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: Am I a candidate for a Tiplasty?
My nose is currently in the pic above i would like it to look like the picture below it....what would require to be achieved? From research i have done i would think it would be a tip rotation and trim....if so...does this procedure require anethesea /would it be cheaper??? Thanks :)
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: I think you're right: upward rotation of the tip is the goal
When you are looking for a surgeon, be sure to see before and after photos of patients who have had a successful and substantial upward rotation of the tip. Many of the revision operations that I perform are on patients who needed rotation but didn't get it in their first operation. It's a change that every plastic surgeon cannot accomplish.
