Is 6 months too soon for revision rhinoplasty?
In general, we recommend the following concerning revision rhinoplasty:
1) Wait at least one year to have the revision performed
2) Choose a revision rhinoplasty specialist
Even with a slight hump, it would be best to wait a year. There will be lingering swelling present that can affect your surgeon's ability to do his or her best work. Thakn you and good luck.

revision rhinoplasty at 6 months
There is a large hump still present which will probably require osteotomies when the hump is fully removed. This is not a minor revision, so it's best to wait at least a year
Consider waiting a bit longer
