Revision Rhinoplasty

I personally feel that the number of cases for Revision Rhinoplasty are on the rise. Reasons being
1. Procedures being performed by unexperienced surgeons. Remember the Rhinoplasty is a highly skilled job. It requires alot of experience. Surgeons require proper training to do a good Rhinoplasty.
2. Rhinoplasty has improved over the period. So previous Rhinoplasty may not appear satisfactory.
3. Unrealistic expectations from the patient. Results not only depend on skill, it also depend on healing process.
4. Rhinoplasty should not be bookish. It should be tailor made according to need of patient.
5. A proper discussion between surgeon and patient is essential for good outcome.
