According to a study published not long ago in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, about one in thirty nose jobs need revision. Unfortunately, somebody has to be in that one in thirty.
If you’re one of the unlucky ones, it will be a little time before you can be sure of it. The swelling takes a few weeks to go down completely, and you can’t be sure of the shape of your nose until then. If the shape of your new nose is obviously wrong, a number of things might have happened. The surgeon might have underestimated the thickness of the skin on your nose, or overestimated the strength of your nasal cartilage. This can happen sometimes with an inexperienced surgeon.
The good news is that there is no need for you to spend the rest of your life looking like this. Revision rhinoplasty is a specialized form of rhinoplasty that can correct thigns that go wrong with nose jobs. Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait until at least a year after the initial surgery to have the corrective surgery done. When it is done, you’ll want it to be done by a surgeon who takes the time to find out what you want and figures out how best to achieve it, and who has acquired expertise in revision rhinoplasty.
