Are there any factors that make someone not a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty?
Usually anyone’s nose can be improved. The degree to which it can be improved, however, can be affected by pre-existing anatomical features. For example:
- With thick skin in the nasal tip, sculpted look to the nose will be very difficulty if not impossible
- A twisted, crooked nose can be improved but may not be perfectly straight after surgery
- A very large nose with a large hump deformity can be made smaller but sometimes not a small as you might like
- Noses with thin, weak cartilages may require multiple cartilage grafts to maintain or improve breathing.
