through Donna’s experience with Revision Rhinoplasty Specialist
Dr. Paul Nassif. Follow Donna as she goes through the process
before, during and after surgery. Listen to what Donna has to say
about Dr. Paul Nassif and his staff in regards to the overall
Patients seeking revision rhinoplasty have a number of
concerns. The foremost is a poor aesthetic and functional result.
Second is often the loss of trust in their first surgeon, and the
third will surgery help improve them or just cause more deformity.
Dr. Nassif and his staff are well trained in helping patients
overcome these fears. They are sensitive to the reluctance patients
have over considering more surgery. The staff will help you feel at
ease from the beginning; recognizing your courage to address the
need for revision surgery and consider improving upon what was your
less than ideal surgical result. Together we can work towards

nose. Revision surgery is about restoring structure and strength.
Finally, I will use the computer image as a goal in surgery.
Often times, patients will bring photos (models, movie stars, etc.)
of what they feel their nose should look like. My goal is to take
what you have and make a moderate, and sometimes, significant

aesthetically pleasing, natural nose.
Following surgery, the
majority of patients have minimal pain. I will ask you to clean your
incisions and the inside of your nose approximately twice a day. You
will be instructed to spray salt water (saline) into your nose with
a spray bottle and a baby bulb syringe. Your cast and the stitches
will be removed in one week (assuming that you are having an open
revision rhinoplasty). For the second week, your nose will be taped.
Following the second week, if needed, I will instruct you on how to
tape your nose nightly to help reduce the swelling. The most
important attribute that you, the patient, can possess following
revision nasal surgery is PATIENCE. It may well take one year for
the swelling to completely resolve. I can promise you that I will do
the best job possible to improve the health of your nose and your
