I have recently had revision rhinoplasty to correct some asymmetry in my nostrils. I was told by my surgeon that it was a minor procedure, no tip work was done and it was a closed rhinoplasty. I don't think the asymmetry has been corrected, how long do I need to wait before having another revision?


In general terms, if there was relatively limited intervention to the nostril contour six months may be sufficient before contemplating further interventions. It does depend whether the surgery has led to more substantial scar tissue buildup on the inside of the nostrils or not.
