What do I do if I'm not satisfied with the outcome of rhinoplasty?
I had nose surgery6 months ago. Unfortunately, I have a small bump on my nose and the tip of my nose curves to the right. What should I do if I am not satisfied with the outcome? Do I have the right to free re-operation?
feel like having a huge swelling on my nose 1week after rhinoplasty??will it subside??or will size of the nose increase?/i have done rhinoplasty for the reval of a dorsal hump on my nose..plz do help me..i am worried.
youll have to wait several months to see if that swelling goes away, usually revision surgery (if needed) will be performed 6 months to one year after your surgery, be patient. You will get better, you´ll see.
1 week after an operation is much too short to assess the final result! The nose is swollen and always looks too big, too wide...
Depending on your skin's thickness, you'll be able to see the result 1-3 months after the surgery, but it will still be changing untill 6-12 months...
My revision rate is about 5%, usually for very minor defects. In those cases, I don't charge any fee for the reoperation.
if there is a very visible bump after 6 months, it is unlikely to go away all by itself. Revision surgery in plastic surgery goes up to 30% of the times. Usually surgeons talk about this topic with their patients. once they agree with surgery they agree with the posibility of revision surgery as well as other risks. good luck

First of all, you should wait 1 year after surgery to make any final evaluation: until that time any change could still happen.
After that, if an objective defect could be appreciated, you should talk with your surgeon.
In most of the cases, you will need to wait up to an year after the operation, as small changes still may occur. In case of a possible revision, check the experience of the surgeon with revision surgery as this could be more difficult than first operation.

Yes you should look back inmediatly to your surgeon and have a secondary Nose job surgery. If you do not feel confident about the rsult of a second surgery look for a plastic Suregon that likes secondary rhinoplasty as Dr Pavajeau. www.cirugiaesteticaencolombia.com
First of all you should understand that rehabilitation is a longterm process. But if after a 6 month you still unsatisfied and you see there is something wrong you can demand free secondary rhinoplasty. You can even choose another surgeon and clinic where you did the first one is 100% obligated to pay for you. Take advocate with you and he will solve all the problems.
It's a little over two months now that I had close Rhinoplasty with Dr. Toncic, and I am 100% happy with the whole process and the result. The clinic was clean and very modern, the staff was very friendly and took a lot...More
