18 months after rhinoplasty and I'm considering a revision surgery. (photo)

At 18 months you should be far enough out from the initial surgery to undergo revision rhinoplasty. Your tip does seem to be full and this could be refined and narrower. It does not appear that she would have too thick of skin but this would have to be verified with an in office exam.

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.
