Finding a Surgeon for Revision Rhinoplasty

It does appear you will need revision surgery, but  wait  6-12 months before making any decisions. Select a surgeon experienced in revision surgery and carefully review his/her results in nose similar to yours.  Multiple consultations may be helpful.

You appear to be an excellent candidate for a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty.

I reviewed your concerns and the photos you posted. It seems you'd like to have your bridge raised a bit. I agree this would look attractive.

An Injectable Filler treatment could provide excellent nasal-bridge augmentation with no downtime, and no additional surgery. My personal preference is to use Silikon-1000 for permanent results.

If any of my colleagues wish to learn more about my experience with Silikon-1000, I am giving an instructional course at the upcoming Fall Meeting of The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). The course is titled "Off-Label Applications of Liquid Injectable Silicone (LIS)", and I will be presenting on 9/24/2010 at 4pm. Common conditions treated include: volume replacement, wrinkle reduction, lip enhancement, acne scarring, and correction of many nasal irregularities (“Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty”). I will also be describing the serial puncture, microdroplet technique that is essential for achieving desired results.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Revision rhinooplasty

Revision rhinoplasty should wait at least one year from your original surgery so that things can heal and the soft tissue envelope can soften up.  It looks like you will need dorsal onlay augmentation to raise the dorsum of your nose.

Revision of bridge

In general it is a good idea to wait about one year before seeking a revision.  There are a number of good reasons for this which your surgeon can discuss with you.
