Rhinoplasty after trauma?
Keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do based on brief history and limited photo without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative procedure would not be in your best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeryand ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or facial plastic surgeon (otolaryngologist) that you trust and are comfortable with. You
should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Candidate for a reconstructive rhinoplasty
It seems from what you have described that you could be a great candidate for a rhinoplasty, yet a physical examination is required to provide you possible solutions.
The finest cosmetic results in any particular case are based on a variety of factors, including: the unique anatomy of the patient, realistic expectations, a well-informed and detailed discussion with your plastic surgeon concerning the best options for you especially covering a deep understanding of the pros and cons of any given choice you will adopt.
Please keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon online who offers to tell you what to do without a physical examination covering the nature and the status of the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative solution would not be in your best interest. With that in mind, it is the safest and for your best interest to find a plastic surgeon with solid experience and certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who is ideally a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons that you will trust and be comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Rhinoplasty to address a Crooked nose after car accident along with tip rhinoplasty
Sounds like you have been doing your homework, getting info from surgeons and are getting close to ready for a rhinoplasty
- Although the "soft tip" that you were told about is possible, there are ways to make it stronger in the surgery
- One of the best ways to look at the crooked nose is to view it in relation to the rest of your face, so a plan can be made.
- What you are hoping to achieve is common after a broken nose.
- The scar in the columella may need some slight revision too.
- Schedule a consult to discuss your hanging columella and the refined smaller nose that you are seeking.
