Do I need a revision rhinoplasty?

Q: Is there anyway to correct uneven nostrils flare without a surgery? I would hate to go through another long healing process and pay for another rhinoplasty. I am 11 weeks post op.

A: Your nose will continue to heal and change in appearance for a year after surgery.  As the swelling in your nose continues to resolve, the appearance of your nostrils may also change.

Give your nose a chance to heal for 9-12 months before considering revision surgery, and follow up closely with your surgeon during your recovery.
