Anybody had a third revision?!
- 2 years ago
I am a 47 years old man, and I currently live in Europe. I had my first rhinoplasty done in Iran when I was only 20 (in 1986). The results were extremely satisfactory, and I had 22 years of happy life with that nose; until 2008 when I decided to do a revision to correct a minor deviation. Five years ago I had a first revision done in Europe which happened to become the worst decision I have ever made in my life. As a result of this surgery, I got a very large so called “poly beak”, and a few other complications. One year later, in 2009, I underwent a third surgery (again in Europe, but with another surgeon). The poly beak was corrected, but the doctor gave me a nose which does not belong to my face. Things got even worse, and during the last four years I have got a lot of scar tissue. I haven’t been able to look into the mirror for five years now. I am a very unhappy person, and the shape of my nose has had a major effect on my self-confidence, my private life, and even my career. I am very scared to undergo a third revision, but at the same time I just can’t keep living like this … I am looking for a doctor in the US who can perform a third revision on my nose. Can anybody in this forum help me with that? Have any of you had three revisions? I really appreciate any comments …
