Why cant I have a normal nose?

I have had 3 rhinoplasty procedures which have left me mentally drained and scarred for life. I have been dealing with this dark chapter of my life now for over 5 years, I am very depressed and it is interfering with my daily sequence of events and the people around me. The first 2 surgeries were botched in Tijuana I take full responsibility for this because I was balancing a budget looking for the best deal. The third surgery was 2 months after my 2nd procedure and took place in Arizona by an expert rhinoplasty surgeon. During this third revision procedure I had the columella inserted deeper back into my face, bone was broken to remove hump from the bridge and the tip was refined. When the cast first came off I loved it. Three months later I am heartbroken left feeling disfigured. My nose keeps changing shape it feels like it is getting worse the supratip area is bloated along with the tip which has left me with assymetrical profile views. All I ever wanted was to have a normal nose which doesnt draw attention I am soo depressed right now almost suicidal I don't know what else to do. I have sunk over 10k into surgeries trying to get a normal looking nose but it seems like it just isnt meant to be... for anyone out there considering rhinoplasty for small imperfections I urge you to strongly reconsider your disposition.

I can almost guarantee that your tip will go down. even though i did not have any work on the tip, the tip remained swollen for almost two years and its unbelievable how much smaller the nose goes as time moves on.

Mk87 I know how you feel, years ago I was concerned about my acne and decided to go with doctor who specialised in dermatology and plastic surgery, he Rx accutane, I really didnt have acne that bad but everyone in the office raved.about the results well, the drug reacted with horrible results I had acne all over explosion, even my eyelids this doctor, said it was.just cleaning out.my pores..bullsh t!!. I was left deformed with severe scaring, I quit my job and became a hermit, I have not stopped and continue to find methods to erase the scaring, their are good doctors out their that can help, before I had to go by local word of mouth through family, thank GOD for this sight! Now you can share with others your experience, please let the communitu know about the names of the doctors in tijuana,mx who did this so it wont happen to others

If you are considering rhinoplasty please just be happy with your natural look that God blessed you with. I used to be so attractive now I wake up everyday to this ongoing nightmare I cant believe what I have done to myself. I am hideous I have destroyed the very foundation of who I am. I hold onto to this false representation of hope that things will get better even though deep down I know they wont. I have lost the love of my life, my job, my motivation and most of all my self respect. I see the error in my ways I paid sunk thousands of dollars for what? I am so depressed everyday a little piece inside of me dies sometimes I wish I could sleep forever. God please help me or just take my life.

almost 7 months ago in Arizona sept 2012, but I had a tip plasty three months prior to that june 2012 in mexico. i went down there to talk to have my 3 month follow up in Az and was literally laughed out of the office. I am convinced my surgeon is a wack job he is only thinking by the dollar I will never go back. I like the shape of my nose I just pray the swelling in the tip goes down ALOT.

I have been going through the same thing for the past three years. i had a revision rhinoplasty which I was very pleased with at first, but as the time keeps passing I realize that I am going back to square one where I spend hours staring at my nose thinking why is the way it is and getting depressed to the point where I can not even talk to people. i dont know what else to even do. My nasal skin is very thin and I can go under another surgery as my nose is too weak for it.i just wonder how long will it keep changing from now. I wish I had never done anything to my nose and I would not have to be going to this never ending stress and depression, I might have not had the nicest nose, but at least I would know it will not be going any worst, where now I wake up every morning and first thing I do is look at my nose

I think You look great just let time take its course it takes a while to fully recover from a rhinoplasty no matter what these surgeons say its anywhere from 2-5 years that is a Fact just let time do its thing hun more surgery will mean more healing time

I'm truly sorry you're going through so much anguish about this. I do agree with you, that if you want a rhinoplasty, be sure it's because you really dislike your original nose and are not expecting perfection, but improvement.

You still have a chance of your nose changing for the better since you're just three months out. Often it can take up to a year to see your final results (but I'm sure you've heard that before).

Please keep us posted on how you continue to heal. Virtual hugs! And remember, it's just a body part. It doesn't change the special person that YOU are.

I am hoping the tip goes down I am satsified with the shape all my mental anguish lies within the tip.
