Looking for more surgery after only two weeks?
Whoa. Take a rest. Why are you thinking of further surgery when you haven't healed o seen the final results of the surgery you said you had just two weeks ago?
Have a question?
Ask a doctor
Rhinoplasty recovery time
It take a full year for swelling to resolve after rhinoplasty. Make sure to communicate with your surgeon. It is too early to critically evaluate your results. Hang in there. Good luck.
You can see the preliminary results of your rhinoplasty at 4 weeks, but it takes a further 6 months before you have your final result. Especially at the tip.
You should wait a full year prior to any revisional surgery. Any earlier you will be operating on a moving target and will get suboptimal results.
How soon after primary rhinoplasty can I have a secondary procedure?
- If you're rhinoplasty was only two weeks ago I would wait at least 6 to 8 weeks before beginning to look at my nose critically. Your ultimate result may take as long as 6 to 12 months. Unless you have a significant abnormality I would not recommend revisions surgery for at least 12 months to let all of the reaction from your primary procedure to resolve. I would recommend that you discussed this with your board-certified plastic surgeon at the time of your next visit. Best wishes
2 weeks post op of Rhinoplasty, how long do I have to wait to have another surgery done to my nose?
Most people wait for a year before considering a revision. It is way too soon to assess your results. Please be patient and communicate with your surgeon. Good luck.
Time for a Revision Surgery
In general, it is best to wait one year prior to a revision rhinoplasty. This is to ensure that appropriate swelling has dissipated allowing the surgeon to see areas which need correction. Repairing a nose too early can lead to a need for further surgeries. Early on after a rhinoplasty, it may take some time to see the results of the procedure so try and be patient and allow the swelling to hopefully resolve.
Please be patient. I am sure your primary surgeon would have done a good job. The swelling on the nose takes a while to resolve(3 months ). I am sure you will get a very good result.
