The side of my nose is thick, could this be revised in a revision rhinoplasty?

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

Asked on 08 May 2013


I have heard great things about your work. I had a primary rhinoplasty 14 months ago and want a minor revision.

The side of my nose is thick, I think from scar tissue and gives a bad contour when looked at from 3/4 view and wondered whether this could be revised in a revision?


I would be delighted to see you in consultation and identify together on a computer simulation what it is that you would like to achieve in terms of changes.

I would then be in a better position to advise you regarding feasibility.

On occasion, reducing the scar tissue with the assistance of steroid injections could solve the problem, but in other cases surgery may be required.
