Botched Rhinoplasty- 35 Year Old Female- Revision Rhinoplasty on Horizon with New Dr. 12 Years Later - Atlanta, GA

I had rhinoplasty done by Dr. Burnstein and 12 years later I will be having revision rhinoplasty performed by another Dr. this year. My nose is quite a mess. Visible scarring, very visible asymmetry, deviated septum, breathing problems and all-and-all not a pretty or well-functioning nose. Having surgery is quite a big deal, I will now be paying thousands of dollars more to try to fix what has become of my nose. It is very unnerving and very scary to go through process again, knowing that secondary surgeries are more taxing. I am a 35 year old female and I had my surgery in 2002. The surgeon I am going to now (I had consultations with multiple) said Dr. Burnstein was aggressive in what he took out of my nose, leaving it to continually change over the years, the internal support structure is not in tact lost integrity over the years and will continue to do so as I age. I would have done revision earlier, but it is obviously costly, time consuming and after knowing that it can turn out not well, a very scary venture.
