Her first rhinoplasty operation, performed elsewhere, left her with those two bizarre-looking bumps
on the left side of her nose. Her plastic surgeon told her that there was
nothing that could be done about those bumps. The photo on the right was
taken after her revision rhinoplasty in my office.
Rhinoplasty is by far the most difficult of the plastic surgery
operations. You must be extremely careful in making your selection of a
doctor. FacialSurgery.com has a page containing
on how to find a competent plastic surgeon.

Is There a Way to Put a Very Slight Curve in my Nose Without Surgery?
I had a revision surgery 3 weeks ago. I was left with a too scooped nose so I wanted cartilage places to make it a little more straight with a slight curve. I feel that my nose is too straight now. Is it possible to get a slight curve without having surgery again?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Revision rhinoplasty takes longer to show the final result
Three weeks is too early to judge the results of a revision rhinoplasty. Your nose will be changing and losing swelling for at least a year, more likely 18 months or so.
Also, revision rhinoplasty is so difficult, that it's rarely wise to operate to change anything "slightly." Every time you have surgery, some new feature will appear to bother you. My opinion is that you should back burner the idea of more surgery for at least a year or so.
