distance between your nose and lip can be reduced with a lip lift.This procedure does 3 things: it shortens the
distance between your nose and upper lip, rolls out the mucosa and increases
incisor show.This can be done at any
time, however, since you are 7 months post rhinoplasty, I would wait at least a
year before considering doing any revision of your nose to refine the tip and
change your angle.

Thank you for your question and photos. It is possible to put the tip and dorsum into better proportion. I would strongly recommend waiting for a minimum of 12 months before even considering a revision. Best wishes.
Revision rhinoplasty to lengthen and refine nose
- With the way the nose looks, you can get it more refined, and to get it like your morph, it would likely take at least 12-18 months for most of the swelling to resolve
- It would also take regular post-op visits and likely steroid injections to prevent excessive scar tissue build up
- I think it would be a good time to visit a few revision rhinoplasty experts to address your concerns, and see why your nose ended up the way it did
You will need to wait a full year for all the swelling to subside before consideringa revision rhinoplasty. Best of luck.
Revision rhinoplasty candidate for bulbous tip repair
Revision rhinoplasty is very complicated and is one of the most complicated procedures in the entire field of cosmetic surgery. It is impossible to make any determination with only one or 2 photographs on your current nose. Best to wait at least one year, seek out 3 individual rhinoplasty surgeons for an in person consultation to determine what can and cannot be accomplished. With thick skin on the tip of your nose, you will also require cortisone shots in the immediate postoperative period and close follow up with your surgeon.
