Best to Get More Opinions for Best Septorhinoplasty
Unfortunately you should get another opinion (or two!) There is way too much difference in opinion. I would stay away from cadaver cartilage. I would be happy to give you an expert opinion, but would have to examine your nose. Good luck and be well.

Wow--no wonder patients are confused about rhinoplasty.
1 no need for rib or ear cartilage if you have enough in your septum.
2 the hump and bulbous tip can be done naturally without a "done look"
3 see an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon who has before-after photos of his work or speak with his patients.
4 see another revision rhinoplasty surgeon.

A rhinoplasty procedure is cosmetic and must be paid for by the patient. Placement of a spreader graft on the concave side after harvesting of septal cartilage and insertion underneath the concave upper lateral cartilage can help with breathing and cosmetic. Adenoids typically disappear at puberty, so they're usually not an issue with rhinoplasty. Allergies can make the turbinates enlarged so they should be treated with allergy testing, allergy shots nasal sprays and antihistamines. If the patient has failed medical therapy, then consideration for turbinate surgery is in order. for many examples and more information and our rhinoplasty photo gallery, please see the link below
