Comparing revision rhinoplasty surgeons?
When looking for a revision rhinoplasty surgeon, the following things should be considered: Credentials, experience performing revision rhinoplasty, a good amount of before and after photos showcasing the surgeon's results, great patient testimonials, and the office. Skype consults are a fantastic option for patients who will be traveling for surgery. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Cartilage grafts for revision rhinoplasty
There are many surgeons in United States that are skilled in revision rhinoplasty procedures. Cartilage grafts are usually harvested primarily from the nose, however if the nose is depleted of cartilage, then ear cartilage grafting is used. Rib cartilage is used in select cases when extensive amount of cartilage grafting is required. Osteotomies and alar reduction are very routine in the field of rhinoplasty.

You would get better advice if you post some photos of your nose. If your from Europe, use websites and the web to research your revision doctor. They also should be willing to talk you on skype or phone prior to your visit.
