Hey everybody! I had my Rhinoplasty over a year and a half ago. Initially(2 months following the removal of the cast), my nose had a straight bridge along with a defined tip. It had met my expectations for the Rhinoplasty(this had been what was shown to me in the computer imaging). However, with the reduction in swelling and the formation of scar tissue, the nose developed a markedly rounded tip(sort of like a parrot's beak). I'm the only one who's really phased/dismayed by this--everybody else has been saying it looks so natural and they wouldn't change a thing.
So do you think I should get a revision down the road or stick it out with my current nose? I'm afraid that a revision will only worsen my nose( and plus, it's very expensive)--I mean, the scar tissue can be pretty unpredictable. Despite this, I'm glad that I now have a somewhat defined nose whereas before the nose job I had a very hideous nose(atleast by society's standards) that lacked any definition. Perhaps I'm still fixated on my nose because I was often traumatized in grade school-called names like Squidward, pickle face, eagle, and just other unpleasant names. But, a saying that really helped me out was "people with peculiar noses weren't created to blend in but stand out." So, I didn't really think much of my nose through those years and the teasing really died down into high school anyways(maybe the occasional tease but it didn't bother me much...I pretty much came to accept this was my nose and was willing to wait a couple of years to get it done). I had my nose done at 19 and as I previously stated there was a net improvement( I can certainly breathe better than I could before the procedure!)
Thanks for all the insight in advance. I'll get around to posting some pre-op and post-op pictures so that you could better evaluate my situation!
As promised, I'll provide some Pre- Op photos...I...

Maybe some of you can post some surgeons in the US who you have had a positive experience with! My main reason for posting this is because we're all our own worse critics, my own perspective may be warped...I'd love to get a different perspective in regard to my situation. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated!!!

He was polite, confident and owned up to his mistakes( even his aesthetic shortcomings). Furthermore, he said that he'd accept whatever insurance would give him( nothing out of pocket for the revision).
**Do you think it's a good idea to proceed with the revision? I'm a little hesitant because there's a potential to look worse. When I initially had the Rhinoplasty, my nose was as bad as it gets so I had nothing to lose. Now that I have a normal nose, it seems like a gamble(however, I do trust the surgeon and think he can do a great job)...
