How many?

There is no absolute maximum number of rhinoplasties that you can get as long as the skin is healthy.  If you are still unhappy after multiple rhinoplasties you must consider a couple of possibilities:
1. Are your goals realistic
2. Are you choosing the best possible surgeon for your procedures

With each subsequent rhinoplasty, the procedures becomes more difficult since the
anatomical alterations are greater. It is best to seek consultation with a surgeon who
has extensive experience in rhinoplasty revision surgery. Judgment is as important
as the actual technique.

I'm sorry you've had unsuccessful results. Each successive surgery is more difficult and risky. As long as you select a surgeon who is very experienced in revision rhinoplasty you should do well. Look at examples of that surgeon's revision work.

Each time you have a revision rhinoplasty makes the tissues more difficult to handle. The skin gets thin, and the structural components can be difficult to handle.
