Hang in there
I read your concern. Sorry to hear you are not happy. I agree that one should strongly consider waiting at least one year before any attempts be made at a revision rhinoplasty. Give it time and allow yourself some time to adjust to your new profile.
To respond to your question:
If it is the area where your nose and forehead meet, known as the radix, that you feel may be too low, a variety of grafts can be used to alter the radix positioning. Crushed cartilage wrapped in fascia, your bodies own "wrapping paper", can be used. This is a method of "raising" the radix.
If it is the entire profile of your nasal dorsum that you are concerned or displeased with, there are a few options. Your own nasal septal cartilage can be used to increase or alter the profile by laying it on top of the bone and cartilage. Additionally, a silicone implant can be placed to alter the profile as well.
It is also important to remember that all of these options come with risks. With each rhinoplasty surgery performed, the rates of complications increase.
Hope this was informative

How the Rhinoplasty operation is performed?
There are different kinds of rhinoplasty operations however we can divide them as the one that requires bone excision and the one that does not need bone excision. The main fact that we classify the rhinoplasty operations like that is that the results and postoperative period is associated closely with this fact. In the operations like “nasal tip correction”, “simple rhinoplasty” there is no need for a bone excision however these minor operations cannot be beneficial for everyone. The operation type is need to be determined by the surgeon according to needs of the patient. In these minor operations the rhinoplasty is performed with closed method. The bone and the cartilage tissues are not involved in the surgery directly. Small nasal bumps can be removed in these operations.
In the operation that needs the bone and cartilage tissues to be involved; open approach is used. In the procedures with open approach, the size, shape and functionality of the nose can be improved. The big nasal bumps can be removed and septal deviations can be corrected providing a better nasal airway.
Do your homework and while revision rhinoplasty can be extremely challenging, you can likely expect a nice improvement.
