A Note on Surgical Revisions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Surgical revisions are inherent in nasal reconstruction. It is of benefit to the patient if the surgeon is able to accurately counsel the patient on the sequence and expectations prior to embarking on a multistage nasal reconstruction. The requirement to wait a year is an unnecessary patient burden, but almost all results improve with time.
