Yes there are. You should consult with several to see how they approach revisions and to get a sense of if what you are looking to achieve is realistic. Revision procedures may require different techniques and skills. Healing time may be more prolonged. This can be a very stressful thing to move ahead with. The surgeon should be committed to spending as much time as necessary to achieve the desired and agreed on goal.

Having an unsuccesful rhinoplasty operation can cause great stress and disappointment. Deciding to move on to another surgery is often a draining decision, and does require long thought and consultation. If you decide to have further surgery seek a surgeon who has experience in revision cases. All rhinoplasty operations are complex, but revisions require a different skill set and above all else judgement. Seek a surgeon who can demonstrate  al long history of dealing with the problems of revision rhinoplasty, both cosmetic and functional.
