Can I bring my old tip back?
Thanks for your question.
Carefully created and strategically placed cartilage grafts can help elongate you nose and reposition the tip to a less upturned position. It will be improved depending on the flexibility of the tip skin, but it won't look perfectly like your old nose..
A consultation with a revision rhinoplasty specialist is important for you to best understand your options and limitations when it come to having more surgery performed on your nose.
Additionally it is recommended that you wait until you are 1 year post-op to have the best chance for the outcome you want.

Getting your original nose back after rhinoplasty
To get your exact original nose is near impossible. Revision rhinoplasty is much more challenging than a first surgery. Specific deformities require aggressive techniques. There may be functional breathing problems that need correction. The goal is to address these problems while improving the overall appearance.
I would sit down with a revision specialist who can evaluate your nose and discuss the specific issues that pertain to your nose. This is not a decision to be rushed. Wait a full year for your nose to settle and meet with multiple surgeons. The risks are higher, so it's important that safety comes first.
