Revision Rhinoplasty Before & After

“Dr. Kulbersh is a kind soul and a highly skilled surgeon! Three prior rhinoplasties (different surgeons) had left me looking botched ..and crushingly self-conscious about it. Along with a neck lift, Dr. Kulbersh artfully performed a few non-invasive revisions to my nose which made a major improvement! I’m very happy with the results!”

Your Revision Rhinoplasty Experience


During your consultation for revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Kulbersh will carefully listen to your concerns and objectives. The focus will be on addressing any issues from your previous surgery and refining your nose’s shape to better suit your face and enhance its natural beauty. This includes correcting asymmetries, bumps, or any irregularities while maintaining a balance with your facial features.


Morphing technology plays a crucial role in this process, offering a preview of the potential results. Dr. Kulbersh will use this technology to generate before and “after” images, illustrating the targeted improvements and giving you a realistic expectation of your post-revision appearance.


Dr. Kulbersh performs your revision rhinoplasty at the fully accredited Fairview Surgical Suites, ensuring the highest standards of safety. Our specialized team is committed to providing exceptional care throughout your surgery and recovery period. Given the complexity of revision rhinoplasty, the procedure may vary in duration, generally lasting between 2-7 hours. We use general anesthesia to conduct the surgery, so you will be asleep during the procedure.

Results and Recovery

The initial recovery from revision rhinoplasty typically spans 1-2 weeks, with several follow-up visits to Dr. Kulbersh to ensure optimal healing. The full recovery and final results develop over a year. During this period, the Fairview Recovery Retreat offers a luxurious and comfortable space for your initial recuperation, staffed by healthcare professionals to aid in your healing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Possible complications of revision rhinoplasty include infection, bleeding, swelling, bruising, asymmetry, difficulty breathing, and dissatisfaction with aesthetic results. Consulting with a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Kulbersh reduces your risk of complications.

Revision rhinoplasty can typically be performed as soon as one year after the primary rhinoplasty procedure.

The nose typically heals more slowly after a revision rhinoplasty compared to the first surgery. You may see some initial results within a few months. The final outcome takes about one year or more after the revision surgery once the swelling has resolved.

The price of rhinoplasty revision is unique to each patient. The price of revision surgery varies based on the extent of the correction that is needed. You can discuss the cost during your consultation with Dr. Kulbersh.

You can’t wear glasses for some time, since doing so may lead to an indentation or a crooked nose. You can wear them for the first week if you set them on your cast. After the cast is removed, you can:

  • Lightly tape the glasses to your forehead to minimize pressure on the nose
  • Place your glasses on a small headwrap

You can wear light glasses four weeks after surgery, but heavier glasses should not be worn until six weeks after surgery.

To prepare for revision rhinoplasty, avoid certain medications and treatments (blood thinners, NSAIDs, dental work, etc.), maintain good health, and arrange for post-surgery care and transportation.

Results are typically permanent, though aging and other factors can affect the nose’s appearance over time.

Candidates for revision rhinoplasty should have completed their facial growth, typically occurring in their late teens or early twenties. This ensures the facial structure is fully developed before undergoing the corrective procedure.

Insurance coverage for revision rhinoplasty in Charlotte often depends on whether the procedure is deemed medically necessary. If the revision is required for functional reasons, such as correcting breathing issues resulting from the original surgery, insurance may cover it. However, if the revision is solely for cosmetic purposes, it’s unlikely that insurance will provide coverage.

If you’re traveling from out of town for revision rhinoplasty, plan to stay for approximately one week. This duration accommodates the initial recovery phase, which includes follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing. It’s important to stay nearby during this critical period for safety and to allow for any immediate post-operative care or consultations.

If you encounter problems post-surgery, contact Dr. Kulbersh immediately for advice or follow-up care.

Contact Dr. Kulbersh immediately if you experience problems after undergoing revision rhinoplasty and live in another state. He will provide guidance and may coordinate care with local medical professionals. Dr. Kulbersh might also arrange virtual follow-ups to monitor your recovery and address any concerns remotely.
