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: I Want to Get the Bump Removed from my Nose, but Would I Need to Reconstruct the Tip of my Nose As Well?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Working on the tip would allow your nose to get shorter and closer to your face
Hi. While the hump is the most prominent feature on your nose, if it is removed and nothing else is done, you probably would feel that your nose is still too large. 

When a hump is taken off of the nose, the nose often looks longer, and your nose starts out sort of long-ish anyway. In the morph, besides lowering your hump, I also shortened your nose by raising the tip, and I brought the tip of the nose back closer to your face. 

It's not a bad thing to work on the tip. In fact, it's rare to find a nose that *only* requires work on the hump. Still, work on the tip comprises the most advanced techniques in rhinoplasty, so you must insist on seeing before and after photos of your doctor's patients who had their tips elevated or brought closer to the face, so you can see that he was able to achieve for someone else exactly what you want for yourself.
