Revision rhinoplasty.

Discuss your concerns with your surgeon. If u r still unhappy seek a second opinion from an experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeon.

I'm Not Happy with my Rhinoplasty?

Start off by having a discussion with your surgeon and explain your feelings. Review your before and after pictures. If that does not work, seek a second opinion.

Revision Rhinoplasty

If you are unhappy with your rhinoplasty results, I would recommend scheduling a follow-up visit with your facial plastic surgeon and addressing all of your concerns with him/her. A revision rhinoplasty is also an option if you were unable to get the desired results from this particular surgeon. It's very important that you see someone who is board-certified and specializes in rhinoplasties as it is one of the most intricate surgeries out there.

Dear Farin:  You should sit down and have a frank discussion with your surgeon explaining all your concerns. Please use photographs and compare them with your preoperative pictures. If this does not get you the answers you desire then you should seek a second opinion. Hope this helps.

Unhappy with Rhinoplasty Result

At six months your nose is till healing, and you can continue to expect some changes. This is why most doctors follow their patients for up to year- to make sure the end result is satisfactory. If you have an appointment coming up, see what your doctor thinks and mention your concerns/ he's probably not happy if you're not happy.    Good Luck!
