Revision Rhinoplasty FAQ
How soon after rhinoplasty surgery can I have a revision?
Every circumstance and patient from Syracuse, Buffalo, and throughout New York is different, but typically we wait one year after your most recent rhinoplasty surgery before another nasal procedure is done. It is best to wait until swelling has resolved and the appearance of the nose is done changing.
