Is an early revision rhinoplasty better in some cases?
Doctor Answers 4
Generally you want to wait at least a year before going back in. In addition to the tissues being more manageable, the blood supply has typically returned to the area and makes revision surgery safer. Going in too early risks skin and cartilage necrosis. I would only do it earlier if it was a small scar revision or a patient was in significant pain from a displaced graft, for example. Best of luck moving forward!
