I was wondering what would be the estimate time to wait to do a non surgical nose job after a surgical one? (photos)

NON SURGICAL NOSE JOB
You need to be patient with the healing process and at this time, you still have swelling on the nose that will go away slowly, in about 6 months from the surgery, maybe 80 to 90% of the swelling will be gone and the scar tissue will be softer. At that time, you may consider a filler to correct any small asymmetry on your nasal dorsum, but not in the nasal tip. For the nasal tip, wait at least 1 year from the surgery, so the scar tissue is soft enough. In a patient with a previous nasal surgery, a filler in the nasal tip has a high risk for complications, mostly skin necrosis, it is important to go with a surgeon who has a wide experience doing this.
