I’ve been told that I have a lot of scar tissue in my nose. I’d like to get a revision rhinoplasty procedure. How will it be affected by the scar tissue?
You cannot do any surgery without ending up with scar tissue. Scar tissue develops with any surgery and a nose job is no exception. But too much scar tissue is bad. If your surgeon lifts your nose skin in the wrong plane and if you have very thick skin then you may get more scar tissue. Steroid injections can melt some of the scar tissue thereby avoiding a revision rhinoplasty. Scar tissue makes elevation of the skin and penetration of your nose more time consuming as opposed to a primary rhinoplasty nose which had no scar tissue.
