Seek the advice of a rhinoplasty surgeon who specializes in secondary (revision) rhinoplasty to see if you are a candidate. Find a board certified surgeon from either the Plastic Surgery or ENT/Facial Plastic Surgery backgrounds who focuses his or her practice on rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty should produce a nose that both looks good and functions well. Significant advances have been made in rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty techniques over the past two decades. There has been an increased emphasis in the medical literature and at rhinoplasty symposia on the importance of structurally resupporting the nose -- as opposed to simply reshaping the nose.
Revision rhinoplasty frequently involves resupporting the nasal framework with cartilage grafts. If the cartilage from inside the nose (septal cartilage) has not been previously removed, then it can be used to rebuild the nose. In revision rhinoplasty, sometimes it is necessary to use cartilage that is borrowed from either the ear (auricular cartialge) or from the rib (costal cartilage).
