I had a rhinoplasty surgery three years ago and the doctor completely messed it up. I have ended up with uneven nostril size, breathing issues, nose tip pointing more to the left side and broader bridge, which makes the nose appear very thick. I am thinking about getting it re-done by an expert Rhinoplasty surgeon who practices in NY or IL. Any recommendations?

Dr. Toriumi in Chicago is well known.
Chicago has a well-known and widely-respected surgeon for revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Dean Toriumi. My only experience with him has been through his scientific publications and presentations, but I respect his opinions and observations about rhinoplasty.
(I have some areas where I disagree, too, but these are on minor issues).
All the best,
