No need to think about revision now.
Noses take a very long time to heal
Stick with your surgeon

At 1 month following rhinoplasty, you are still very early in your recovery. Recovery after rhinoplasty will vary based on the person, characteristics of the nasal tissues and what was done during surgery. Around the 4-6 week mark, most patients are able to appreciate many of the changes from surgery as a significant amount of swelling has resolved. However, it can take somewhere in and around 12-18 months to see the final results. The areas with thicker skin in the nose such as the tip, alar rims and radix will require longer to settle.
It's hard but important to stay patient during your recovery and to be diligent attending your follow-up appointments with your surgeon.
