety, revision rhinoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia.


Dr. Tripathi may use an open or closed approach, depending on the specific concerns and goals. 

An open approach involves an incision on the external surface of the nose, while a closed approach involves incisions made inside the nostrils, avoiding external scarring.


Dr. Tripathi skillfully reshapes the bone, cartilage, and soft tissues of the nose to achieve the desired outcomes. This may involve reducing, augmenting, or repositioning these structures to create balance and harmony.


In some cases, revision rhinoplasty may include a septoplasty in Danville or the East Bay to correct a deviated septum, improving both the appearance and functionality of the nose.

Closing Incisions

After completing the necessary adjustments, Dr. Tripathi meticulously closes the incisions to minimize scarring.


Following surgery, the patient is carefully monitored in a recovery area. Most patients can return home on the same day with detailed post-operative instructions to facilitate healing.

What to Expect from Your Recovery—and Your Results

Recovery from your revision nose surgery in Danville and the East Bay can be uncomfortable, but you will be supported by your doctor and care team throughout. By following instructions, you can minimize downtime and help ensure your best, lasting results.

  • Swelling and Bruising: Swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes are common and may peak in the first few days post-surgery before gradually subsiding. Dr. Tripathi may recommend cold compresses to alleviate swelling.
  • Nasal Packing: In some cases, internal splints or nasal packing may be used to support the nasal structures during healing. These are typically removed within a week.
  • Dressings and Splints: External dressings and splints may be placed on the nose to maintain its new shape. These are generally removed within a week.
  • Recovery Timeline: While the initial recovery period lasts about one to two weeks, the complete resolution of swelling and bruising may take several weeks to several months. The results of revision rhinoplasty may become fully apparent after several months.

Follow-up: Dr. Tripathi and his team will closely monitor the patient's recovery, ensuring they are healing well and addressing any questions or concerns that may arise.
