Dr William Portuese of The Seattle Facial Plastic Surgery Center is a revision rhinoplasty expert with thousands of secondary nose operations under his belt. Dr. Portuese  is one of the best doctors for rhinoplasty revision because he is a nose specialist, and when other less skilled surgeons have failed to produce the natural outcome their patients were hoping for, they turn to him.

Any prospective patient can examine our unrivaled collection of revision rhinoplasty before and after photos from our pleased patients who have suffered a rhinoplasty gone wrong, much like you may have before meeting Dr.Portuese, due to the practice’s major focus on fine-tuning the nose.

Dr. Portuese had the honor of training under one of the most well-known nasal surgeons in the world after receiving his board certification and fellowship training.
Dr. Portuese has been doing revision rhinoplasty procedures for many years, including permanent non-surgical revision nose jobs and revision rhinoplasty for ethnic groups.
Patients may rest easy knowing Dr. Portuese is the right choice for anyone seeking their secondary rhinoplasty and the revision nose surgeon with the most experience.

Due to his extensive training and specialty, Dr. Portuese has developed a unique understanding of the common issues that may arise during and after rhinoplasty. Dr. Portuese is pleased to have treated thousands of patients with this extremely difficult operation. Dr. Portuese, a rhinoplasty surgeon, can help you get the results you want, whether your initial rhinoplasty left you with cosmetic flaws or you are just dissatisfied with the outcome.

The majority of patients undergoing revision rhinoplasty are particularly concerned about how their procedure will turn out, but at our office, you won’t have to worry because there won’t be any surprises. With the aid of computer imaging technology, our surgeon can show you the final result of your secondary nose operation before the treatment is carried out.

How long do patients need to wait before having a secondary rhinoplasty?

The outcomes of cosmetic nose surgery are sometimes obscured by swelling and other postoperative side effects.It may be time to think about having a revision rhinoplasty if, six months after your initial surgery, you are still not happy with the results.After surgery, it is customary to wait for about a year to allow the nose to recover completely.

Why Get Rhinoplasty Revision?

Broken Bridge

The nose’s support and shape are greatly influenced by cartilage.During rhinoplasty, specific areas of the nose may eventually collapse if too much cartilage is removed.Usually, this happens over a period of years.Patients might observe the bridge’s dorsum developing a depression before it eventually falls apart.The collapse may clog the interior of the nose and impair breathing depending on how severe it is.Bridge collapse can also happen after a dorsal hump has been removed, particularly if the procedure includes removing dorsum cartilage.

Variable Nostrils

Patients who have rhinoplasty occasionally get asymmetrical nostrils.
Special care must be used while making changes to the delicate structures of the nose to prevent overcorrection or excessive bone and cartilage removal.
From the frontal view, nostril asymmetry is caused by weak spots in the nose that may collapse in and protrude to the opposite side.
While some asymmetry is common, it can be upsetting to have your nose look even more crooked following rhinoplasty.

By repositioning the projecting cartilage and strengthening the nose’s supporting structure, Dr. Portuese tackles nostril asymmetry.This also assists in halting the emergence of new flaws.

An Upturned or Drooping Nose

Overcorrection is commonly to blame for drooping or tilted noses, as it is for many post-rhinoplasty flaws. The nasal tip rotates excessively and collapses backward when the nose is not properly supported. On the other hand, if there is insufficient support, the nasal tip may become under-rotated and droop forward. As a result, the appearance is overturned. Scar tissue that has contracted can also result in an inverted nasal tip by effectively pulling the tip backward. By repairing the supporting structure of the nose and releasing scar tissue as necessary, Dr. Portuese can correct this cosmetic flaw.
