Is There a Solution After a Rhinoplasty to Correct an Assymetrical Result?
- Asked by Mia-lyon in France
- 2 years ago
My nose is now smaller but after a cople of month it was quite obvious that the nose is asymetrical. One part is quite nice and the other one to be quite bad. My doctor seems to be a bit lost and he suggested to back up/pull up (?) my nose, but I am scared that it crush a little bit. I asked the doctor to wait 1 year before doing the operation Do you have any suggestions please ? Operation was in June 2010
Revision Rhinoplasty to Address Asymmetry
You have waited plenty of time, in my experience, to undergo a revision procedure. You need to find out if your surgeon has the understanding and confidence to repair what are your concerns- and there is a chance that the nose cannot be made perfectly symmetric (especially if you had some elements of asymmetry before hand), but probably improved.

Sometimes the healing after a rhinoplasty doesn't go perfectly well. I think it's great that your doctor is willing to make the changes for you because you are not satisfied. You can wait a year or even 2 if you want. The absolute minimum time to wait before revising a procedure is at least six months, which you are already past.
So take your time, think about it, there really is no rush. Maybe a little graft on the right may help, it all depends how the first procedure was done.
