Swelling: At a month i would not worry too much as swelling is still significant. Be patient but express your concerns to your doctor. It takes a year to reach the final result from rhinoplasty. ...Read more

1 month after tertiary revision rhinoplasty my nose looks grotesque and freakish with bridge side wall dent can I get a filler soon. Looks scarey . It will be difficult to live like this a year .

Concerned: Concerning that you've have 3 rhinos at 31. As you've seen, rhinoplasty can be tricky and each additional procedure becomes moreso. It's hard w/o pics but you're level of worry concerns me. I would not have any more surgery for 9-12 mos. Fillers are not likely the answer. You need to see a plastic surgeon with extensive rhino experience. While I do rhinos, i would send you to a colleague w/ > exp. ...Read more

How does one breathe after the nose base narrowed in a rhinoplasty?

Nasal Base Narrowing: The narrowest part of the nasal airway is the internal nasal valve, located about 2 cm into the nose. This may be narrowed by osteotomies or hump reductions that weaken the nasal sidewalls, but not by nostril reduction. That is not to say that nostril reduction cannot be overdone. Choose a surgeon with experience in this maneuver specifically who can discuss you options with you. ...Read more

I had a rhinoplasty over 1 year ago. I still have some brusing and discolorations on top of my nose. Is this normal after such a long time?

I had a rhinoplasty over 1 year ago. I still have some brusing and discolorations on top of my nose. Is this normal after such a long time?

Not normal: No this is not normal. While most bruising will last no more than 4 weeks, by one year all bruising should have resolved. On occasion post inflammatory hyperpigmentation may last upwards of two years, this is not common unless there was prolonged inflammation or additional injury postoperatively such as a sunburn. I would discuss with your surgeon. ...Read more

Do i need a revision rhinoplasty if my nose is still stuffy one year after my first rhinoplasty? My surgeon kept telling me to be patient and the stuffiness would go away. Now it's been a year, so i'm thinking it's not going away and i need a revision rhi

Perhaps: Most internal swelling has resolved by one year after rhinoplasty. There may be other causes unrelated to the surgery which may cause nasal obstruction. See a board certified facial plastic surgeon for a second opinion, as he/she has training and expertise in both the cosmetic and functional aspects of the nose. ...Read more

Is rhinoplasty a good procedure to do oversees? I know medical tourism is better for some procedures than others. Is rhinoplasty a good one to do in another country? .

No: No, as there are many experienced rhinoplasty surgeons in the usa. Your healing will take a year and occasional visits and possible minor interventions, like injections may be needed during that time to control healing. Additionally, in some countries implants may be placed in the nose that can lead to complications early or late! ...Read more
