In the before picture, you can see some white marks in the middle of her
dorsum that are reflections from the flash, right where the hump was.
The marks are crooked, indicating that her nose was a little crooked
in that area before surgery. I mentioned in the section on nasal
reconstruction that correcting a crooked nose is one of the hardest changes to
make in rhinoplasty. However, if the crooked area is small, and if it's on the hump, sometimes
simply removing the hump removes the crookedness entirely.
We also know that her nose was shortened somewhat during her rhinoplasty,
because we get a better view of her nostrils in the after picture.

What would be involved in Rhinoplasty 2nd revision on nose tip? Do I have Melasma or Freckles on my upper lip/ mouth?
Hello, I had rhinoplasty in August 2013 and a revision in September 2014. My nose is now asymmetrical in the tip and I'm just wanting to know what exactly would be involved in a second revision to have this fixed? Also if anyone could tell me, if I have Melasma or Freckles on my upper lip/around my mouth? Thank-you for your help in advance :)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Another revision should address more than just the asymmetry of your tip
I see the asymmetry of your tip, but the asymmetry is small, and small asymmetries are very difficult to correct. However, usually when there is an asymmetry like that, some of the other views show other problems that can be corrected during a revision operation. Can you post profile and three-quarter views? You might get some useful comments.
