A recent study published in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery has determined that the top reason a patient may undergo more than one rhinoplasty (“nose job”) is a dissatisfaction with the appearance due to tip asymmetry, according to The Los Angeles Times.A recent study published in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery has determined that the top reason a patient may undergo more than one rhinoplasty (“nose job”) is a dissatisfaction with the appearance due to tip asymmetry, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Other aesthetic factors that might lead a patient to opt for a second nose job include an irregularity in the upper third of the nose or a crooked portion of the bridge, according to the news provider.

These results were derived from a group of 104 participants, 83 percent of whom were women, who had at least one rhinoplasty and were committed to having additional treatment.

Approximately two-thirds of the group also cited concerns about nasal airway blockage, such as snoring and mouth-breathing, as leading them to opt for a second surgery. In 94 percent of these cases, physicians found a nasal obstruction during the surgery.

The Mayo Clinic recommends that patients who wish to undergo rhinoplasty ask their surgeon to consider their unique features and the skin on their noses when discussing the procedure.
