would be helpful in determining if your diagnosis is indeed correct.
most important factor in achieving a beautiful result is finding the right
surgeon. Finding rhinoplasty specialists experienced in revision rhinoplasty is the first step. After this, consult with 2-3 of these surgeons in
person and determine your comfort level with their approach, demeanor, and
before and after results.
Pictures of your nose are needed to make a full assessment. But I doubt that your doctor removed any nasal bone, they were probably significantly in fractures which is why they look narrow now.
