Learning About Tattoo Removal

Hello, my name is Molly. When I was a young teen, I thought it was unendingly cool to tattoo myself with band quotes and interesting symbols. I did not care about placement or ink spread. In fact, I did not worry about the impact of those tattoos at all. Unfortunately, upon graduating college, I was covered in tattoos that were making it difficult to find a job in my field. Luckily, I was able to undergo tattoo removal procedures to remove the ink from my body. I will use my website to help other people understand the process of having their tattoos professionally removed. Please visit again soon.

Signs You Might Need Revision Rhinoplasty


Rhinoplasty refers to the surgery that alters the shape of your nose to increase the nose's appearance or improve breathing. However, the initial surgery isn't always fulfilling hence the need for a secondary rhinoplasty. Here are the signs that you require revision rhinoplasty surgery.

Breathing Difficulty

In some cases, the initial rhinoplasty may lead to functional problems of your nose, such as breathing problems. Such issues can cause discomfort and consequently affect the quality of your life. Hence, you may be confined indoors or have to carry an inhaler wherever you go. If you're experiencing breathing difficulty since your first rhinoplasty surgery, a revision may be necessary to correct the problems.

Poor Aesthetic Outcome

You may not be satisfied with the initial rhinoplasty results. Perhaps you wanted a sharp and longer nose, but your nose looks flat after surgery.  Before concluding, however, note that the results show a few months after the surgery when the swelling goes down, and the nose heals fully. If the healing period is over, and you aren't satisfied with how your nose looks and feels, consider revision rhinoplasty.


Complications may emerge during the primary rhinoplasty. For instance, nose implants may shift following the surgery resulting in poor results. Also, you may experience post-surgery complications such as excessive nose bleeding. In such cases, revision rhinoplasty is necessary to correct these complications.

Post-surgery Accidents

You may have an accident after rhinoplasty surgery that impacts the shape and functionality of your nose. For instance, your nose may become crooked or develop a bump making it look unappealing. Besides, the uneven areas may block your nostrils, resulting in breathing issues. This could be devastating, especially if the initial rhinoplasty yielded your desired results. Therefore, if you've experienced an accident that damages your nose, consider revision rhinoplasty.

Ethnic Characteristics Loss

You may have had your first rhinoplasty to preserve your ethnic characteristics. Ideally, each ethnic group has unique nasal features. For instance, Hispanics, Asians, and Africans usually have a broad nasal base and thicker skin. Hence, if you're of this ethnic descent and want a narrow nasal base or tip, your surgeon must use a different technique than that for Caucasian patients. If the first rhinoplasty makes you feel like you've lost your ethnic characteristics, get a revision rhinoplasty to restore your ethnic traits.

The common signs that you need revision rhinoplasty include breathing difficulty, poor aesthetic outcomes, ethnic characteristics loss, post-surgery accidents, and complications. Consider getting revision rhinoplasty surgery when you see these signs.
