Nose tip

Postby SilverSurfer » Tue Nov 25, 2008 12:22 pm

I would like to have a sharper/thinner tip.

About 10 years ago i had rhinoplasty and shortened my nose and i was so-so happy. But i did not get the exact result i wanted. I would like to tweak it.

I DONT want to do the whole bone breaking thing - i dont its necessary as i JUST want to sharpen/thin and make my tip a little more anugular.

Is it a 'smaller' process/operation than a full on rhinoplasty?
Will it be cheaper?
Will it be quicker healing time?

What will the process exactly entail?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Dear SilverSurfer,

Revision rhinoplasty is frequently more challenging than primary surgery due to scarring beneath the skin and surgically altered anatomy. If the revision surgery is limited to your tip, it is quite possible that the healing time will be quicker. I can't really comment on cost . . .but it is not uncommon for revision rhinoplasty surgery to be more expensive than primary rhinoplasty. It all depends on the complexity and extent of the secondary surgery. . . .and who is performing the surgery.

I hope this helps,

Dr H,

Appreciate the reply and is certainly helpful, so thank you.

Am glad to hear that the healing time is quicker - but a little concerned that it is a more complex (and possibly more expensive procedure).

I am still making enquiries at this stage with a view to carrying it out next year.
