As many of the surgeons have mentioned already, you should give your nose more time to heal. Generally speaking, the final result of a rhinoplasty procedure is typically achieved at one year. Swelling, even if it is not very noticeably, can still be occurring up to that time and you may continue to see refinement of your result even past this time. I always recommend that patients return to their first surgeon to work out their concerns prior to shopping for another surgeon to modify the rhinoplasty. As always, look for a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in revision rhinoplasty. Good luck!
I'm sorry that you had a bad first experience and am sure you are anxious to get your nose fixed again. But it's important to wait at least 9 month for your nose to settle before fixing it again. If in 9-12 months you are still unhappy then a revision is definitely possible. Most rhinoplasty surgeons take out the silicon implant and instead use cartilage to augment the nose. Good luck!!!
