Seek a consultation from a revision rhinoplasty surgeon

It sounds like the revision surgery was not done properly. Rhinoplasty is a very complicated surgery, and it can be done improperly. It is recommended that you seek a consultation with a surgeon that specializes in revision rhinoplasty surgeries. I specialize in revision rhinoplasty and would offer you to contact me for a consultation. Visit the Institute for Rhinoplasty and Revision Rhinoplasty for more information about revision rhinoplasty. Good luck!

I'm sorry you have had bad experiences with your previous rhinoplasty procedures. Without pictures it is impossible to make specific recommendations.  You should consult with a surgeon who truly specializes in revision rhinoplasty. Hopefully you will only need a minor revision.

Without seeing your nose it's hard to say what a good next step is. The dent may respond to a soft tissue onlay graft, but that wouldn't improve the nasal imbalance you're seeing.

This imbalance may benefit from revision, but an examination is necessary for this assessment.

This is a tough question to answer.  Every time the nose is operated on... the more scar tissue develops.  This makes things much more difficult each time you go to the OR.  Subtle dents may be corrected with soft tissue filler.  This may be where you are headed.
