Would you do it again?
Just curious for all those people out there who have had a nose job, if you could go back in time, would you still have it done? Or would you keep your original nose? I am asking this knowing that many people on this board require revisions.

Also, if you were to do it all over again, is there anything that you would you have done differently?

Thanks! I am considering getting a nose job, and would love to hear feedback and experiences.

I would do it again. It looks worlds better than what it was. I'm still not completely happy with it, but my nose was all kinds of crooked before, that I know my surgeon did the best with what he could. I will be getting a revision, though, in about a year or so.

Thank you both for your responses. Its good to know that just because you are getting a revision doesn't mean that you wouldn't do it again.

Abbeyroad, will you be using the same surgeon or a different one? If you are going to a different one, what are you doing differently this time to ensure he is up to the task? There is a lot of great information on this site, but a lot of conflicting as well. I live in Canada and there isn't 'much' plastic surgery in my city, so I have no personal references for tips.

The2nd, sorry to hear you have to have rib cartillage taken, that sounds so painful!

If I could go back, yes I'd do it again, but perhaps "shop" around more for a surgeon. I only saw one...after going with my mom to an appointment with her surgeon, I could just tell her doctor cared more about the patient and their recovery.

I hated my old nose so much that even though I'm having some problems with mine, it's still a huge improvement for me.
