I am considering a second nose job to repair problems not fixed the first time, but wonder if the recovery period will be longer or shorter this time around.
A secondary or revision rhinoplasty may be a shorter procedure than your previous or initial nose job if minor touch ups are needed or it may be a much longer procedure if extensive “grounds up” redo of your nose is needed. Recovery will partially depend on this. Recovery also depends on your body and how it heals and how it deals with the stress of surgery and anesthesia. Recovery after rhinoplasty also depends on the meticulousness of your plastic surgeon and his skills. The more pristine his skills, the less trauma you endure and the quicker you will heal.
