In case the desired aesthetic result cannot be obtained with the nose remodelling, two, three or more surgeries may be needed. Regardless of the experience of the surgeon, the possibility of second surgery is 10% in case of nose remodelling surgeries.

The important point is the scale of the revision. Sometimes the problem may be too small to correct through rasping; but sometimes, major problems may be experienced about the cartilage and/or bone frame.  In this case, it may be necessary to take cartilage from the ribs or the auricle if the cartilage in the nose does not suffice.

Risks increase in proportion with the number of operations in case of revision surgeries. The patient should be provided with detailed information about such issues.
