Revision Rhinoplasty FAQs

After the initial surgery, it is recommended that you wait at least six months (after the scar has healed and the tissues have stabilized) before considering a revision surgery.

It is recommended that patients who have had multiple revision surgeries wait at least one year before considering another.

In some cases, surgery should be performed within two weeks before the scar becomes raised and hard.
