My nose feels bigger after third Rhinoplasty. What is recommended for my case? (photos)

I had a nose job and I waited a whole year and my plastic surgeon says my nose it’s ok but if I FEEL that’s bigger he can do a nostril reduction but I’m afraid it’d look weird because of the bulbous tip, What is your recommendation for my case? Would a nostril reduction work? Im so soooo sad because my nose before looked great and now it’s a mess.

You need to stop having operations on your nose! Allow a full year of healing than determine id you really need additional surgery...

    I would have to see more angles to give a recommendation for this.

It is difficult to give you a correct assessment without having the standard before and after pictures. I recommend sharing your concerns with your surgeon and try working with him. It may not hurt to have a second opinion from a local nose specialist in your area. Good luck.

Primary rhinoplasty can result in a wider and more flared nostril shape if the tip is significantly deprojected.  The best view to assess this is a base view.  Ask your surgeon to review preoperative and postoperative base views in order to get the best objective assessment.
