Nose Revision Surgery
Have you ever been unsatisfied with the results of your rhinoplasty procedure? Do you want more natural facial features but are afraid to undergo surgery the second time around? Don’t worry! Answer Plastic Surgery is the most trusted plastic surgery clinic in South Korea. We provide high-quality services and a high satisfaction rate among our clients. Dr. Min Choi, the head plastic surgeon, is a highly skilled professional with extensive practice and experience in performing successful Rhinoplasty procedures. We ensure you are well guided from your consultation until your recovery from the surgery. Dr. Min Choi conducts an in-depth consultation with you and extensively assesses your nose’s condition. He will then personalize your treatment plan according to your preferences and his evaluation on what method, material, and technique is best performed to achieve the best results.
At Answer Plastic Surgery, we use the Golden Ratio of Rhinoplasty as a guide to designing the ideal nose that best suits your face. According to this guideline, the ideal nose measurements depend on the angle between one’s nose bridge and forehead, nose tip, and upper lip. The ideal height from the forehead to the nose bridge measures 115° ~ 130° angle. And between the nose tip and the upper lip, the ideal angle is at 95° ~ 100°. Through accurate measurements and our Virtual Simulation, Dr. Choi provides a before-and-after image of your nose during the consultation to give you a better understanding of the procedure and an overview of the surgery. He will listen to your concerns and analyze your condition then make the desired nose shape to give you the best results. Dr. Choi performs accurately to ensure minimal side effects so you can recover quickly.
What is Nose Revision Surgery?
Revision Rhinoplasty is usually done to re-evaluate the nose shape to alleviate any issues and failed results caused by previous rhinoplasty procedures. It focuses on improving defects and visible side effects of the initial nose surgery. Nose Revision Surgeries are more challenging and complicated than the first, so it is crucial to have an in-depth discussion with an expert to achieve one’s desired result. Since Revision Rhinoplasty is more complex than initial rhinoplasty procedures, you can expect surgery time to be longer and costs to be higher.
Most revision cases involve unforeseen or unexpected complications, such as aesthetic problems where the nose shape becomes crooked, bent, or alters the balance of the facial features. Sometimes it is caused by less experienced surgeons using subpar techniques. Thus, it is essential to consult a doctor, specifically a plastic surgeon, with sufficient credentials and a higher level of training and experience with revision rhinoplasty procedures.
Nose Revision Surgeries require focus in detecting the issue before surgery and advanced reconstructive techniques to satisfy one’s goal. Also, time is essential when conducting a revision rhinoplasty procedure. Depending on the condition, it is highly recommended to undergo revision rhinoplasty 6 months to 1 year after your first rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Min Choi is an expert in assessing the nose condition and providing a solution that will help improve your nose shape. He will listen to your preferences, incorporate them into your treatment plan, and evaluate the best methods, materials, and techniques to achieve a natural and beautiful nose that suits your facial features.
Good Candidates for Revision Rhinoplasty
Patients with the following nose conditions are highly recommended to undergo Revision Rhinoplasty. If you are still deciding, you can start by booking a consultation with us to know if you are eligible for the procedure.
Nose Revision Surgery Methods
The operation method performed on your nose will depend on your consultation. Since the nose conditions differ for each patient, Dr. Choi will also handle it differently, hence the personalized treatment plan. Answer Plastic Surgery guarantees only advanced techniques will be used to achieve your desired nose shape. The following are different revision cases and methods that can be performed on your nose depending on your treatment plan.
Nose Revision Surgery Details
After your surgery, the nose will undergo significant changes in the first 2 to 12 weeks. You will notice significant swelling and bruising in the surgical area. Taping the bridge of the nose and the supra-tip area (the area above the nose tip) can significantly reduce postoperative swelling. Gentle pressure from the tape can help ‘press’ out some of the swellings that result from trapped fluids in the tissues, and more importantly, the pressure causes the collagen fibers in the scar tissue to become more organized and, as a result, reduce the volume of the swollen area.

Why Choose Answer Plastic Surgery?
Answer Plastic Surgery invests in advanced diagnostic equipment to help the plastic surgeon provide precise measurements when making a personalized plan for the patient. At Answer Plastic Surgery Clinic, a Virtual Simulation is used to view your pre-surgery appearance and what it would look like after the procedure. This helps you understand the surgery better and can be a deciding factor if you do want to undergo a nose job procedure in Korea. Here, at Answer Plastic Surgery, we also use personalized (autologous) cartilage and silicone implants in combination with more advanced surgical techniques.
1. Customized Implants and Cartilage
A unique feature offered by Answer Plastic Surgery to our patients is the suitable cartilage and customized implants used for Nose Revision Surgeries. We offer various choices of implants and cartilage and optimize our options depending on the condition of the patient’s nose. We carefully assess if our patients need a combination of different materials and choose what type of cartilage helps to obtain better results. We also consider the nose’s aesthetic and functional aspects before recommending what is best for the patient.
2. Precise Surgical Incisions Made with Micro-Surgical Instruments
Dr. Choi expertly minimizes the appearance of scars after surgery by utilizing micro-surgical instruments that can hold suture threads precisely and make it easier to perform delicate suturing in such a narrow area. This device is used for externally exposed scars, tissue transplantation, and suturing inside the nose to achieve the best results. The incision does not go all over the nostril; instead, it is carefully done in between (middle part) them so that scars become almost invisible with time.
3. A Pre-Surgery Visualization of the Nose
4. A Harmonized and Proportional Overall Appearance
Answer Plastic Surgery prioritizes our patients’ preferences and recommends the best methods to help them achieve their aesthetic goals. Setting realistic and attainable expectations is also key to producing better results. We ensure that your nose balances your overall facial features, making you look more natural and attractive.
5. Affordable and cost-effective surgical procedures
Answer Plastic Surgery offers the most reasonable price for your Revision Rhinoplasty procedure. Considering that this procedure is to remodify the nose shape from the previous failed surgery, you may have to spend much more than your initial rhinoplasty procedure. The cost of this procedure starts at 10,000 USD, including fees for the surgery, anesthesia, and facility equipment. However, the treatment’s overall price depends on the surgery’s complexity and length and the patient’s nose condition.

Since this would be the second surgery after your primary rhinoplasty procedure, we highly recommend waiting for 6 months to 1 year after your previous surgery. This will ensure that the skin tissues are fully healed from the incisions of the initial procedure and will not cause any complications once you undergo revision rhinoplasty.
There is no specified number of revision rhinoplasties you can get if you are unsatisfied with the results of prior surgeries. However, it is crucial to note that even if you want to undergo revision rhinoplasty for the third or fourth time, it might not be as effective as expected. As with each revision nose job, the more complicated it becomes, the higher the risks one may encounter. Wanting a drastic change might be difficult as the options to alter the nose are limited. However, it will also depend on what kind of revision case it is, if it involves minor correction of the nasal tip or a change of implant material. This is why choosing the right surgeon for your revision rhinoplasty is essential to prevent any further revision surgeries. Consult with our highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Min Choi, for your nose revision surgery. He will help and guide you to achieve your aesthetic goals and guarantee the best results for you.
