If you have undergone facial plastic surgery and experienced less improvement than desired or have had a complication, you may be a candidate for revision surgery. You may be a candidate for revision or tuck surgery or simply a different procedure if you have:
- Undesirable nose shape or breathing problems after rhinoplasty.
- Brows that are too low or uneven after browlift.
- Rounding (pulling down) of the lower eyelids after eyelid lifting (blepharoplasty).
- Alteration of the hairline or loss of hair after browlift or facelift.
- Persistent fullness of the nasolabial fold after facelift surgery.
- Persistent fullness under the chin after face and neck lift or neck contouring surgery.
- Significant neck skin laxity after face and neck lift.
- Facial asymmetry after any procedure.
- Deformity after skin cancer surgery.
Plastic surgery is a precision discipline; however it is also an art that is subject to a variety of factors. Patient factors include each patient’s healing response and tissue integrity (negatively affected by advancing age, smoking, extensive sun damage, etc). Procedure-related factors may include too little or too much tissue rearrangement, removal or tightening despite your surgeon’s best effort to do just the right amount in this regard — your results will be uniquely yours.
The need or desire to have a revision or tuck procedure does not mean that your surgeon performed below a certain standard of care. It is much more likely that your surgeon attempted to do just the right amount while being careful not do too much.
Patients seeking aesthetic and/or reconstructive plastic surgery need to accept the fact that a revision or tuck may be necessary to achieve the optimal result. Some patients do very well with a specific procedure while others achieve only partial improvement with the same procedure. Part of the art of plastic surgery involves being relatively certain that a specific procedure will give a particular patient the desired improvement, but also knowing what else can or should be done if the result is for any reason less than satisfactory.
