I’m 25 years old and had a rhinoplasty two years ago. I’m still unhappy with the length of my nose, am I eligible for another procedure? Would I be more at risk for a polly beak deformity?
Yes. You could have a revision operation at 2 years. The risks of adverse scarring are higher in a revision, but there is no particularly higher risk of a polybeak deformity unless the tip is lowered without accommodating for the height of the areas just above it, the supratip. A polybeak deformity is usually caused by the septum being a bit higher in the supratip area, scar or both.
