Revision rhinoplasty. Is it too early?
Doctor Answers 2
Not too early for a consultation
Hi Sarah,I sympathize with you and am sorry to here about your less than desirable outcome. Forty days is a bit soon to consider revision surgery, as there is considerable swelling and the nose does indeed change over the next few months. However a crooked columella and greatly misshapen nostrils are unlikely to fully resolve especially if there were not there previously. I usually tell my patients wait 9-12 months before I will do the revision. However it never hurts to have a consultation before then. This will give you a jump start on the planning process and allow someone with unbiased eyes to view the nose. Hope this helps!Dr. Hershcovitch
