Regardless of the reason, it is important for patients to communicate with the original operating plastic surgeon any concerns or dissatisfaction they may be experiencing. If this is not desirable, or possible Dr. Seify is willing to consult with patients who are considering a revision rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty Revision Consider the Facts
Revision rhinoplasty is always a complex procedure. Existing scar tissue can be troublesome and can affect the complexity of the surgery. If a nasal implant was used patients should be prepared to possibly have it removed or exchanged. There could also be a possibility that Dr. Seify may recommend a septoplasty if there are concerns with the nasal breathing passages. If patients are going to consider rhinoplasty revision they should be able to clearly communicate what they do not like about the existing rhinoplasty and what they would like to change.

Rhinoplasty is one of the best-known procedures offered in plastic surgery. Often referred to by the slang term “nose job” many people equate the surgery to a simple nip and tuck. In reality, the procedure can be quite complex depending on the patients existing nose and the patient’s desires. Much of the end result is heavily dependent upon the expertise and skill of the plastic surgeon. Dr. Seify explains to patients who are considering rhinoplasty surgery that it is critical that their able to clearly explain their expectations.
Rhinoplasty and the Perfect Nose
It is important that patients understand Dr. Seify cannot make a patients nose look like someone else’s nose. Rhinoplasty is actually a nose enhancement and can reshape and redefine the nose but it does have limitations. Dr. Seify encourages patients to be open in discussing their desires and he and his staff work with patients to help understand their expectations. Rhinoplasty patients are also examined for any cartilage or scar tissue that may contribute to breathing problems and if necessary Dr. Seify may recommend a septoplasty which will allow him the opportunity to create better breathing pathways if necessary. For some patients a nasal tip may be recommended to create a more elongated nose. This too, is an enhancement that requires artistic talent and skill so that a natural looking nose is the result.
Rhinoplasty and the Entire Face
For some patients Dr. Seify may recommend a chin implant or chin augmentation to create a better profile once the rhinoplasty has been completed. This is in the best interest of the patient’s overall appearance and Dr. Seify explains to his patients that the best overall appearance for rhinoplasty is created when the plastic surgeon includes the entire face, including the profile, as part of his recommendation. Dr. Seify invites patients to schedule a consultation to see if rhinoplasty is a viable option for them.
Question: I got hit in the nose, and I’m wondering about how I can get it fixed. I don’t want to say i have a deviated septum because I don’t. I can breathe perfectly fine. It’s crooked and ruins my self-esteem. Is there a way to get this fixed off of my insurance? I should be having medicare/medicaid soon.
Will I need to have a nasty crooked scar, or a scar in general, on the tip of my nose even though it isn’t a whole nose fix? This was about a year and 1/2 ago. I know it’s been long, but I have parents that don’t find it very important as much as I do. What do I do to get it back to the way it was? Thanks.
Answer: Fixing a broken nose is mostly covered by insurance companies. Repair of nasal fractures and deviated septum are services covered by the most insurance companies. The incision needed for these surgeries are usually intra-nasal or a very small external incision that is easily hidden.
