Improving the profile after primary rhinoplasty
Your profile can be improved with cartilage augmentation to the dorsum of the nose. If you're having a functional breathing problem, then spreader grafting is recommended in addition to improving the aesthetic profile by placing septal or rib cartilage as an only graft. We specialize in revision rhinoplasty. I would consult with a facial plastic surgeon and review many before and afters to get a sense of the work that will be done.
