- Removing the hump and lifting the tip will make a dramatic difference
- The tip plasty portion - it is difficult to tell without a frontal view
- You can start looking for a revision rhinoplasty specialist, by the time you find one you like, you should be ready for surgery

The hump removal can be performed by shaving down both bone and cartilage. Medial and lateral osteotomies will be required after the hump removal. Lifting the tip can be accomplished with a combination of suture techniques to the tip, or cartilage grafting or shortening the caudal septum.
Important to have an in person consultation/ examination by revision rhinoplasty specialist to obtain the best results possible. For many examples of hump removal in our practice, please see the link below

Rhinoplasty is a difficult operation
First, I would wait a year before considering a revision. This will give you time to find an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon.
The technique I use is an open technique that allows me to visualize all of the anatomy. You need the dorsal hump reduced and the nasal tip angle higher to a more aesthetic angle. Without a front view of your face I can't comment on improving shape of nasal tip or width.
