I’m so happy with my nose but at my last visit my doctor said revision surgery is needed to correct a dent on the right side. I thought you needed to wait for all of the swelling to go down for at least a year before determining whether or not you need any revision work. Should I be concerned about this?
If the depression in the nose does not involve the tip, the early issues can resolve in six months. If a little depression involves the lateral nasal wall, this can be filled in with cartilage. I do not recommend using any fillers since this can cause scar tissue and cause the skin to not live. If it doesn’t involve the nasal tip, my recommendation is that the patient wait one year. Unfortunately, many primary rhinoplasties are going to need revision and small irregularities like this may occur.
