Revision rhinoplasty requires careful analysis and planning
The tip is bulbous and may require revision of tip sutures, a tip graft, and other maneuvers.
These findings are not unusual in revision rhinoplasty. Find a plastic surgeon with an interest in, and experience with, revision rhinoplasty.

It appears that you have many cosmetic and functional issues that need to be resolved. The best way to approach this is to have several consultation with computer imaging so that you could see what your results could potentially look like. The functional aspect, such as breathing, need a direct physical exam to figure out the issues and an appropriate surgical plan.
Nasal shape and breathing issues after rhinoplasty
1) Nasal shape. A revision rhinoplasty would be recommended. I use an open technique for rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty. Why? Because both are very difficult to do well consistenly.
2) Breathing. An exam of your septum would be the first step. An exam of your sinuses would also be helpful.
3) Speaking volume. This needs to evaluated in the context of your breathing.
You may need both a specialist to improve the shape of your nose and another specialist to improve your breathing and speaking volume.
