Should I have a second opinion on my revision rhinoplasty?

Question

I had rhinoplasty done on the 16th January 2012. I wanted to get the surgery done to remove the hump in my nose, so I would be more confident and less self conscious about it.

This was not an over night decision as I wanted to get my nose sorted since I was 16 and I am now 26. Getting the surgery has been the biggest mistake regret of my entire life and my nose now looks deformed and worse than it did before!

I have pretty much not left the house since the surgery apart from going to work. My surgeon said I would be suitable for revision surgery however, I do not agree with what he wants to do therefore, I cancelled my revision operation. I believe that since my nose has been practically shaved all off and collapsed it needs to be rebuilt properly. Do you think I should have a second opinion as I do not agree with what my surgeon is saying?

I am definitely going to get my nose fixed but I do not want to rush into anything until I know it is going to been done properly. I know revision surgery is even more complex than primary rhinoplasty. At the moment I feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel and I am going to be stuck with this hideous nose.

Answer

With over-resection of the nasal bridge, there are a number of surgical options as well as the non-surgical option of using injectable fillers.

In essence, using computer imaging and simulation will allow you to define your target for change, and assist with the accuracy of further treatments.

The decision regarding your preferred choice of practitioner is yours to make, and I cannot guide you in this respect.
