I underwent a closed rhinoplasty procedure six weeks ago. I had a medium-sized nose that I loved from the front. But I requested my nose be straightened (as it slightly tilted to the right) and that a very minor bump (evident from the side profile) be removed. I now have a complete different nose.
My nostrils have been tucked in without my permission and the tip of my nose completely removed. Also the bit in between my nose and nostrils was removed without my consent.
The surgeon has obviously made a mistake. I did not request for my nose to be modified from the front. My beauty has been taken away. The new nose makes my face look strange and unbalanced. Please, what shall I do?
Rhinoplasty does involve clear communication as to the patient's desires and what is surgically possible. Following the procedure there will be swelling and six weeks after a procedure is relatively early to assess the final result. In the next few months there will some changes and hopefully the result you were after will be achieved.
If this is not the case, and at this stage things are very different from your expectation, a second opinion may be of benefit to help assess what the final outcome may be. Surgical revision of rhinoplasty is possible and may be needed, though this is usually performed after the swelling has resolved.
At this stage open communication with the surgeon is essential. If this is no help seek a second opinion. Revision rhinoplasty may be the answer in the end.
