Q: Had asian closed rhinoplasty (primary) 3 months ago. I had a small hump shaved down and osteotomy performed to bring the nasal bones together. My bridge before surgery was perfectly centered, but now my bridge is very off center (5 mm closer to one eye than the other) and everyone (even my ENT doctor, who I went to see for an unrelated issue) notices it immediately. It’s bad. How long do I have to wait before I can get a revision rhinoplasty with osteotomy to move my bridge back to the center?
A: After an endonasal (closed) rhinoplasty, if your main concern is reshaping the dorsum (bridge) of your nose during a revision, this may safely be addressed as soon as 6 months after the initial surgery.
