Revision Rhinoplasty in Toronto
A lot of people undergo primary rhinoplasty in order to correct superficial deformities in their nose and to improve their physical appearance, which in turn can help to boost their self esteem. Unfortunately, in some cases follow up medical treatments or surgeries are required to correct issues that might arise after or be a direct result of a poorly executed primary rhinoplasty procedure. Revision rhinoplasty, also known as secondary rhinoplasty, is the solution to this problem and it’s become one of the most common types of facial plastic surgery performed in Canada.
If you’ve found yourself the victim of a botched nose job, then it might be time to start looking for a new rhinoplasty surgeon in the GTA. Dr. Andres Gantous is one of the leading revision rhinoplasty surgeons in Toronto and throughout Canada.
What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasty is a procedure that’s used to correct physical issues that are a direct result of a primary or initial rhinoplasty procedure. For instance, during the original treatment, the surgeon might have removed too much or too little cartilage, resulting in polybeak (when the patient’s nose ends up looking like a bird’s beak). Other problems can include retracted nostrils, a pinched nasal tip, open roof deformity, hanging collumella, or an inverted V deformity. It’s possible that the patient may continue to experience these problems even after a second nose surgery, which could necessitate a third rhinoplasty.
Why Choose Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery?
In the unlikely event that complications do arise during the primary rhinoplasty surgery, a revision rhinoplasty could be necessary and this isn’t just for the sake of vanity. A botched nose job can have a seriously negative impact on your overall quality of life, especially the way you view yourself. It can lead to great emotional problems and an overgrowth of scar tissue in the damaged area can severely hinder your breathing which will lead to a host of other health problems, most notably trouble falling and staying asleep, among others.

How Much Does Revision Rhinoplasty Cost in Toronto?
The cost of revision rhinoplasty ranges depending on the extent of the correction required. Any reputable nose plastic surgery clinic in Ontario should give you a thorough and honest assessment prior to commencing treatment so that they can offer you a fair price. In some cases, if the procedure is a medical necessity, a portion of it might be covered by your healthcare provider or insurance. However, if it’s strictly a cosmetic procedure, then you’ll most likely have to pay the full amount out-of-pocket.
