Some Improvement but Still Looks BIG to Me - Chicago, IL

I had one rhinoplasty to fix a collapsed nostril and reduce a hump on my bridge which was covered by insurance. Ear cartilage was used and things didn't turn out well. I sought a second one--a complete reconstruction (no insurance) where rib was used.

It looks better in some respects but I still think it looks huge and extra stuff was done that I didn't want done. My doc will do some additional surgery, but I have a much higher bridge, huge tip and the reconstructed side still looks strange.

I could use some advice and input. I'm including photos of my nose before surgery with the collapse, one after the first surgery and two after the second surgery--one is a candid and one is a retouched one from the surgeon.

did you spent $ 23000 ?

Yes, the doctor's cost was $14,500 but anesthesia (it was a seven hour surgery) was over $5000 and then there was the cost of the OR for seven hours a hospital room overnight and a few other costs.
