Her first rhinoplasty operation, performed elsewhere, left her with those two bizarre-looking bumps on the left side of her nose.  Her plastic surgeon told her that there was nothing that could be done about those bumps.  The photo on the right was taken after her revision rhinoplasty in my office.

Rhinoplasty is by far the most difficult of the plastic surgery operations.  You must be extremely careful in making your selection of a doctor.  FacialSurgery.com has a page containing advice on how to find a competent plastic surgeon.

Questioner: Can my Results Still Be Corrected or is It Not Worth the Risk?
Furthermore, Based on the Pictures What Can Be Done to Improve? Hi, I had an open rhino. about a year ago, I'm really unhappy with the results. I originally had a dorsal hump removed but the doctor put a whole bunch of grafts in my nose also. (I have oily med/thick skin and I think I still have shrinking/swelling left). However, it still looks droopy, long, wide especially when I smile or laugh. How do I find a good dr. that can fix my nose type, my last specialist surgeon had a great "record" but it obviously didn't cut it. Any info would help. Thanks.
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: I agree your nose would probably improve if it were shortened
Even on a revision, shortening a nose by raising the tip can be one of the most predictable changes to make. See my "Web reference" link for a morph I made of one of your images.

Shortening a nose like that requires advanced work on the tip cartilages, so be sure your next surgeon has shown you before and after photos of other patients of his whose noses were shortened attractively. Seeing photos is your only way of checking out a surgeon's skill.
