Question: I am male, 24 years old and I am really unhappy with the nose job I got this year. It doesn’t look like what I wanted it to. From the front view, it looks like the sides of my nose are pinched in. Does revision rhinoplasty take as long or longer than the original nose job? Should I wait a period of time before I schedule the revision? I don’t think that there is any scarring.
Answer: Without seeing you or some photos, I really cannot tell what you need. Revision rhinoplasty for what you describe, however, can be a more complex procedure than the original rhinoplasty. Surgical time would be 2-4 hours depending on the type of cartilage grafts needed to fix the pinching. I would not operate on you until 18 months after the original procedure. I would be happy to see you.
