There is not much that can be done with scarring on the external portion of the nose from any surgery. Certainly through revision rhinoplasty, osteotomies, thinning and narrowing the tip, the bridge, and straightening the profile can all be done. Making sure the tip is balanced with the remainder of the bridge, the nose is straight, and ala and columella are all in proportion are important aesthetic concepts regarding a revision rhinoplasty. Make sure you find a very experienced rhinoplasty surgeon.

First of all, wait at least one year after your last surgery. Then select an experienced surgeon who specializes in revision rhinoplasty.
