1 month after tertiary revision rhinoplasty my nose looks grotesque and freakish with bridge side wall dent can I get a filler soon. Looks scarey . It will be difficult to live like this a year .

Concerned: Concerning that you've have 3 rhinos at 31. As you've seen, rhinoplasty can be tricky and each additional procedure becomes moreso. It's hard w/o pics but you're level of worry concerns me. I would not have any more surgery for 9-12 mos. Fillers are not likely the answer.

How does one breathe after the nose base narrowed in a rhinoplasty?

Nasal Base Narrowing: The narrowest part of the nasal airway is the internal nasal valve, located about 2 cm into the nose. This may be narrowed by osteotomies or hump reductions that weaken the nasal sidewalls, but not by nostril reduction. That is not to say that nostril reduction cannot be overdone. Choose a surgeon with experience in this maneuver specifically who can discuss you options with you. ...Read more

See a board certified facial plastic surgeon for a second opinion, as he/she has training and expertise in both the cosmetic and functional aspects of the nose. ...Read more
