Revision of collapsed nose
Correction of a collapsed nose likely requires grafting using your own cartilage. You need to find a surgeon with extensive experience in rhinoplasty and advanced grafting techniques. Don't rule out the possibility of going out of state.

Who should perform a revision rhinoplasty for a collapsed nose
You should consult with a rhinoplasty specialist with extensive revision experience to see what can be done to improve your nose.
Finding someone who is board certified in facial plastic surgery or plastic surgery would be a start, but not all plastic surgeons focus on nose surgery.

Revision rhinoplasty in Pittsburgh
I trained in Pittsburgh and I am not certain who is best there for revision rhinoplasty. Some of the surgeons who did a fair amount of rhinoplasty are: Guy Stofman, Dennis Hurwitz, and Michael White. However, for a difficult revision, you may want to drive up to see Bahman Guyuron in Cleveland or get on a plane and head to Beverly HIlls, Dallas, or New York.
Fixing a collapsed (saddle) nose
Assuming your collapsed nose is a saddle nose, it can be fixed. It typically requires the use of a large graft of bone (from the skull) or cartilage (from the ribs) or less commonly man-made or cadaver material. Look for a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Facial Plastic Surgeon who has experience in revision rhinoplasty.
