Revision Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is the most technically challenging aesthetic surgical procedure. Dr. Wong has been in practice at UC Irvine since 1997, and difficult nasal cases have been a major part of his clinical work. Successful rhinoplasty strives to achieve creation of an aesthetically pleasing nasal contour combined with a patent airway. Revision or secondary rhinoplasty surgery is aimed at correcting both contour and shape, and at the same time creating a new airway. Revision rhinoplasty corrects the unintended outcomes produced by previous surgery. Dr. Wong's training as a head and neck surgeon makes him ideal to treat the nose from the inside as well as the outside. Revision rhinoplasty requires a structural approach to the nose. It is imperative that the underlying cartilage and bone frameworks that provide the structural support to the subtle aesthetic features of the nose are properly identified and then corrected. Soft tissue and skin need to be treated with attention and detail. Aesthetics are rooted in structure as form and function are interlocked.
