First and foremost, it is too early for you know whether or not you should consider revision rhinoplasty. The nose will undergo significant changes during the first several months after rhinoplasty. As the swelling goes down, you may be more pleased with your results.
The general consensus among rhinoplasty specialists is that a patient wait for 12 months before proceeding with any revision. The reason for this is that it can take 12 months (or longer) for the majority of the post-operative swelling to subside and for scar tissue to mature.
Residual deformities following a rhinoplasty can vary in severity. For minor deformities or depressions, a "Non-Surgical Nose Job" using injectible filler substances can help camouflage the problem.
Occasionally, the problems are more pronounced and require additional surgery. Revision (secondary) rhinoplasty is more difficult than primary rhinoplasty and requires more expertise. It is therefore important to select a highly qualified surgeon who is experienced in secondary rhinoplasty when the revision of a previous nose job is required.
The cost of revision rhinoplasty can vary significantly depending on what needs to be done to correct the problems with the nose. Sometimes a revision is a minor undertaking and can be accomplished in the office with local anesthetic. Most surgeons will correct imperfections that weren't adequatelty addressed or arose from the original surgery for their own patients at no additional charge. This is something that varies from practice to practice.
If you are seeking a complete "re-do" by another surgeon, the cost can range from $6,000 to $25,000. With major structural deformities, cartilage grafts are required to rebuild the nasal framework. Septal cartilage, while the preferred source of cartilage grafts, has usually been depleted during the first operation. Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeons then have to "borrow" cartilage from another part of the body - such as the ear or rib. This increases the operative time and cost.
Speak with your surgeon about your concerns regarding your tip deformity. If you do not feel comfortable with the surgeon who performed your surgery, you should seek the advice of a rhinoplasty specialist who has expertise in secondary (revision) rhinoplasty.
