Revision Rhinoplasty

Dr. Mark Erlich, a plastic surgery specialist in NYC at Profiles and Contours, performs complex revision rhinoplasty utilizing today's advanced techniques.

New York City, New York (October 2011) – Dr. Mark Erlich, a plastic surgery specialist in NYC at Profiles and Contours, is performing complex revision rhinoplasty for patients who have received unsatisfying results from a primary rhinoplasty. From patients who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose to patients experiencing obstructed breathing due to the initial rhinoplasty, Dr. Erlich at Profiles and Contours is equipped to handle even the most challenging cases. Deviating from the traditional techniques of performing nose surgery, Dr. Erlich and his team are implementing new, advanced techniques that allow for greater correction and beautiful results.

"Revision rhinoplasty is a complex surgical procedure," explains Dr. Erlich. "Over the past thirty years, techniques have evolved, but not every surgeon has kept up with the advances. For that reason, we are known as the specialists in helping patients who want to improve the results of their first rhinoplasty. Their motivations may be cosmetic or physical, as with airway problems that are particularly complicated to repair surgically. Our practice has rhinoplasty experts who are particularly capable in the area of complicated nasal revisions."

Dr. Mark Erlich, founder and director of Profiles and Contours, together with his talented team of rhinoplasty surgeons in NYC, are known for creating beautiful and natural surgical results for their patients. As an authority in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Erlich is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. These certifications represent years of training and experience in the field of plastic surgery. Further, Dr. Erlich remains on the forefront of cosmetic surgery by implementing advanced, modern techniques for performing revision rhinoplasty.

"By implementing new techniques, we are committed to improving the process for revision rhinoplasty," adds Dr. Erlich. "Because the procedure differs for every patient, depending on the degree of nasal correction needed, it is important to always search for ways to improve upon our processes. Helping to reveal a more beautiful contour as well as improve breathing is one of our most important goals when performing revision surgery."

Nasal revision surgery can make a significant difference in a patient's level of satisfaction. While not a means to attain "perfect" results, revision surgery can improve the function and appearance of one's nose after complications from a primary rhinoplasty. By using complex techniques such as the use of synthetic materials or cartilage grafts from the nasal septum, the rhinoplasty surgeons in New York City at Profiles and Contours are able to deliver results that are aesthetically pleasing.
