F M Kamer, S A McQuown
Archives of Otolaryngology—Head & Neck Surgery 1988, 114 (3): 257-66
As rhinoplasty becomes an increasingly popular procedure, the aesthetic expectations of both the facial plastic surgeon and the patient become more discriminating. Thus, the number of revision rhinoplasties increases. Of 697 rhinoplasties performed by the senior author (F.M.K.) during a three-year period, 18% of those procedures were revision surgeries. The senior author was the primary surgeon in 53% of those revision cases. This article presents an analysis of 126 consecutive revision rhinoplasty cases from that period, outlining the major deformities in a clinically meaningful system. Treatment of each problem category is discussed and representative cases are shown. The senior author's own revision rate and observations are discussed and compared with those in the medical literature.
