How to Find Good Doctor for Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision of bridge
In general it is a good idea to wait about one year before seeking a revision. There are a number of good reasons for this which your surgeon can discuss with you.
Finding a Surgeon for Revision Rhinoplasty
It does appear you will need revision surgery, but wait 6-12 months before making any decisions. Select a surgeon experienced in revision surgery and carefully review his/her results in nose similar to yours. Multiple consultations may be helpful.
You appear to be an excellent candidate for a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty.
I reviewed your concerns and the photos you posted. It seems you'd like to have your bridge raised a bit. I agree this would look attractive.
An Injectable Filler treatment could provide excellent nasal-bridge augmentation with no downtime, and no additional surgery. My personal preference is to use Silikon-1000 for permanent results.
If any of my colleagues wish to learn more about my experience with Silikon-1000, I am giving an instructional course at the upcoming Fall Meeting of The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). The course is titled "Off-Label Applications of Liquid Injectable Silicone (LIS)", and I will be presenting on 9/24/2010 at 4pm. Common conditions treated include: volume replacement, wrinkle reduction, lip enhancement, acne scarring, and correction of many nasal irregularities (“Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty”). I will also be describing the serial puncture, microdroplet technique that is essential for achieving desired results.
I hope this is helpful for you.
