Revising a rhinoplasty with septal cartilage and thick ethnic/Asian skin?

Can anyone advise me?I had open rhinoplasty using a small medpor implant topped with ear cartilage and it looked okay by week 6 but an injury (two) made it HUGE. It swelled up again even bigger than when the cast came off and it looks like that now--just horrible. It's asymmetric as well. One side healed great; everything else (dorsum, left side, tip) is lined with oily scar tissue.I would like the scar tissue removed and a little projection and definition--that's all. I found a surgeon that said he wouldn't need to pack the nose. Is that realistic? Is septal cartilage better and safer than ear?
