Revision required after Rhinoplasty

Hello Ali,


I am sorry that you are not satisfied with the outcome of your rhinoplasty.


Based on the photographs you have attached, you could greatly benefit from a revision targeting you nasal bridge, etc.


The key is to find an extensively experience surgeon who could perform the revision. 


Best of luck to you.

The posted photo demonstrate either a poorly preformed rhinoplasty or an immediate post op complication of trauma. Either way you need revision surgery. But I do not know ant PS in Pakistan Sorry.

Revision rhinoplasty in Pakistan

It's an old post but I felt a need to reply this as there are not much Pakistani doctors on this web site and many patients from this region may have similar queries. It's sad not to have a good outcome from a cosmetic surgery. You need a revision surgery addressing the callous on your nose bridge, open roof deformity and the bulbous tip. In Pakistan both otolaryngologists (ENT specialists - as we call them here) and plastic surgeons are licensed to do a rhinoplasty but not all are very keen on doing this procedure as the market is still developing and is currently not very rewarding for the surgeons. You need to choose a doctor who has a passion for rhinoplasties and has good reviews and results.

Revision Rhinoplasty in Pakistan

There are a lot of things that can be corrected with your nose. You have a deviated nasal bridge, bulbous tip and an open roof deformity. Unfortunately I don't know any plastic surgeons in Pakistan. Consider traveling outside the country to find a competent rhinoplasty surgeon.
