Plastic surgeons are seeing a spike in people getting second nose jobs after being unsatisfied with their previous operation.
They say many patients return to their offices seeking a rhinoplasty to fix a new or uncorrected defect - almost the same reasons for why they had their first surgery.
Some have functional reasons due to botched operations, such as their nasal valve collapsing leaving them unable to breathe or their nose becoming crooked.
But surgeons say a surprising number are requesting procedures due to a mix of correcting procedures they got because they were trends a long time ago and influence from celebrities and social media.
According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 94 percent of surgeons performed a revision in 2018.
'The number of consults I see for revision rhinoplasties has at least tripled over the last five years,' Dr Deepak Dugar, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, California, told DailyMail.com.
'Five years ago I used to see about five to seven a day. Now sometimes I'll see between 10 and 15 a day.'
Dr Dugar and his colleagues, who are fielding more and more clients, warn that getting a revision rhinoplasty could potentially send patients down a spiral of wanting more and more surgeries to reach an unattainable perfection.

Rhinoplasties are among the most challenging plastic surgery procedures performed.
It's often referred to as the 'procedure of millimeters' because changing just one millimeter of the nose can impact its appearance.
'The nose is one of the most complex areas of the face due to anatomy and blood supply,' Dr Lara Devgan, a board-certified plastic surgeon based in New York City, told DailyMail.com.
'The nose is in the center of your face, it's closer to the selfie lens than any part of face, and it compromises parts of your identify and heritage.
'People underestimate the complexity of surgical rhinoplasties. It seems like a triangle on a smiley face but, in fact, it hosts a whole bone support network.'
Therefore, it's not surprising the satisfaction rates of patients after rhinoplasties are lower than the rates after other procedures.
A 2015 study from The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center found that 83.6 percent of people were happy with their results.
But a 2013 study from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that 98 percent of women were happy with their results.
'You can't put makeup it on like an imperfection on your eyes, or like you let your hair grow long to cover a scar,' Dr Norman Rowe, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City, told DailyMail.com 'It's the hardest surgery to get right.'
But the operations are still done in droves.
The satisfaction rates of patients after rhinoplasties are lower than the rates after other procedures. But, in 2018, rhinoplasties were the most popular procedure, performed by 96 percent of plastic surgeons, followed by revision surgery, which 94 percent performed.

Procedures such as laser treatments to tighten or 'rejuvenate' skin, toxin injections to paralyze face muscles and ease frown lines, chemical peels, and freezing and killing unwanted fat, are fast overtaking traditional surgery.
More and more clients opt for procedures that require no anesthesia, less recovery time, and present fewer risks.
'The growth of non-surgicals is pretty much exponential,' ISAPS president Renato Saltz said.
'The technology, the money invested in research and development, is just mind boggling. If you look at the industry, they don't make money with a scalpel, but they do make money with machines.'
MOST POPULAR: BOTOX OR SIMILAR
In 2015, Botox injections were the most popular procedure with 4.6 million performed by plastic surgeons, followed by hyaluronic acid injections (2.9 million) to iron out wrinkles and plump up lips.
