If you have had a previous rhinoplasty done and have become unhappy with the results, there is an option available to you. Revision rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that helps to alter the results from a previous rhinoplasty. The rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is used to improve the shape, size, proportion, and functionality of the nose. Many people are satisfied with their primary nose surgery results, but if not, or if an injury is sustained that changes the results, then a revision procedure can be done. Patients from the Arlington, TX area can receive a revision rhinoplasty procedure at Accent On You.

To show that you have gained better results from your revision rhinoplasty, we will take photographs before and after for comparison. Revision rhinoplasty is a very complex procedure.

We want to make sure that each patient is comfortable going into the procedure and knows what results to expect. That is why our consultations are so detailed and you are welcome to tour our surgical facility.
