You would need to see an experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeon. If you have valve collapse, then you will probably need cartilage grafts from your ear. This is usually easily tolerated and effective. An open approach to your septum with advanced techniques to straighten a caudal septum may be helpful. There could be hope if you find the right surgeon for your problems. Atrophic rhinitis is very difficult to cure, so you must be realistic about your expectations.
