Revision Rhinoplasty

The nose is the central, most prominent feature of the face and a major influence in defining balance and facial harmony.

When the nose does not complement the face, it may detract from one's overall appearance. Facial attractiveness is elusive without a nose that is in harmony with surrounding facial features. To that end, the goal of cosmetic rhinoplasty is to create a nose which establishes or maintains balance and harmony with the rest of the face.

Every year, half a million people who are interested in improving the appearance of their noses seek consultation with facial plastic surgeons. Some are unhappy with the noses they were born with, and some with the way aging has changed their nose. For others, an injury may have distorted the nose, or the goal may be improved breathing. But one thing is clear: nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration can greatly improve one's appearance.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Dr. Pearson's practice offers Revision Rhinoplasty, as well as cosmetic, functional and reconstructive rhinoplasty.

Revision rhinoplasty entails operating on a nose that has undergone prior surgery. Revision rhinoplasty presents an already challenging operation with an additional complement of issues. Nasal surgeons without advanced rhinoplasty training and substantial experience often will not undertake such revision cases.

Dr. Pearson's Philosophy Regarding Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

Dr. Pearson understands that people want to look like themselves, only better - that is, the best version of themselves. The goal of Cosmetic Rhinoplasty is to retain your unique facial features, while simultaneously minimizing those unfavorable characteristics which detract from facial balance.

The goal of Rhinoplasty is not to look different, just better. In particular, one should never look 'done' or 'surgerized.' as a result of plastic surgery. In order to achieve that, the surgeon needs to avoid the tell-tale signs of surgery.

A superior Rhinoplasty result is usually not even perceived as having resulted from surgery. Onlookers usually comment that our patients look refreshed, or especially well-rested as if having recently returned from a vacation without assuming that it involved surgery.
