Is my Surgeon Responsible for Revision if Ever He Ruined my Nose?

i think the answer to your question is contained in the question itself
if you feel the prior surgeon ruined your nose and you used the word "ruined" to describe what was done why would you ever go back to that surgeon
with that said - i am in no way endorsing your statements. i am not sure that your nose is ruined or that if it is ruined it was the fault of the surgeon. you might have a perfectly resonable result with a minor issue that can be easily revised (or perhaps no issue at all)
my only point is that if you have such strong negative feelings about your first rhinoplasty and the surgeon who did it, i dont see how you could ever be happy with at repeat
Is my Surgeon Responsible for Revision
All Plastic Surgeons have a policy regarding revision surgery and what the responsibilities of the patient and the doctor are should that need arise. Most of us have that in writing and have the patient read and initial the policy indicating their understanding and agreement. And most surgeons are happy to do necessary revisions at reduced fees. Hopefully you did your homework on that before undergooing a surgical procedure. A refund would be highly unlikely.
