Your nose is one of the most defining characteristics of your face, which would explain why nose jobs are so popular among both ladies and gents. But if your new look didn’t quite come out like you’d expected, you could be facing a revision rhinoplasty. Before your panic, let’s take a closer look at what that means.

What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty is, well, a revised version of your first rhinoplasty surgery. While you were probably hoping that your first nose job would also be your last, the fact of the matter is that this isn’t always the case. Actually, around 15 percent of people who get a nose job are in that same boat and will require a second surgery for one reason or another.

Thinking about getting another nose job? Talk to your plastic surgeon to see if you might be a good candidate for one.

When It Might Be Time for Nose Job Round 2

So how do you know if your new nose needs a revision? Once your nose has fully healed, which can take up to a year, you might notice that some of the same problems you had in the first place are still there. Or, maybe your plastic surgeon over-corrected your wish list and now you have new concerns. Sometimes, the healing process just doesn’t go as planned and a second nose job is necessary.

Revision rhinoplasty doesn’t always have to mean a full-blown surgery, though. In some cases, some minor touch-ups can be enough to achieve the look you were going for in the first place.

No matter your reason for considering a second nose job, make sure you work with a board-certified plastic surgeon to up your chances of loving your new look this time around.
