Scar tissue after rhinoplasty

Recurrent Scar after Secondary Rhinoplasty
Thanks for the question. My first advice would be to stop feeling your nose. With a secondary rhinoplasty, specifically, removal of some scar will often result in some palpable asymmetries over the dorsum of the nose. I am guessing the initial scarring was above the nasal tip in the supratip area. My advice is to do massage to the area and followup with your surgeon at a one year followup. I would be hard pressed to re-operate a third time unless there was a visible deformity. Trying to achieve a smooth feel after two previous rhinoplasties is often an unattainable pursuit. If you are happy with the appearance, I would be cautious about any further surgery.
