Thank-you elisa,
For your kind word's, the one thing that does help is I keep telling myself my nose has looked liked this for all these years, so why should I start worrying so much about it now,I still don't feel comfortable about being around other people, so I concentrate on my family,,
Thanks again for your kind word's,, :)

We all experience regret at one point or another. What’s important is to learn and remember them, so that you can avoid the next occasion for regret. We wrote about this and highlighted a few on how you can avoid regrets and reach real happiness in life, goo.gl/NCC6qO

i had horrible regret after my Las Vegas nose job which was poorly done. After awhile,I came to accept it as it. Once I accepted it things happened to allow me to get a revision. Botched Plastics a company based in Nevada was able to help me so much.

I haven't been on here for awhile, actually I haven't been anywhere in quite some time, I think it was last year when I posted about my botched nose job, it was a up date, well just wanted you to know once your nose has been disfigured by what I call a butcher, life never get's better, i mentioned I had 3 revisions one as bad as the other, i stay in a constant depression, don't socialize, avoid situations that would make me have to be around other people, I've been looking at pic's of people that say they have had a botched nose job, and I'm sorry I have to laugh, because I try and try and can't see anything wrong with their noses, which that is really good for them,like I said before my primary PS, was suppose to remove the hump on top of my nose, nothing else, my nose looked normal just wanted the hump off, well the kind docter took it upon his self to literally chop the end of my nose off which left complete nostril show, the day he took my splint off was the day I literally died inside, I was told later by a docter, that the surgery is what caused my PTSD, that and the fact that when I went back to him to talk about my concerns he laughed in my face, from that day on I have never been the same, well I'm going to stop rattling, my computer is how I socialize now, my thoughts of suicide are always with me, but I would never do that to my children or grandchildren, so I'll sit and watch my life go by,and when my family is around I'll stick this forced smile on my face, when I have to go out I try and keep my head down, because I have had gasp's because you can see inside my nose, and I don't mean a little bit, in my last post I think it was last year, I mentioned how the whole left side of my nose has bumps and dents on it, so I also try to make sure nobody sit's on that side or stands on that side of my nose, it get's me nervous because I turned my head a couple times and caught a few people staring at it, I have been compared to a bird by my son when he was drunk, do to the fact the tip of my nose comes to a point, so you see my nose is so jacked up, that it has made it impossible to not be depressed, it would be one thing if I was born with a deformed nose, but to know I allowed a "BUTCHER" do this, it's to much for me to ever get over, I have been thinking I'am getting older, I'll be 64, and I think I'm ready to post pics of my beyond botched nose,, thanks for listening to me ramble, I wish you all the best, and please remember revisions aren't all their cracked up to be, literally Take care of yourself's, Debbie :cry:

Wow! I relate to what everyone has said. I volunteered for a few years at a mental health clubhouse, as I've been diagnosed with Bipolar it was recommended to me to give back and be part of the community. I've had Bipolar, undiagnosed, probably from my 20s. I didn't start a genuine road to recovery till I was 36. I got sober (about to celebrate 4 years!), attended AA meetings and commenced with therapy and medication in a way the was extremely difficult but very rewarding.

It's the battle of the external and internal. I could have had another revision surgery in the past 13 years. I've been on the cusp. I was about to go with Rizk, who had all the confidence in the world, and I in him, until I was given a very unique opportunity. Due to my Bipolar I qualified for Disability, which as a writer is a godsend, since I can work on my writing without having to do one of the many jobs that suck. I'd initially pursued acting (because I really was much better looking without this ginormous nose! Thanks, Medpor!), so I had a lot of the actor jobs, you know, the stuff they pay you for other than Off-Off Broadway blackboxes (a blackbox is a small performance space, where the audience is literally right up your nose! I think that's why I got self concious), so I had waiter and bartender jobs, and telemarketing, all of which I did well, and it's a type of performance, but they're not as fulfilling as your passion. I'm not knocking it, there's tons of fun people, and great careers in the service industry, but for me (especially after the bad nose job), I wanted to write.

So I guess what I'm saying is, God (I believe in Him now or something comparable), has put me in a situation I never thought I'd be. All my missteps have lead me here, finishing a Master's and being physically healthy. The doc who performed my revision (and you can see my pics, I have a big nose--the better to loathe my fate by), he performed a primary on a girl, with whom I corresponded, with disastrous results. It was from an old board, rhinoplastyrevision.com, and this doc has been mentioned here, in Australia, Dr. Paul O'Keefe. He cut some depressor tendon above her upper lip, and not only was she left with an undesirable aesthetic result (he removed her hump but widen her nose), but she was left with a permanent lisp and she can't smile! Scary thing is, he told me about the procedure himself, saying it helped the tip of the nose not to bop. I just nodded like whatever this doc wanted to do was fine. Wow, did I avert disaster! He coulda done that to me. I'd be devastated.

I also consulted with Michael Saks about a revision after I was displeased with O'Keefe's medpor implant. He told me to wait a year for the swelling and it may turn out all right. He had a nice office on Central Park South, and a year or two after my consult he had inadvertently killed a patient. I believe it was the anesthesia, but because he performed the surgery out of his office he didn't have the proper equipment as a hospital would to save her. He later lost his medical license.

Wow again! Now I'm coming back to another community that I've been away from for a while. I'm getting a lot out of communicating with similar souls. AA is all about alcohol and drugs and even in group therapy with my therapist and fellow patients I never speak of my nose because I'm embarrassed. I'd love to get it remedied, but until I do, I think communication is the cure to the many ails that flesh is heir to.

All the best!

You know what does not help? Reading 5 year old emails from your doctor from a year after your revision surgery. I must have blocked out how dismissive and downright insulting they were! He said I would basically never be happy, was impatient and caused this myself by being impatient (how?). The funny thing is, I emailed him back a "thank you" because he sent me a very long reply and I was clearly so demoralized by my whole nose ordeal. Two years post op, my nose was still painful and swollen and that was when it was difficult to get any response. I had to pay for a phone consult. The odd thing is, I know he has tweaked other people who had revisions. Why do doctors pick on the most vulnerable with their words and (lack of) deeds?

Insane01, everytime I read your posts, I feel for you deeply. It is amazing that there is an industry where people are allowed to behave so disastrously without real consequence. But the real thing that gets me is that you are there for your family and you are committed to being there for them -- that makes you beautiful.

Hi EPO,

Has your swelling settled? Did you receive steroid injections? And what did you revision entail: dorsal augmentation, tip recreation, spreader grafts?

i understand.I had an unplanned rhino (well planned by my primary, I didn't participate in the planning of my nose) and have been a mess, my entire bottom half of my nose is gone, my entire tip and he suture the hell out of it, tip grafted, shortened, reduced and narrowed my bridge. so much for liking my nose and not wanting changes, I haven't left the house in 5 months....prayign for revision and restoration every day. looking into Sam Most and Davis.
if you have any feedback lmk.. this rhino underworld sucks and to be pushed into it because your surgeon determined you need rhino versus seeking rhino is the worst experience.
