Multiple Revision Rhinoplasties

Cazabe,

It is possible to have multiple rhinoplasties but each rhinoplasty creates more scar tissue which makes the result very unpredictable.  It seems your last result is considerably improved.  If you feel the nose is still too turned up or rotated, adding a graft to the bottom of the tip may improve the angulation.  I would talk to your plastic surgeon about this and see if he can do it.  I would wait as long as you can to let all of the swelling go down.  The longer you wait, the less the swelling and the softer the scar tissue.
