How Soon Can I Get a Revision with a Short Nose? (photo)

I had my primary closed rhinoplasty May 22, 2012. I request dorsal hump removal & was talked into having minor tip refinement because my P.S. said I "needed" it. I am unhappy with my results. I feel that my nose is overrotated, overresected & too short. My tip is no longer defined, it is actually more bulbous that before surgery. After consulting with a few revision doctors, I have been told not to wait too long to get a revision because my skin will "shrinkwrap." When should I get my revision?
Timing of Revision Rhinoplasty
It has been a little over 3 months since your surgery - your nose will change significantly during the next 6-9 months. In a nose like yours with several problems I recommend that the patient wait for a year before having a revision. Shrink wrapping is always possible but this is a rare complication which can be evaluated during an examination of your nose.
