I think you have a result that can be improved.  I am sorry to hear about your previous experience with rhinoplasty, but there is hope and I recommend you see several surgeons who specialize in revision operations.

You may be a candidate for a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of your nose after two Rhinoplasty Surgeries.

I read your concerns and reviewed your photos:

In my view, you should reserve a third rhinoplasty surgery for a last resort. The most noticeable issue with your nose is tip asymmetry. Adding volume above your tip on your left, and below your tip on your right may be beneficial for you. My experience with procedures like yours is nearly exclusively with Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results.

Hope this helps you.

Your nose can be improved, in my opinion the two most important things you need are:

1. An experienced revision rhinoplasty specialist

2. The use of cartilage grafts to improve both on the shape and function of your nose.

Best of luck,

It is possible to improve on your nose with a third rhinoplasty. You should consult with surgeons that have ethnic rhinoplasty experience. This is not a hopeless case.
