Unhappy with Rhinoplasty Results; 7 Months Post Operation. Recommendations? (photo)

I had a limited rhinoplasty about 7 months ago. I had very pronounced hump on my nose. The goal of the surgery was to reduce that. However, I don't feel enough was taken off and it did not come out looking the way I had planned. Also, the points of my tip are crooked and I feel my tip looks a little big from certain angles. What do you think? What could be done to improve it? I still think it is too big for my face and my jawline.

There is asymmetry of the nasal bones and your tip. Both problems can be improved with a revision, but wait another 5-6 months until heeling complete.

At seven months it is still a bit early to have a revision of your rhinoplasty.  I would give it a full year before having anything done to revise it. Good luck.

Hi Stephanie,
It looks like your tip cartilages are asymmetric and that your nasal bones are too wide. Your solution is a revision rhinoplasty with tip resculpting and bilateral osteotomies.  Also you would probably benefit from a chin implant to align your chin more with your nose. Your concerns are justified, you need to find a good rhinoplasty surgeon. Feel free to forward your pics through my website and I can image them for you.
