If you have a rhinoplasty operation that turns out poorly, it is extremely unlikely that your surgeon will be able to make it right in a second operation.  If you did good research in selecting your doctor, and saw many excellent before and after pictures of his patients, your doctor may be able to perform your revision.

But the vast majority of poor results are created by surgeons who probably shouldn't be performing rhinoplasty, and a doctor like that wouldn't have anywhere near the specialized skill to perform the revision.  Think long and hard before having your doctor revise your nose.

Questioner: My Nose Profile Has These Awkwards Lines. How Can This Particular Problem Be Fixed?
Depending on light and shadow, they are more or less evident, making my nose creepy. Also, I've been wearing glasses since I was 10 - I'm 20 now. Can these marks be a consequence of wearing glasses?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: The lines may adjust when the shape of the nose is changed, if that's a priority for you
Hi. It's never predictable how the skin will drape and fold over the nose. Were you thinking of changing the shape of your nose, too? If that were done, the folds might redrape in a way to make them less conspicuous, though it's not really predictable. See my "Web reference" link for a morph of a proposed change to your nose.

I brought it back closer to your face, raised the tip a small amount, and lowered the hump. Those are typical changes that patients request. You can see how that would change how the skin has to drape on your nose, and maybe for the better.

As far as changing the lines if you don't want to change your nose, I don't really encourage fillers, for example. I would probably just leave them alone.
