Would the scarring that seems to occur cause you any concern if you were to perform a third revision rhinoplasty?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Question

I have had 2 rhinoplasty operations. The first left me with heavy scarring around the base of my nostrils. I had a second operation to remove this scarring. I am now left with scar tissue between my nostrils and an asymmetrical tip which I am still unhappy with. Would the scarring that seems to occur cause you any concern if you were to perform a third revision rhinoplasty. My last operation was 8 years ago.

Answer

It is very difficult to give an opinion based on description.

In a situation like this, the only accurate advice I could provide would be after a formal consultation.

Just the fact that there is scar tissue does not represent a contraindication for further surgery, but it may represent a limitation in terms of the degree of change that can be operated.
