I had my first rhinoplasty approximately 20 months ago. I'm very unsatisfied with my results. What is recommended for a revision? I only want to do this one more time and I want the correct surgeon. Are there any red flags I should look out for when looking for a surgeon?
I am unsatisfied with my tip (I attached a photo of it because I can't find the words to describe it) and it appears that my nose is asymmetrical (the left nostril looks bigger than the right one). I also have a raised bump on the right side of my nostril. I saw one surgeon and he said I would need to have cartilage put into my left nostril, he stated that I won't have a perfectly symmetrical nose (which is okay with my own realistic expectations). He also said that he believes the surgeon who did my primary rhinoplasty used a graft (which I was never informed about). I had a bump on my nose and the tip drooped before I had my primary rhinoplasty.
I was really impressed by his honesty and his secretary said that I should gather other professional opinions before I undergo the procedure. I'm starting to feel like I'm not a candidate for a revision. Is my nose fixable?
