I'm sorry that you have had to go through 3 prior procedures and are not happy with the outcome.  You realistically have only one more shot at the nose and be prepared to harvest tissue while doing so, such as cartilage from your rib, to accomplish any improvement.  I know that it's hard to hear that, but after so many procedures, you are entering a slope of diminishing returns.  I would focus on finding a board-certified specialist to performs revision rhinoplasty on a regular basis using advanced autologous grafting techniques.

Good Luck!
