The Revision rate for Rhinoplasty is about 10% if you take all Rhinoplasty surgeons in all cases both primary and revision Rhinoplasty...IMHO.  Until you are certain that you want to improve the shape, of your nose, and you are seen by a qualified Rhinoplasty surgeon, who agrees that you are a suitable Rhinoplasty candidate with your parents during the consultation...you are not ready for a Rhinoplasty.
