Nasal Revision Surgery
An artist and a surgeon
Secondary or revision (nose reshaping) rhinoplasty is a highly technical surgical procedure to restore nasal shape and function when these have been damaged from trauma or previous surgery. Revision nasal surgery requires the highest degree of skill and experience, because scar tissue is more difficult to work with than original tissue, and anatomical "landmarks" have been altered or destroyed during the original surgery.
An accomplished sculptor and painter, Dr. O'Daniel combines those talents with his extraordinary abilities as a physician and surgeon to bring both those essential skills to nasal revision surgery. Because of his board certification in Plastic Surgery as well as Otolaryngology - Head and Neck surgery, he is routinely asked to correct these secondary problems. About 25 percent of Dr. O'Daniel's rhinoplasties performed each year are revision rhinoplasties. Using an open rhinoplasty technique, we use the patient's own cartilage and bone to reconstruct the nose after a suboptimal nasal surgery.
This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and most patients are able to return to work after 7 days.
