An authentic portrait of young woman.

Successful rhinoplasty has a positive impact on the overall appearance of the face. In most cases, those who have a nose job performed are happy with their results when they choose a talented facial plastic surgeon. Unfortunately, some patients are unsatisfied with their outcomes if they did not choose their surgeon wisely. Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics has extensive experience in performing rhinoplasty with phenomenal results. When needed, he can also repair a previous nose job through a rhinoplasty revision to help his patients finally enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, functional nose.

Up to 15% of primary nose jobs require revisions for one reason or another. For the majority of people, the second surgery has to do with a specific cosmetic issue, such as a twisted tip or a functional issue like difficulty breathing. The problems may not be the fault of the original surgeon. Not every aspect of healing is under the surgeon’s control, and some anatomical variations can pose particular surgical problems.

The revision procedure is much more complicated than the primary rhinoplasty. It requires a surgeon, like Dr. Linkov, with a sophisticated understanding of nasal structure and expert surgical technique. It is important to have an open and honest discussion with Dr. Linkov about your expectations and goals. This will help achieve a successful procedure and uncomplicated rhinoplasty recovery with your secondary procedure.

Common Rhinoplasty Problems

A successful nose job should look natural and blend with the rest of the facial features. When a rhinoplasty is overdone, poor techniques are used or healing does not go as planned, the results are often noticeable. Some of the common complaints from poor nose job recipients include:

  • A pinched appearance
  • Collapsed or saddle nose
  • Upturned or twisted nose tip
  • Bumpy, deviated or twisted bridge
  • Nasal valve collapse

While rhinoplasty revision is complicated, Dr. Linkov has the experience and skill to help patients who are unhappy with their previous nose job results. If you want to explore rhinoplasty revision, contact City Facial Plastics on the Upper East Side of Manhattan to schedule an appointment with Dr. Linkov.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.
