First Rhinoplasty, Now Seeking a Revision
I've just hit a year and a half since my original rhinoplasty and couldn't be more unhappy. This has without a doubt taken a huge toll on me emotionally.
My original rhinoplasty was in hopes to smooth my bridge to remove the hump I was born with. I did not like the profile view of my nose prior to surgery but loved the front. Now a year and a half post surgery I feel the opposite. I now prefer the profile but absolutely hate the front. After multiple consultations on revisions most surgeons have told me the following is a description of my current nose. My nose was overly shaved down leaving an extreme slope look as well as an inverted V, the tip is asymmetrical and pinched, the right side of my nose has buckled cartilage leaving a round bump and the left side is collapsed. To say I'm unhappy would be an understatement. I traded one problem for four and am now having to face the road towards a revision. After consultations with my surgeon post surgery he did not seem to feel or understand the severity of the mistakes. However, being the one who has to look at my nose everyday in the mirror I feel the severity of the mistakes. This time around I am making sure to pick a surgeon who is qualified for this procedure. I have read multiple good reviews by Dr.Krau but sadly that was not my outcome or experience.
