I had a Primary rhinoplasty in June of 2012.
To start off, I had a bump on my bridge, broad tip, and simply put, my nose "stuck out". It really stuck out even more on my oval face.
My Rhinoplasty procedure went well. I had twilight sedation which was great the first time around. My nose looked nice overall, however I had issues with the tip dropping and worse, breathing issues.
After waiting a year I returned for a revision rhinoplasty to put cartilage grafts in my nostrils to prevent nasal valve collapse. Unfortunately, this required "building my nose back up" and my tip couldn't be as narrow due to the cartilage grafts in the tip. I had the procedure recently so I haven't seen the final result of the second procedure.

Sorry you had to get a revision, but I know sometimes that's part of the process (I did, too). We'd love to see your before and after photos so we can witness your nose's transformation! :)

Thanks for sharing with us.  Did you use the same doctor for both primary and revision?
