Sorry the first run was not good.

Consult with a very experienced nasal surgeon who does a lot of revision rhinoplasties and you stand a good chance of success the next time. You need not suffer the rest of your life.

I'm sorry you had an unfortunate surgical experience. Your nose will not change significantly in the future unless you have a revision rhinoplasty. Find an experienced surgeon.

Crooked Nose following cosmetic rhinoplasty

At this point you are a year out of surgery, and from viewing your photo you will probably require surgical correction to fix the flaws.  The nose does still appear to be crooked, the bridge is quite wide, and the tip also lacks aesthetics.  I suggest you seek evaluation from a skilled surgeon who specializes in revision rhinoplasty surgery.  Good Luck,  Dr. Corrado

Unhappy with a nose job

Dear Rhinoplasty Patient from Pakistan,
If you are not satisfied by your rhinoplasty results, a second opinion is what you need. You may need a secondary or revision rhinoplasty. There are a number of reasons for an unsatisfactory rhinoplasty outcomes; the most likely is an inexperienced surgeon who is not specializing in rhinoplasty. Revision rhinoplasty is designed to correct the underlying problem, which is either over resection or under resection of tissues, or both. The goal in revision rhinoplasty is to restore a natural looking nose that fits the face, using the person's own tissues.

Correcting the Crooked Nose

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

It is not uncommon to see a crooked nose after rhinoplasty especially if it was crooked before your nose job.  Correction of a Crooked Nose is difficult as most of the time it is due to a deviated dorsal septum which has a tremendous capacity to retain its memory unless the Rhinoplasty Surgeon understand how to straighten the septum.   This is the key element to correcting a Deviated or Crooked Nose.    If the SEPTUM is corrected and straightened, the rest of the nose will be much easier to correct as well.  Since it has been well over a years since your nasal surgery, I would suggest you seek an experienced Rhinoplasty Surgeon with expertise in revisional nasal surgery .

If you are unhappy because the nose is still deviated and the tip is not satisfactory, you should get an evaluation by a rhinoplasty specialist.
