Are you unhappy with the results of rhinoplasty surgery? Is your newly-enhanced nose still too big for your face, or did the procedure fail to correct the feature that bothers you? Are you experiencing breathing problems since your surgery?

If you can relate to any of these scenarios, you may be a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Ary Krau. Revision rhinoplasty is designed to restore optimal structure and function to the nose after a failed procedure.

In this blog post, Dr. Krau will address reasons you might need the procedure. You can learn more by scheduling a one-on-one revision rhinoplasty consultation at our Miami plastic surgery practice.

Overcorrection or Undercorrection

Your primary rhinoplasty surgeon may not have had the experience or skill necessary to perform the complex nose reshaping procedure. S/he may have used ineffective techniques or failed to understand your aesthetic objectives, and consequently overcorrected or undercorrected certain aspects of your nose. Examples include incomplete removal of a bothersome bump and inadequate resizing of the nose.


A successful rhinoplasty result is never a given; that’s the nature of surgery. A rhinoplasty surgeon can perform a textbook-perfect procedure, and complications may still arise (though this scenario is rare). Perhaps the wound left by the incision did not heal properly;  or maybe you developed breathing problems through your nostrils after surgery.

General Dissatisfaction with the Results

It is also possible that your original rhinoplasty surgeon performed the procedure perfectly, and you did not develop any complications after surgery, but you are still dissatisfied with your results. Maybe your nose doesn’t quite “fit” with or flatter the rest of your face.

How Revision Rhinoplasty Can Help

The goal of revision rhinoplasty is to refine the results of primary rhinoplasty, or address complications that arose after surgery. During consultation, Dr. Krau will ask you to explain why you are unhappy with the results of your first nose surgery. He will also ask you to describe your expectations of revision rhinoplasty. Then, he will use this information to draft a treatment plan for surgery.

Though there are challenges with revision rhinoplasty — specifically, the presence of scar tissue or, in some cases, less nasal cartilage to work with — Dr. Krau will work around these obstacles to produce results that you truly love.

You’ve already had one procedure fail to produce the desired outcomes, so it is imperative that you choose the right surgeon to perform your revision surgery. Dr. Krau is the surgeon Miami revision rhinoplasty patients trust. To book a consultation with Dr. Krau, please contact his office by calling (305) 861-6881.
