I had revision rhinoplasty for the 2nd time 1 week ago. My original rhinoplasty was done in July 2009. The second revision was done exactly 1 year later when my doctor and I were not happy with the hanging columella. I was very happy with the result after. About a year after, I had a cartlidge bump on the tip and the columella shifted. He fixed it and I am now happy with how its looking. I know I have a little swelling, but what are the chances of it shifting again? I'm stressing out over it!
Shifting Again After Revision Rhinoplasty?

Shifting columella following revision rhinoplasty?
In general, the typical side effects of rhinoplasty may include the following:
1) Mild pain
3) Blood tinged discharge for 48-72 hours following surgery
As long as your surgeon secured the columella in a proper location, there is a very low chance of shifting. I would enjoy the results you are experiencing and not worry about the "what ifs".
Thanks and I hope this helps!
