Hi, I just had a Rhinoplasty two weeks and a half ago and I'm extremely distraught with the results. I had a nice, thin nose but my only problem was that it had a hump. I told my doctor numerous times that I only wanted a slight change, which was the removal of the hump. He then suggested to remove some cartilage from the tip to make it more symmetrical. I have a long face so I didn't understand why he would suggest that but I went ahead and let him do the work since his the expert, not me. Advi
Revision Rhinoplasty Needed? I'm Very Distraught.

Need for Revsion Rhinoplasty
You may ultimately decide to have a revision , but it is impossible to judge your result just 2 weeks after your original rhinoplasty. Your nose will change significantly over the next several months as swelling decreases and healing progresses. I have no idea what you looked like before surgery, but narrowing a wide tip frequently is beneficial when operating on a patient with a long face. Please be patient while sharing your concerns with your surgeon.
