Rhinoplasty 1 Year Postop -disappointed with Results? (photo)

Who would be happy with this result? It's tweaked looking, hawklike on the one side, and far too narrow. I wanted a less wide nose and one that wasn't so high-bridged. It is still high-bridged and is now pinched way in, and it's just awful. I can't even hide these flaws with my glasses. I am ashamed, embarassed and feel like a freak. If I had known that this would happen, I would never have had it done. I did lots of research before I chose a reputable plastic surgeon. What are my options now?

While the before and after photos don't give enough info for me to provide you with clear guidance, I can tell you that your assessment is correct. I'm afraid you will require a significant revision. I recommend finding a reputable surgeon in your area who has experience performing revision rhinoplasty.

If you have further questions, please contact me.

Good luck!

You have been patient, but your nose will not improve in the future. I agree with your criticisms. Unfortunately, your only option is to find an experienced revision rhinoplasty specialist.

Yes I see your issues but the posted series of photos are of little help in determining what next surgery you need. It is a revision rhinoplasty with grafting but best to be seen in person by boarded rhinoplasty docs in your city. 

Pollybeak Appearance

Its a little difficult to discern your pics but it appears that you have a slight pollybeak deformity. You may also have had too much lower lateral cartilage removed. Your welcome to send some good lateral and frontal pics and I can image them for you.
