Hopeless After Three Surgeries

First rhinoplasty was to reduce bulbous tip, shorten the nose and improve my profile which i felt was too pointy. While the cast was on i could tell it was SIGNIFICANTLY crooked. Looked like the doc may have sewed the columella and tip on crooked? There was NO definition at all on one side...it was if it were completely empty of cartilage and was being pulled flat...also one HUGE nostril and one tiny one.
Went back to the same doc for revision he did a closed rhinoplasty and did VERY little..reduced side of the columella that appeared to be potruding in the large nostril and did a placed a tiny graft near the tip TO GIVE THE APPEARANCE OF BEING STRAIGHT. he tried to hide the problem rather than fix it.
3rd revision...different doc...he vastly improved the appearance of the crooked tip but it is still not right but NOW one side is STILL flat and the other now has a dent and ball on the other side...PLUS now when i smile there is pulling inside!
Horrible rhinoplasty experience. Much research has left me hopeless...i have not seen ONE rhinoplasty case that looks like mine...so i am thinking NO ONE is going to be able to fix this..
i think the primary doc sewed my collumella and tip on crooked....now 3 rhinos in...maybe i am beyond help? after last rhino tip is straighter but one side of nose is completely flat and lacking ANY definition ANYWHERE. The other side has a dent and ball on the side. Anyone know a GREAT doc? Is there such a thing??
Went for revision with rib grafts in Dallas, Tx....
