Revision Rhinoplasty... 2 Surgeries Later, Still Crooked.

I broke my nose 10 years ago in a horseback riding...

I broke my nose 10 years ago in a horseback riding accident. I had a small bump on the side of my nose so I decided to have a rhinoplasty. I also discussed lifting the tip of my nose because she said I had a slight "hanging tip."

I had my initial surgery in April of 2007. My nose ended up being crooked and my nostrils looked deformed.

I had a revision rhinoplasty done 8 weeks ago by the same surgeon who had done my original surgery.(I only paid for the cost of anesthesia) There is little to no improvement in my nose. I know that they say to wait a full year to see the results but I know that with my last surgery, if anything, my nose only got more crooked as time went on.

Sorry to see the poor results. You need to go for a revision. But you must choose the BEST and the most experienced rhino doctor. I have had 4 surgeries and the ends result was great .My 1st surgery was not that great, but my nose was not spoiled. I had not chosen an experienced doctor. After realizing my mistake, I went in for a revision surgery with some of the best doctors in the world. Success depends on the surgeon you choose.

The Dr. has not offered to refund me the money I initially paid for the surgery. I have discussed the fact that I am extremely unhappy, she wrote down the numbers of 2 other surgeons and told me that they had alot of experience with rhinoplasty. That was about it.

awww you had a pretty nose. I can see why you are upset. The nostrils do not match, not even close and the tip is crooked,actually makes your nose look longer. I wonder what your doctor has to say when you point out the obvious?

Yes GO no RUN for 2 opinions. Very below standard result.

I really feel for you, but I think there is a slight improvement! Your results seem quite similar to mine, I've only had one operation though. My surgeon wants to do some fixing in a few months (won't cost me anything) but now I'm really considering at least consulting others for a second opinion. It's so frustrating isn't it. Good luck.
