Revision rhinoplasty with thick skin

Many of my revision rhinoplasty patients will ask if they can have revision rhinoplasty despite their thick skin.  Revision rhinoplasty is a difficult surgery due to the scar tissue especially around the tip cartilages.  Thick skinned patients will deposit and produce even more scar tissue.  This makes revision rhinoplasty with thick skin even more difficult.  However, if your revision rhinoplasty surgeon finds that refinement of the tip cartilages can be achieved and it is the cartilage contributing to your bulbous tip, you may be a candidate for revision rhinopalsty despite your thick nasal tip skin.
