I have noticed my nose tip turn slightly blue when it gets cold. Am I a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty? (Photo)

I agree your tip could use another revision. The blue discoloration when it is cold is not uncommon after several rhinoplasties. It is a sign that the blood supply to the nasal tip skin has been slightly compromised by all of the surgery. It is not a contraindication to more surgery, but it does suggest you are at higher risk of complications like small areas of skin loss, prolonged swelling, and/or infection. It is likely worth this risk, but you should be aware. Best of luck.
