I did my revision rhino with Dr. Pat from Tokai.
I believe you must wait at least 6 months before revision Rhinoplasty.
I am 4 moths post op
now, but i cannot post photos of my current nose because i'm recovering from cheek implants and buccal fat pad removal and my nose is swollen from the surgery.
I do however have photos of my revised nose 6 days after my revision
Here it is.
6 Days Post Op
6 Days Post op side view
My nose looks much smaller and defined now as compared to my 6 days post op nose.
I will post a photo of my nose as soon as my cheeks recover and my nose isn't as swollen as it is now.
I do not have a photo of my previous nose but my nose was kind of similar to patricia moks nose, as a rough guideline.
How many months post op are you already?
Im 2 mths post-op nw, but most of the swelling had aredi gone down, see no much difference frm my original nose. The bridge is aredi of undesirable height when im still swollen, so can u imagine hw 'natural' my nose is like nw?
I tink ur 6 days post-op nose is much better than what i have...
Well, frm patricia mok to song hye kyo make a great difference! I will do some research on dr. pat then, thanks alot.
hmmm, how high a bridge u can take is also dependent on ur forehead and ur eyebrow ridge. if your forehead slopes etc or u have a very 'weak' eyebrow ridge, a high bridge can look very unnatural...
i have seen some indo tai-tais with very high and unnatural looking nose jobs because their bridge seems flushed with their foreheads, very odd-looking indeed... could that be a reason why nara didn't make the bridge any higher?
I agree with Aadvark!
If you look closely at my nose, my bridge is not very high.
During my first rhinoplasty, the Doctor made my nose bridge too high and i looked weird cause my high bridge did not match my face, exactly like what aadvark mentioned.
Thus when it came to the revision Rhinoplasty with Dr. Pat from Tokai, i requested him to lower my nose bridge and give me a S-shaped implant so that it will look more natural.
In addition to that, i requested that he made my nose tip sharper by pushing the implant down a lil bit more.
The previous doctor didn't do that for me, he merely added in an implant to make my bridge higher and did nothing about my nose tip, thus i had a bulbous nose tip with high bridge, it was super ugly.
If you were to research on Dr. Pat from Tokai, my advice to you is to tell him exactly what you want, cause he is rather extreme in his surgery.
One thing that i am dissastified with Dr Pat is that he does not use as much judgement as Dr Nara.
I have flat cheekbones by nature and yet Dr Pat still gave me a high nose tip.
I mean logically speaking, you do not gve a person who has flat cheekbones a high nose tip, cause the person would end up looking weird, like a pinnochio. (i hope you get what i mean)
Thus i went for cheek implants to even out my high nose.
So yeah, this is basically all the advice i can give if you on Dr. Pat from Tokai if you intend to go there
Cheer up babe! Do feel free to contact me if you have any other questions alright?
