Wait Until Twelve Months Post-Op
Seems you would have had a better result stopping after the second surgery and not going forth with the third. From observing the photo, perhaps the septum is being over-corrected during each operation. Also, the time you waited between surgeries and if you wore splints has not been included in your information. At this time, my best advice would be to wait 12 months after this last surgery to see what the final result will be. Contact the surgeon who did the last revision and follow up. I'm sure they can best explain your situation and what is going on post-operation. "Dr. D"
Options for Revision Rhinoplasty
First of all, because you have had as many procedures as you describe, caution must be taken when performing any further rhinoplasty work. I usually like, in cases such as yours, to use Goretex to help fill in the areas of depression that is creating the appearance of curvature, an approach that can realistically straighten out the nose by 70% or more in most cases.
