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: I am wanting Rhinoplasty as I hate the length of my nose and my wide bridge too! Any suggestions?
Is there anyway I can find out what would nose would suit my face etc - like having a video image first!?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose is strong in its forward projection
Image? Sure. Check out the Web reference link below. I made a morph of your profile.

I brought the tip of your nose substantially closer to your face, and elevated the tip, too: when the nose comes back closer to the face, it usually *looks* longer, and you have to raise the tip so it doesn't look too long after surgery.

Note, also, that I reduced your nose up where it begins, just beneath your eyebrows. It's important to address that area, so you don't look like a Roman statue after surgery.

These changes are all fairly predictable to accomplish, but only in truly expert hands. Be sure you see lots of a doctor's before and after photos before hiring someone to do your rhinoplasty.
