18 months after rhinoplasty and I'm considering a revision surgery.
When patients are considering a revision rhinoplasty, is best to seek out in-person consultation, since revision rhinoplasty is more difficult than primary rhinoplasty. This is due to the fact that there's scar tissue present and previous alterations to the anatomy. In addition, a full set of facial photographs are required to make any determination about a very difficult procedure. Look for a surgeon who has dedicated a significant component of their practice to the discipline rhinoplasty and performs them often on a weekly basis.
...your tip remains a bit full....although symmetrical, your tip defining points are a bit wide which makes your appearance a bit full and lacking definition....on profile, you project a bit prominently in the lower 1/2....provided that your vestibular skin is soft and pliable, a revision for tip definition and a bit less projection is likely possible
Your tip may be able to be defined a bit more with surgery. If your tip is soft at this point, a revision is certainly possible.

I do think your tip can be refined and shaped a bit more. After 18 months, you should have no problems with residual swelling. Good luck. MG
