It is best to wait at least one year before undergoing a revision rhinoplasty procedure. Osteotomies will be required to straighten the crooked left nasal bone. Cartilage grafting from either the nose or the ear would be required to build up a scooped out bridge. Alar rim grafts would be required to improve the alar rim collapse present. For many examples, please see the Link to our rhinoplasty photo gallery below

The scooped out profile and the left nasal bone can be improved.
Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
