I had rhinoplasty at 15. My nose a disaster. I look at it today and it still looks big, bridge is too wide, tip is too big. Front on it looks horrible. It makes me miserable everyday. My nostrils are crooked thanks to the inability of my first surgeon. I can hardly ever breathe normally. While it was bigger before I am still unhappy with it. I feel it completely takes away from the rest of my face. Any expert advice is welcome. Can anyone fix my nose? Or will another surgery makes things worse?

Reducing a Large Nose
Your tip can be reduced as well as the apparent size of your nose. Your columella can be lifted and/or reduced as well to improve the look of your nose. Your nostril asymmetry will always be an issue as it is for most humans, but it can be improved. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
Large Nose after Rhinoplasty
Without a revision your nose will not change so many years after rhinoplasty. As long as you consult with a specialist who does a lot of revision work another surgery will not "make things worse".
