I’ve seen on message boards where patients looking into revision rhinoplasty mention thin skin. Does the skin become thinner after surgery or are these people who originally have thin skin? How does this affect the surgery?
Thin skin and thick skin rhinoplasty patients have their own problems and benefits. Ideal skin thickness for a nose job is medium but not many patients seeking rhinoplasty have medium thickness skin. Thin skinned patients need to have a very meticulous nose job with onlay camouflage grafts or crushed cartilage or fascia or Alloderm just to smooth things out.
