What will be the procedure to bring back the original shape of my nose? How much is the cost?

Greetings

Thank you for your question. 

There are different kinds of rhinoplasty operations however we can divide them as the one that requires bone excision and the one that does not need bone excision. The main fact that we classify the rhinoplasty operations like that is that the results and postoperative period is associated closely with this fact. In the operations like “nasal tip correction”, “simple rhinoplasty” there is no need for a bone excision however these minor operations cannot be beneficial for everyone. The operation type is need to be determined by the surgeon according to needs of the patient. In these minor operations the rhinoplasty is performed with closed method. The bone and the cartilage tissues are not involved in the surgery directly. Small nasal bumps can be removed in these operations.

In the operation that needs the bone and cartilage tissues to be involved; open approach is used. In the procedures with open approach, the size, shape and functionality of the nose can be improved. The big nasal bumps can be removed and septal deviations can be corrected providing a better nasal airway.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Even with a minimal rhinoplasty, most changes cannot simply be "reversed" to return you to your original nose. Obtaining your previous operative note and consulting with a rhinoplasty specialist would be helpful.

Rhinoplasty revision for the over resected nose.

Rhinoplasty revision for the over resected nose. You need Cartlage grafts from your septum and eat to replace what was removed. This requires a very experienced rhinoplasty revision surgeon. The cost can be determined when examined.
