Dr. Khoobehi has the experience and expertise to not only correct the problem, but create a beautiful, natural looking nose.


While most individuals who have a rhinoplasty are happy with their results, not all surgical outcomes are positive. Dr. Khoobehi welcomes patients from other practices who desire to have a secondary rhinoplasty procedure. Revision rhinoplasty may include corrections that are minor, such as making slight adjustments or reshaping the nasal bone. However, some patients may need severe reconstruction if a significant amount of cartilage and bone were lost during the original surgery.

Full Rhinoplasty Revision

Open rhinoplasty is the ideal technique because it allows Dr. Khoobehi access to the nose’s supporting framework, correcting the internal structure of the nose as originally intended. It may involve re-cutting and reattaching the cartilage or bone. It may even need skin, tissue or fat grafting to make sure the aesthetic intent is achieved.

Touch-Up Rhinoplasty

Similarly, a secondary rhinoplasty may be necessary to adjust minor issues from the initial surgery. It may be a case of slight unevenness or misshapen contours. In these cases, Dr. Khoobehi will perform the touch up as the procedure is less complex and typically involves minor techniques, such as slight shaving of the bone, augmentation or reduction for volume issues.

During/After Surgery

Depending on the condition, revision rhinoplasty may be performed with either a local anesthesia at Dr. Khoobehi accredited surgical suite or general anesthesia at Outpatient Surgical Center.  It is often an outpatient procedure. Just as the initial surgery, there will be bruising and swelling around the face. It is normal to feel anxious about the results of a revision surgery after the results of the original surgery weren’t ideal. Dr. Khoobehi is reputable and has many years of experience with rhinoplasty, the results will be outstanding and more natural looking.

Expected Cost

Depending on the correction being made, a surgery can cost as low as $12,000, or can go on to cost more than $15,000 for the most complex deformity reconstruction. The high-end fees may include costs that come with cartilage or bone grafting and other supplementary procedures such as augmentation or reduction. The lower-end fees are normally only touch up procedures to correct minor aesthetic issues. Dr. Khoobehi is known for his expertise and personalized approach in performing Revision Rhinoplasty.  He works closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals, ensuring that they achieve the best possible outcome.

Better Or Worse?

Revision procedures can be really complex since there is always the possibility of a worse outcome. Dr. Khoobehi has years of experience with this particular treatment and Dr. Khoobehi understands what went wrong with the initial surgery to be able to produce the desired outcome.

Donor Sites?

In cases when there is loss of cartilage or bone, it will be harvested from other parts of the body the ribs or ears for example. The grafted bone or cartilage will make up for the reconstruction of the internal framework of the nose. However, this is only likely in severe botched cases, which accounts for a small rate of rhinoplasty procedures.

Is This Normal?

Revision rhinoplasty is a common occurrence when it comes to cosmetic surgeries; especially minor touch-up procedures, which account for an average of 10% of all rhinoplasty cases. It is normal for some patients to find themselves wanting touch-up rhinoplasty in order to make necessary tweaks that can produce even greater results.
