Are you unhappy with the results from your rhinoplasty procedure? Do you feel like your new nose doesn’t really match your facial shape or the goals you expressed to your rhinoplasty surgeon?
If that’s the case, you may be a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty surgery. This procedure aims to help correct issues caused by your first rhinoplasty surgery, as well as help you achieve your desired results.
But you can’t sign up for revision rhinoplasty right away. Check out our recommendations on how long you have to wait before revision rhinoplasty.
When Can I Have Revision Rhinoplasty?
Dr. Ali and you will decide when the timing is right for a revision rhinoplasty procedure. It can be as soon as 3 months but sometimes may be longer. This time frame allows your nose to fully heal, as well as any post-op swelling to go down. After all, some patients may be unhappy with their rhinoplasty results during the first few months after surgery, but may find that they love their new nose once it has achieved its final look.
Am I a Good Candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty?
You’re a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty surgery if you’re truly unhappy with how your new nose looks or have new or worsening breathing problems. One of the most common complications after a rhinoplasty is new breathing problems. So if you feel uncomfortable or dissatisfied in any way, revision rhinoplasty could be an option for you.
What If I’m Still Not Happy With My Results?
There are some patients who may not be happy with the results of their rhinoplasty revision surgery, and may want another procedure. This may require more invasive and complex operations like using your own rib or other grafts to improve breathing and the cosmetic result of the nose.

“I saw a few plastic surgeons before finding Dr. Ali, and I’m so glad I chose him. He was very understanding and professional throughout the entire process. I’m so happy with the results of my new nose! You can tell he’s done a lot even though he’s so young. Also, if you’re south asian, I definitely recommend him because he understands our features, and knows the Bollywood actresses as reference!”*
