Secondary Rhinoplasty in Turkey

A secondary rhinoplasty is corrective nasal surgery that serves to alter the form and/or function of the nose after a previous rhinoplasty. Secondary aesthetic and reconstructive nasal re-shaping is indicated for cosmetic or functional deformities not properly treated or made worse from the primary operation. Some also refer to secondary rhinoplasty as revision rhinoplasty.

Secondary Rhinoplasty - Nose job Operation

The changes necessary in secondary rhinoplasty can be done through a closed or open approach. Typically, if there are major structural changes required, and open approach may be preferred. Minor contour corrections can be performed via a closed technique. Closed rhinoplasty is when only internal incisions are made for access to the nasal structures. Open rhinoplasty refers to the addition of an incision in the skin bridge between the two nostrils in order to lift up the nasal skin for more direct visualization of the structures to be altered. The decision to use either the closed or open approach in revision rhinoplasty is based on surgeon preference.

Secondary Rhinoplasty Aftercare

Secondary Rhinoplasty Aftercare

After the operation, the patient is transported from the operating room to the room wearing a special nasal package. It is removed 6 days after surgery. Its task is to stabilize the nose in the correct position and support the shaping of the nose. More intense exercise is recommended after 6 weeks.


Patients who have undergone a previous rhinoplasty surgery and are experiencing functional or aesthetic issues with their nose are good candidates for secondary rhinoplasty.

The most common reasons for undergoing secondary rhinoplasty include correcting breathing difficulties, addressing asymmetries or irregularities in the nose, and improving the overall appearance of the nose.

Yes, secondary rhinoplasty is generally considered more complicated than primary rhinoplasty because the surgeon must work with scar tissue and altered nasal anatomy. The surgery often requires more specialized techniques and may take longer to perform.

It's generally recommended to wait at least one year after your initial rhinoplasty surgery before undergoing secondary rhinoplasty. This allows enough time for the nasal tissues to heal and stabilize.

Recovery from secondary rhinoplasty can vary depending on the extent of the surgery. Patients should expect some swelling and bruising for several weeks following the procedure. It's important to follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions carefully to ensure optimal healing.
