Do I Need Revision Rhinoplasty?

What is my naso frontal angle (acute, obtuse, or...?) My surgeon used the silicone to augment my bridge, dorsum, and tip. And it turns out that my radix is quite higher than before making my hump almost invisible. Is that a good thing? I don't know weather lesser hump makes your profile looks better or not. As for my tip, is it too short? I think it looks shorter than my old tip, will it cause my original tip to become shorter in the future? I'm really worried.

Based on your photos it appears that you have a nice bridge - if you have concerns from the front then additional photos would be helpful

You do not need a revision rhinoplasty. If there is something you don't like, review this with your surgeon. It is difficult with the picture submitted, but you might consider augmentation of naso-labial angle and a chin implant.

You need to decide what you want, desire, and what you consider beautiful first. Communicate that to your plastic surgeon and see what is possible. Only you can decide if you need another surgery

Hi, It is difficult to evaluate your result with the pic posted. I'm also not sure what your nose looked like before. If the implant is too high in the naso-frontal angle it can be easily fixed. As for your tip, it would help to see a frontal pic. Best, Dr.S.

You appear to have a nice profile after Rhinoplasty Surgery.

I reviewed your profile photo, and you appear to have a good result. Your nasal profile is straight, and the bridge blends nicely into your tip. If you have specific concerns about the appearance of your nose, you should discuss these with your surgeon.

I hope this is helpful for you.
