Revision Rhinoplasty - starting to feel it will never be fixed!

I've had a rhinoplasty performed 2.5 years ago to reduce a hump. It looked OK in the first few weeks but then I could see that I had a shadow across my nose and a bit of a depression on the sides. The surgeon did a minor revision, but it looked no different. So, I had a consultation with another top rhinoplasty doctor in town. He said what I have is an "inverted V deformity" and that he could correct it with spreader grafts. I had the revision done, and there has been no improvement. The doctor said he came across some cartilage issues and was only able to place a thin piece.  It didn't make any difference. So, now I've seen a third rhinoplasty doctor and he said my main problem is that my nasal bones were not reduced enough and that is causing the "inverted V effect I see" in my nose.  I don't know what to do. Any advice is appreciated.
