I had rhinoplasty done 4x loved my nose till this last one. Not only has he given me a nose that does not fit my face, I cannot breathe. Dr Pincus was not the pro I thought he was. I'm scared but need another rhinoplasty!

Hi. Can I ask who did the first surgeries you "loved"--same doctor, or different?

Too many rhino's I am not surprised you are not happy. With respect I really do hope you find a surgeon who will 'fix it' once and for all.

Sorry about what you're going thru. I had 4. I just had my 3rd revision. I originally made the same mistake as miss kitty by going back to the same surgeon who messed up to begin with, so this time I chose a different surgeon for my last revision. He ended up doing a great job and I am really glad I did it. Good luck and hang in there.

How long did it take until most of your swelling went down?

Well I'm 4 months post op now and my swelling has really gone down but it was swollen for the past 3 months. It's still more swollen in the morning and the day after I eat a lot of salt or especially if I cry, but in my experience this time around it was about 4 months.

For what it's worth I took vitamin C and arnica tablets religiously before, during and after and I am convinced it did absolutely nothing for me. Although sleeping propped up (if possible) did help me wake up less swollen. I still try to but usually wake up under all the pillows. Good luck!!

Good to know I was looking into vitamins and other herbal supplements but all the reviews had said it has little to no affect. I sleep with my windows open because I am scared if I sleep in a warm room my nose will look like a balloon in the morning (which has happened) but I don't really sleep proped up so I will now be sleeping with 2-3 pillows! thank you for your help :)

Anytime!! Also if you do yoga or anything that would put you in an upside down position I find that my nose seems to swell from that. And my biggest piece of advice is however messed up the skin on your nose is (mine is a mess) DON'T pick at it. I'm sure you know that as do I but I impulsively tried dealing with some blackheads and I deeply regretted it. I panicked all night thinking I'd damaged the structure and the grafts etc and I had a lot of redness and blotches for a while. That skin is super sensitive. Good luck!

Lol I have absolutely no idea what I was trying to say in that last post! I just saw it now, must have fallen asleep and hit post and autocorrect kicked in?! I'm as baffled as you!

I had my third revision I am now 7 months post op but I look crazy. Could you explain your process with swelling/scar tissue and if the nose changes drastically after 7 months?! Pleaseeee and thank you!

Ive had 3 done and looking to get a forth. All 3 of my surgeries were done by the same surgeon which was a mistake on my part. My nose keeps changing after I get surgery and it ends up looking all wide, bulbous and my tip drops. This time I will be going to a new surgeon to perform my fourth. You said you liked your nose up until your last surgery. Why did you get another surgery if you liked your nose?

Some jerk guy hit me in a rage and broke it. I have been having breathing problems ever since.

Why would you have so many done? Don't you think having so many done is just a little extreme?
