In brief: YES

There are always lots of options.
Check back with the plastic surgeon who did the procedure. If you are not satisfied, check with other respected plastic and dermatologic surgeons for other ideas and options.

In brief: Of course

The first thing to do is to discuss your options with the first surgeon who has the most insight into what may have occurred.
If not satisfied seek second opinions from experienced individuals.

In brief: Yes - there is hope

Suboptimal results from facial plastic surgery may be corrected the majority of the time.
It is important to identify the problem and find a board certified facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon experienced in fixing that problem.

In brief: Yes

If things have fully healed, but there are still issues many times revision surgery can be done.

See your surgeon, or see an experienced revision surgeon for a consult.

In brief: Yes

Yes. A lot depends on what you mean by "gone wrong".
.Sometimes "gone wrong" means unrealistic expectations. Discuss with your surgeon. Often minor adjustments will solve the problem. Or you may elect a second opinion. For best results make sure your surgeon is a board certified FACIAL plastic surgeon.
