Revision rhinoplasty: reversing changes to the nose
Reversing the changes from a previous rhinoplasty surgery may be possible, but it depends on the individual patient. The important thing to know is that you can never get your old nose back. Revision rhinoplasty can bring you back in that direction and close to it, but I would never promise someone their old nose.
I recommend consulting with revision specialist. They may want to see old photographs, your consultation and operative notes from your previous surgeries, examine your nose, take photographs, and perform computer simulations, so they can show you what can be achieved safely. I encourage you to meet with several surgeons until you meet someone who is on the same page as you regarding safety and outcomes. Safety comes first.
