Hi, I am almost 7 months post-op closed male rhinoplasty and since the day I got my cast off I am very depressed. My whole face completeley changed. half of dorsal height was taken down from the bridge. Now I have a flat bridge. Also the tip cartilages have been removed aggresively resulting in I think scarred nostrils. Also I think I have an inverted V. I got noticeable dents on my sidewalls. Can I get some info about my nose and possible treatments(grafts needed?) Thank you for your time.

Dear from Holland,
- You can use cartilage grafting to rebuild the dorsum so that you can have the shape that you want, it just has to be placed carefully
- For the inverted V, it is a matter of lifting the cartilagenous portion of the nose to meet the bony portion (with or without spreader grafts) - this can happen after reduction of the nasal bridge and the cartilages fall off to the sides causing the upside down V
- Some cartilage grafts can be placed to fix the nostrils as well which would bring them down so you see less of the inside of the nose
