Due a revision septorhinoplasty with bilateral spreader grafts inserted via a closed approach. Please advise benefits vs risks?

I had a failed primary 2 and a half years ago with has resulted in some breathing problems mostly on one side with possible NVC (valve is very narrow), some pain and tightness, and numerous irregularities mainly around the middle 3rd, and in particularly on my left side where the upper lateral cartlidge has fallen out of position. Please can you advise on the best course of treatment and highlight the positives and negatives of the spreader graft approach? Thank you very much for your help.

Closed placement sounds like a reasonable approach given your description. An exam would be imperative in this case.

I almost routenely place spreader grafts in both primary or secondary rhinoplasties done through a closed approach. If your PS feels that is what would help in your situation I would not worry about it. I would need a full examination to be more specific
