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: Can my Results Still Be Corrected or is It Not Worth the Risk?
Furthermore, Based on the Pictures What Can Be Done to Improve? Hi, I had an open rhino. about a year ago, I'm really unhappy with the results. I originally had a dorsal hump removed but the doctor put a whole bunch of grafts in my nose also. (I have oily med/thick skin and I think I still have shrinking/swelling left). However, it still looks droopy, long, wide especially when I smile or laugh. How do I find a good dr. that can fix my nose type, my last specialist surgeon had a great "record" but it obviously didn't cut it. Any info would help. Thanks.
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: I agree your nose would probably improve if it were shortened
Even on a revision, shortening a nose by raising the tip can be one of the most predictable changes to make. See my "Web reference" link for a morph I made of one of your images.

Shortening a nose like that requires advanced work on the tip cartilages, so be sure your next surgeon has shown you before and after photos of other patients of his whose noses were shortened attractively. Seeing photos is your only way of checking out a surgeon's skill.
