Your nose still looks too large for your face. Maybe it appears larger due to swelling. It is generally recommended that a revision rhinoplasty be performed at least one year after the primary rhinoplastry, when all swelling has gone down an the final result can be accurately judged.

hey Sam, who you doctor is?? message me his name, since I consulted Many doctors in India for my rhino, It may be possible that I consulted your doctor too, that way I can say If you should go head with him for revision. Secondly I see you had your surgery done on 4th Jan, so it is hardly 2months as today, please give it some time, I would suggest not to undergo another surgery for at least 8-12 months, your nose needs time to heal first, further surgery at this time may complicate the things more.

Revision rhinoplasty is much more complex than Primary. In my opinion do you research well, If I were on your place I would not go back to the same surgeon for revision who messed things up badly at first time.

hi thanks for the message but when i called my surgeon he said that he could do it and i really dont know why but i trust him because he has made my nose smaller than before. Not sure that if i should get it or not but i feel that i need it.i have been have a such shit time becuase i get scared to get out of the house and do anything with mates .feel like i will prisoned in my house forever and until i get my nose to look normal i cannot get out.

I know how are you feeling and what have you been going through, because I myself am in depression and seeking therapy, but I still would say, consult some other Surgeons and see what do they advice. your problem is with the tip of the nose, and the tip takes a long time to heal. give it sometime first, because your approach may further mess things up. Its not about the nose that you get just after surgery , it about the nose that you end up with after 8-9 months. you might be happy just after the revision, but recovery itself may be quire problematic afterwards. would you be happy to have a better looking nose now, which will look messed up after a year Or you would want to have a nose which looks better for your life. I would suggest you to seek advice from other Plastic surgeons.

Hi Sam, That is really sad to know, I am also from India and got my rhinoplasty on 4th January, I too am not happy with my results, but I think it is better than my before nose. I cant see your before pictures here. Wait for swelling to go before going for revision as it can futher mess things up. Who was your doctor here in India. the picture you posted is for sure something that is not expected of a good surgeon. You can message me your doctors name. I consulted different doctors over different cities. so let me know if you need any information.

Hi there,

Are the photos you've posted before your January 4th rhinoplasty or after? They look like after, but I'm not sure. Most doctors advise waiting at least a year before a revision to give the swelling time to subside and your nose to heal. It does look a little uneven and lumpy though. Are you seeing a facial specialist board certified in your country? Revision rhinoplasty is even more complex than regular rhinoplasty, so you want to make sure to choose the best doctor you can.

Here's a list of questions to ask prospective rhinoplasty surgeons.

Please come back and let us know how it goes!
