Revision rhinoplasty restores structure and strength to the nose to improve nasal airflow. Form and function are directly correlated, so improving nasal function also enhances the appearance of the nose and vice versa so you can breathe easier after the procedure.

A Personal Consultation With Dr. Pearlman
How it Works
Establish Your Goals
Full Nose Examination & Imaging
Determine Mutual Goals
Dr. Pearlman will begin your consultation listening to your concerns about your nose, specific issues you are looking to resolve, and your desired results from revision rhinoplasty.
Based upon your unique nasal anatomy, intricacies of the nose, and your own goals, he will then perform a full examination of your nose inside and out.
Using advanced Mirror® 2D, Dr. Pearlman will demonstrate the potential changes to your nose to help you envision your future results with revision. The use of this technology is vital to understanding not only the potential changes and improvements to the nose itself, but also to visualize your new nose with the rest of your facial features.
Lastly, you and Dr. Pearlman will establish mutual goals to enhance the appearance and breathing function of your nose through revision rhinoplasty.
The right revision rhinoplasty surgeon for you should be able to provide a wealth of information regarding your procedure, especially since this particular procedure can be so complex.
Throughout your revision rhinoplasty consultation at our NYC office, we highly encourage you to ask any and every question on your mind. We will walk you through every step of the process so you can feel confident in your decision to receive a revision rhinoplasty by Dr. Steven Pearlman.
Revision Rhinoplasty Recovery
Dr. Pearlman and his staff will closely guide you through your post operative care. He will provide detailed instructions on all aspects of the process to help guide your recovery.
The incision heals so that it is barely visible, if at all and only when viewed up close and from below the nose. Dr. Pearlman often says “someone will have to be close enough to be able to count your nasal hairs to see this incision.”
What To Expect
Your first visit to our office will be scheduled for one week post-op, when we remove the cast and any external sutures used (in open rhinoplasty and alarplasty).
In addition, the nose is cleaned and carefully suctioned internally.
Subsequent visits are at 2 and 6 months, and one year post-op for photographs. Most patients will see 85% of their results at 1 month out, 95% of results at 6 months out and 95% at 1 year.
Stellar Results for the New You
To quote one of our revision rhinoplasty patients, [speaking to Dr. Pearlman] “Remember to be the Michelangelo, not the Picasso.”
“Rhinoplasty will improve the appearance and function of your nose so it naturally complements your face. The best noses are the ones that aren’t obvious; that respect your ethnic identity. Surgery is tailored to each patient’s needs and desires, creating a more harmonious appearance.”

Frequently Asked Questions
How soon can I have revision rhinoplasty?
Dr. Pearlman prefers to wait a year before performing complex revision rhinoplasty surgery because noses heal for a full year following a rhinoplasty. It’s important for all the swelling to go down and scar tissue to soften. Sometimes, when the issue is a nasal tip that is too full, this resolves by itself since it can actually take a year or more for all the swelling in the nasal tip to go down.
Is revision rhinoplasty more complicated than primary?
Since Dr. Pearlman is reshaping or substituting for warped, over-resected cartilage and bone, revision rhinoplasty is often more complicated and difficult to perform. Depending on the patient, revision rhinoplasty ranges from a simple shave or a complex reconstruction of the nose. It’s important to address all aspects of the nose to restore a more attractive, functional, and natural-looking nose with a veteran in revision rhinoplasty like Dr. Pearlman.
What are the choices for grafts in revision rhinoplasty?
Dr. Pearlman prefers your own cartilage to foreign materials for grafts in revision rhinoplasty. Preferences include nasal septal cartilage, ear cartilage, and rib cartilage – in that order. The choice depends on how much cartilage you need, how strong, and what needs to be done to the nose.
What is a revision rhinoplasty cartilage graft?
Grafts are materials, usually from your own tissue, such as cartilage, that is taken from one place and put in another for support of nasal structures. When properly harvested, you won’t miss the cartilage from the source.
The first source we look to for grafts is your own nasal septum. We often remove septal cartilage to fix a “deviated septum.” Ear cartilage can be used in some cases. When ear cartilage is taken, after a few months no one will be able to tell. Dr. Pearlman also uses rib cartilage with minimal scars and no chest wall deformity as well. It may sound aggressive, but rib cartilage harvest has no detriment on the body and has little more discomfort than the nasal surgery.
What will the first week of recovery entail?
You will have some bruising and swelling around the eyes during the first week of recovery. Some patients need time to adjust to breathing through their mouth; it’s akin to having a mild cold. Fatigue from the anesthesia is common for the first day or two. Patients should rest the first few days in an upright position to minimize swelling for better healing.

To complement a rhinoplasty, some patients choose to receive a chin augmentation or liposuction of the neck. Chin augmentation is the procedure most commonly performed alongside a rhinoplasty; approximately 1 in 5 rhinoplasty patients would benefit from a chin implant to create more balance and symmetry to the face.
