08 Sep Dr. Rawnsley on Revision Rhinoplasty UPDATE
Rhinoplasty is a difficult surgery to do well. Revision rhinoplasty is even more difficult because you have to deal with a lot of issues that you don’t have to deal with in fresh tissue. You have scar to deal with, you have unknown deformities, you have to be a skilled technician, a skilled surgeon. I have done a lot of revision rhinoplasty. I fixed a lot of people’s problems having been faculty UCLA for many years teaching this to other students, to fellows, you get a lot of experience that’s invaluable for for fixing these kind of problems. The other thing is just volume. For rhinoplasty you just need to do a lot of it to be good at it. Same thing with revision rhinoplasty, you just have to have a lot of experience to know when you face certain situations what to do because there are a myriad of different situations to face. I think for all those reasons people seek me out for revision rhinoplasty.
