Rhinoplasty is a procedure in which a surgeon repairs or reshapes the external nose.

A revision rhinoplasty is an operation performed to reshape the nose and a patient who has had at least one prior operation performed to reshape the nose and generally, patients who consider revision rhinoplasty are patients who are dissatisfied with their previous operation, perhaps because not enough was done in the first operation. In some cases, too much was taken away in the first operation and in other cases there is nasal dysfunction as a result of the prior operation. The greatest challenge with revision rhinoplasty has to do with the fact that there has been a prior surgery.
