Is 8 Months Long Enough to Wait for Revision Rhinoplasty?

I'm a 21 year old male who had a septo/rhinoplasty back in December of 2010. As of right now I have tip ptosis, hanging columella, and a relatively undefined supratip break. My surgeon wants to do a revision rhinoplasty in August. Should I be worried? thanks

Timming of revision rhinoplasty


The timming of a revision rhinoplasty varries with the problem. In general terms most surgeons want to wait at least one year. Changes occur slowly in nasal surgery and you need to wait in most cases until you results are stable.
