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
