Rhinoplasty usually works
All we ask of a nose, besides the ability to smell, is that it complement the other features of the face. An oversized or misshapen nose calls attention to itself at the expense of the face, even if it’s the result of a bad nose job.
This isn’t usually a problem. According to a study published in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, about 3.3 percent of nose jobs (about one in thirty) need revision. But sometimes you get the nose you asked for without knowing that it would be unsuitable for your face — this can happen when surgeons and patients don’t quite communicate. Or your nose might have been injured during healing.
You can have your nose fixed by revision rhinoplasty, but you’ll have to wait until at least a year after the initial surgery to have the corrective surgery done. When you’re ready, you’ll want it to be done by a surgeon who takes the time to find out what you want and figures out how best to achieve it, and who knows revision rhinoplasty.
