uneven nostrils and crooked nose after 2 revision rhinoplasty
I have had 3 rhinoplasties. I am still not happy with my results. My first rhinoplasty left me with a very upturned nose. This made my nostrils very visible and at that point i noticed my left nostril was slightly larger than my right one. I never noticed this before my surgery so I am not sure if it was always like that or if it happened because of surgery. A few years ago I went in for revision rhinoplasty. I was concerned over my nostril asymmetry and my upturned nose. It seemed like the right side of my nose was collapsing also. The doctor said he could make my nostrils even, and that he was going to put cartilage to support my collapsing side (rightside), and bring the tip of my nose down. Well I noticed that he put the cartilage on the left side of my nose, which in my opinion didn’t need the support. This created the nostrils too look even more uneven. It also changed the shape of my left nostril, it is more rounded and my right is more flat. He did bring the tip of my nose down. But my nostrils are very asymmetrical and different shapes. My left nostril is larger and more opened up because of the cartilage graft inside. My breathing is also blocked from the cartilage graft. I cant breath from my left nostril. Last year I went in for yet another revision the doctor said he would correct this. He didn’t, I still have the same problem. My nose looks very crooked in pictures, I never take any front view pics because of this. The crazy part is he is awell known and well respected surgeon. He is also super nice and I just don’t know what to do now. I am so unhappy with these results and now I cant breathe. He mentioned something about injecting something to dissolve the cartilage. Is this a good idea? Please help should I have another revision with this doctor???
