Revision rhinoplasty Las Vegas

Rhinoplasty or nose job is a complex procedure that can sometimes go wrong because of various reasons. You may end up with an asymmetrical nose or a nose that’s too large, too small, crooked, or congested. Or there may be some other nose deformity like increased breathing problems or dislodged implants or grafts. 

The failed nose job could be due to a surgeon’s inexperience or over-aggressive nose cartilage manipulation. Or it could also be because an injury or accident changed your nose job results. 

The good news is that Dr. Jacobsen senses your discomfort and offers a solution through revision rhinoplasty. His close attention to detail and proportion help in producing optimal results. 

Secondary rhinoplasty helps rectify the undesirable effects of the earlier nose job. Today, one of the most challenging cosmetic surgery procedures in America leaves patients happy with the results. 

So don’t worry if you are unhappy with your nose job. You don’t have to live with unsatisfactory results or tolerate functional problems because of the failed rhinoplasty.

All you have to do is contact us at 602-212-0100 to schedule an appointment with Dr. J. He will assess your condition and reveal your options to achieve more aesthetically pleasing results.

What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Candidate for Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is a facial plastic surgery procedure performed to rectify a previous poor nose job. Depending on the case, it may compromise anything from making minor improvements to your nose appearance or opting for larger reconstruction using grafts to rebuild your nasal structures.

Revision rhinoplasty usually requires cartilage from somewhere in your body, like rib or ear cartilage or nasal septum. The nose’s structural framework will sometimes have to be rebuilt as the nose’s bony or cartilaginous support structure was removed in the previous operation.

In this case, some skin or composite cartilage graft is used to resurface the scarring inside the nostrils or vestibule skin. Some patients undergo a closed approach by making an incision inside the nostril. It produces less post-treatment nasal tip swelling when compared to the open process.

Sometimes placing a cartilage graft in a weak area or area of volume deficiency may resolve the problem. And in other cases, multiple cartilage grafts may be necessary for functional (improved breathing) and aesthetic reasons.


About Our Rhinoplasty Procedure


Dr. Jacobsen is a board-certified plastic surgeon and adequately qualified to perform revision rhinoplasty. He will first take a look at your nose to ascertain your nose job revision concerns and goals. Dr. J will accordingly come up with an appropriate treatment plan.

Dr. Jacobsen generally performs revision rhinoplasty as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. About how long the process is, it takes a few hours, depending on the extent of repair involved and the technique used.

Dr. J uses the open technique in most cases, which is also the most common revision rhinoplasty approach. He makes an incision along the nose base and corrects any airway obstructions. Dr.Jacobsen will also reshape the nose sections along the tip, nostrils, and nasal bridge.

He may also use a cartilage or bone graft to reconstruct and strengthen the nose framework if required. Dr. J usually harvests the cartilage implant from your ear, rib, or septum.

Once done, Dr. J closes the incision using several stitches or sutures. If necessary, he may also place a protective splint over the nose bridge, in addition to internal support splints.

Dr. Jacobsen may opt for the closed rhinoplasty technique for milder cases. In this case, all incisions made will be internal.

Dr. J will decide on which procedure to use based on your individual, unique situation.

You will have to make multiple post-operative visits with Dr. Jacobsen, where he will remove the stitches and splint to help with proper healing.

Most patients can return to work or school within a week of the surgery. There, however, will be some swelling around the nose for at least 6 to 12 months.

  • Dr. J has an amazing personality and the surgery was quick, painless, and perfect. I didn’t even need to take any painkillers after I woke up. I look and feel so much better. Would highly recommend him to anyone considering surgery. The staff was also incredibly easy to work with. All around great office energy and the medical staff at the surgery center are so sweet.

  • I’m 9 days post op and I’m very happy with the results so far (still healing). Dr. J is easy to talk to. I went in for a consult and was able to schedule the procedure for the very next week. All went very well. I was so afraid to remove the bandages - I was expecting a bloody/bruised mess. I was pleasantly surprised to see tiny incisions with no scabbing or bruising. I’m very impressed.

  • Enjoyed meeting and working with Dr. J. I had an eye lift and it was a pleasant experience from start to finish. Dr. J’s bed side manner is very personable and genuine. He explained everything step by step and made the procedure very painless. Even though I’m from Minnesota - I will be coming to Dr. J for any future cosmetic surgical needs. I cannot recommend Dr. J enough.

  • What a brilliant human! I’m so thankful for finding this amazing genius. I’ve struggled with skin sagging since my weight loss surgery. My arms were my nemesis, I have other skin removal surgeries to have in the future but my arms were really my starting point and I had went to try to freeze the remaining stubborn fat and skin to hopefully shrink. Yeah that didn’t work. Then I found this guy, he’s awesome, his staff is awesome and professional and I cannot say thank you enough to this life changing leap into the rest of my journey. I truly and blessed to have had the opportunity to be able to experience the joy he has for his craft. He has truly changed my life. Thank you Dr. J.

  • I, Theresa Buschbacher, prepared this review and submitted it on my husband,s account. Superb, Excellent, Caring, Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Experienced, these are all descriptive terms that one must earn. Dr.J has completely filled the requirements of each and every of these terms and they can all equally be applied to him. His knowledge immediately puts you at ease (and when what he says will happen does actually happen, you get a big smile inside and you know you have a relationship with an excellent doctor)! Now for the support staff, they relate to you and express a genuine concern for what you are going through. They work with you and put you at ease while accomplishing what is needed for the “business end” of the doctor’s office. This is a WINNER!!

  • This will be a long review but worth the read! I'm beyond impressed with the overall quality, cleanliness, prices, customer service and results. First impressions, their branding of their classy theme provided an elegance that I felt right at home. I felt like a king who was going to get the best treatment! Secondly, very clean... I mean this place was immaculate! You can tell these folks worked hard to build their business and put in the work to upkeep it! As a business owner myself I applaud the way they conduct their business and never loose their family values, that caring, compassionate, family oriented value that most businesses start off with but loose over time. I can tell that money is not their passion. Their customers results are, the smiles and cries one has when they see their results. I was terrified of anesthesia, and when I expressed my concerns about my PTSD the surgeon, anesthesiologist and staff all took the time to sit with me and listen to me then proceed with a break down of how well they were going to take care of me and make sure I have the best experience possible. In which I certainly did! And best part I didn't wake up out of it, scared, panicking or anything like that. I was a little tired of course, but I went live for my fans soon as I got in the car. I felt comfortable the entire time I was waiting and when my nerves were really high I was honest and told them. They put in the extra love to make sure I was ok. When I went back and they gave me whatever magical cocktail, I felt as my procedure was 4 seconds. I didn't wake up during surgery, didn't hear anything nor wake up in pain! Everything they could have possibly done right they absolutely did! I felt safe too. And when I had questions after they were great about responding and following up. The cleanliness was great, and they took all precautions during this time of COVID-19. I knew the day I met Dr. Jacobson during my consultation that he had to be my surgeon! I hope this review helps viewers make that final decision on choosing Dr. Jacobson as their surgeon and if anyone has questions you are more then welcome to ask and I will answer to the best of my abilities? Thank you Dr. Jacobson and your staff?? my results are incredible! And I'm not even fully healed yet and I can't stop staring at my chest! It's a dream come true and it wouldn't have be possible without you and your staff. God bless!

  • Dr J is absolutely brilliant. His office and staff are out of this world and his demeanor is so friendly and up beat. He makes you feel like you are in the best possible hands... And you are! The Surgeon I met with before I saw Dr J told me I would need a general anesthetic for my surgery and likely a skin graft. I was terrified. Went to Dr J for a second opinion and he was totally nonchalant about what needed to be done. He did it a week later in his office with just some local freezing and it was amazing! No problems at all. I would never see another Dr for surgery. Dr J is truly above the rest! Even his peers give him awards. His office is full of them! Big hugs to him and his staff for turning this in a happy ending from a scary start.
