I’m 35, female, and I’m thinking about going in for a revision nose job. I waited the year, and now I’m ready to fix the cartilage lump that is visible on my nose and the bridge that still looks a little wide. Since it took so long for the swelling to go down from the first nose job, will it take even longer for the revision?
In my experience, the swelling that one experiences with revision rhinoplasty is usually less and shorter in duration than the primary rhinoplasty. Obviously, bony work that is performed in revision rhinoplasty will result in more swelling than if only tip work needed to be performed.
