Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon
Though your current appearance is fine, you could have revision rhinoplasty. However, wait another 6 months to a year to allow yourself sufficient healing time. We get a number of patients from Israel, but you will also find good surgeons there as well. Consult with 3 - 4 experienced and expert surgeons to understand your options.
It is certainly possible to make your nose a little narrower, though your current appearance is very acceptable. Waiting 9-12 months before revision is necessary to avoid unwanted problems and excessive scar tissue.
You are correct, you will need a revision but wait another 6-8 months. I have many patients from Israel, but assuming you don't want to travel to the United States, let us know where you want to have the surgery.

I understand your disappointment. You are only 4 months out of surgery and you will have many changes over the next few months. The swelling should still go down quite a bit. It is much better to have your rhinoplasty underdone. If you are not satisfied at about nine months then you should see your surgeon and let him know. I am certain that he would be happy to revise right about a year post op. Be patient it is really to soon.
Ide bridge no osetotomy
You are right. The nose is broad but not really terrible. After a proper waitng perod you can have your nose thinned. It may also require matching the tip and other structures to the new thinner bridge.There is still swelling present but I don;t feel it will thin to your satisfaction.As a revision specialist iit isnot a tough fix.
