Your nose can be improved
The issues you show and describe can be improved by revision rhinoplasty. If you have breathing problems, insurance can potentially help decrease the cost for revision surgery. The best first step is to contact your surgeon, if this is a possibility.
Progressive changes in the nose after rhinoplasty are common and actually expected as the skin contracts over the cartilage over the years. However, as surgeons we hope that the changes will be favorable. While a bit challenging, the problems with your nasal appearance are not uncommon and likely correctable. Regarding it being reimbursed, please speak to the original surgeon, and/or there might be partial insurance coverage if you have breathing problems.
