Troubled by pointy nose tip?

I have had 3 op on my nose to try fix the tip because it is long and pointy and people are constantly on my case about it. All operations have failed to bring my nose tip in and make it look normal. After every 5 to 6 months of operation my nose go back to its original configuration. Why is it happening?

Pointy tip

Given that you have already had 3 unsuccessful surgeries, I would recommend you schedule a consultation with one or more plastic surgeon that specialize in revision rhinoplasty.  A revision rhinoplasty on a nose that has already been operated on presents unique challenges that not every plastic surgeon is comfortable addressing.  It is important to find somebody that is experienced in this situation.
