i had a rhinoplasty 2 years ago (April 07) to reduce the width of my nose and the dorsal hump as well. This goal was achieved but at the 2yr mark I am experiencing some swelling and bulbosity of my nasal tip. The tip was never quite as narrow as I wanted but at the one year mark it was looking better than it does now. I have asked my doctor about this and he says he is not motivated to do a revision and the nose looks good. He says revision can be more harmful than beneficial for very little positive result that I may get.

Can a steriod shot help at this point -- 2yrs post op? Why am I getting swelling still? Can I possibly have more healing time to go? If revision is the only way what can I expect cost wise for a simple refining of the tip? I am Italian and have thicker skin -- could this be the issue and if so what can I do about the skin and the soft tissue swelling I'm seeing?
