Even though it seems that only small changes were made in the revision, revision rhinoplasty is still a difficult operation.  After the first operation, the inside of the nose contains scar tissue, and the second surgeon must fight through that scar in order to make the changes he and the patient desire.  The scar tissue can put a limit on what is possible in a revision operation.

Questioner: My plastic surgeon doesn't use drain tubes after Neck Lift/Facelift. Is that okay?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Drains after facelift

This is a question that cosmetic surgeons discuss regularly and you will find many different opinions. Most feel drains do help minimize seromas (fluid collections under the skin) and improve the recovery process. Some surgeons use fibrin sealants which also work well. Others just depend on dressings and pressure.  In general, however, if your surgeon is experienced with facelifts and getting excellent results, then whether or not they use drains should not be an issue.

Best of luck with your procedure-
