Rhinoplasty Nightmare

Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to get a nose job. I never liked my nose, it was too big, too wide and I always knew I could look better. I was always teased as a kid cause of my nose and that brought a lot of insecurities. Every day I wished I could get a rhinoplasty to fix my nose, because I knew I could get a nose that suits my face better. All I wanted was my tip refined, my nostrils to look smaller and maybe an implant for my nose. Well I finally got my wish, when my mother decided to make my longtime wish come true and it actually became a nightmare.

After three rhinoplasty, my nose still looks the same as I came in the doctors door 2 years ago. I don't know If I should get another revision with the same doctor, another doctor or just accept that my nose won't get better. I've seen better nose jobs on african americans which I love the results, but mine seems to keep getting worse and worse, what should I do? I know my nose can look better.

I noticed because it started getting bigger and a little bit red around the tip area. My surgeon checked me and agreed that indeed it was infected. It has passed atleast 2 years since my implant was removed and I do agree that it has gotten a lot better. I still would get it done again because the tip got a little bit scarred because of the implant and it is still big.
