Revision Rhinoplasty accompanied by fear & anxiety. My nose kinda looks the same, or does it? (Photos)

Initial rhino to correct repeated childhood facial trauma and low self-estreem. Revision rhino for nasal asymmetry, bulbous tip, bridge widening from my initial work and low self-esteem (pattern anyone). Steroids conservatively admin'd one side at a time at 4th month and then two weeks later. Per MD there was a lot of scar tissue from my initial surgery especially around the removed implant Cartilage was used at the tip of my nose to "give it some shape." Progressive pictures.

Fear and anxiety after revision rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is a difficult procedure to perform.  Although a revision surgery was performed, on occasion a smaller follow up revision may be necessary.  With your history of nasal trauma, surgery,grafting ....., your case may be more complicated.

After reviewing your photos I wouldn't have fear and anxiety.  Your facial motions will distort your nose.  You dorsum may benefit from additional height or manipulation with a smaller surgery.

On occasion a small amount of filler may offer you benefit.  Discuss these issues with your surgeon
