revision rhinoplasty

After an unsatisfactory rhinoplasty, it's important to wait an entire year before attempting a revision.  The nose heals by making scar tissue under the skin, and with time that scar starts to soften.  After one year, the scar has softened enough to allow a competent surgeon to risk going back inside to take a look and see what can be done.

If a revision attempt is made too early, even to try for only a small change, the firm scar will block the surgeon's efforts, and further inadvertent damage to the appearance of the nose can result.

Questioner: Beverly Hills Doctors versus New York Doctors sense of aesthetics.
Hi, I am going to have a revision rhinoplasty soon. I am a male and I do not want my nose to look "done." Several people have told me that Beverly Hills doctors prefer a more "done" look than NY doctors. They say it is the style differences of the 2 cities. Is this true?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Geography has nothing to do with the results of a rhinoplasty
Hi! Beverly Hills has surgeons who can give you a beautiful, natural nose, surgeons who will give you a nose that looks "done," and surgeons who shouldn't be operating on noses at all. New York City has all three kinds of surgeons, too. You pick a surgeon based on whether you like the results he has been able to accomplish for others, not on his location.
