There are several important differences between primary rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty. Generally, revision rhinoplasty takes far more time. Due to obstacles posed by scar tissue and the increased complexity of surgery, revision cases require approximately 4-5 hours of total operative time. The greater length of surgery and the presence of pre-existing tissue damage can also equate to a longer period of recovery. Patients with thin, healthy skin may require 6-12 months, whereas patients with thick, scar-prone skin may require up to two years for all manifestations of inflammation to resolve. During your consultation with Dr. Marcus, he will give you his professional recovery estimate, helping you to fully understand your upcoming revision rhinoplasty in Los Angeles.
