Is revision rhinoplasty more expensive?

Many of my Houston revision rhinoplasty patients have spent considerable amounts on their previous surgery(s) and cost is an important driver for their decision to pursue revision rhinoplasty.  While cost of revision rhinoplasty may vary from surgeon to surgeon, it is usually more expensive than primary rhinoplasty.  Revision rhinoplasty requires more work for the surgeon, dealing with scar tissue, weak cartilage, lack of cartilage for grafting purposes, and possible scarring.  Revision rhinoplasty may require rib or ear cartilage which leads to longer OR times.  Cadaver rib cartlilage for revision rhinoplasty is also an extra cost.  Revision rhinoplasty patients and their surgeons need to decide if a revision is right for them and worth the cost.
