The profile can be raised in many ways each of them has advantages and disadvantages...I would use diced cartilage from the ear or rib without surgicel packing
I'm sorry to hear about your experience and that you are contemplating revision surgery. From the photos you've posted, it appears that you could improve the appearance of your nose with revision surgery to build the bridge height, narrow the bridge, and refine the tip without making it so upturned. If you looking to go back to the exact nose you had before surgery, it would be unlikely. Please consult with a board certified specialist who can assist you with achieving the results you seek. 3-dimensional computer imaging can help you visualize what you may look like after surgery and serve as an important communication tool with your surgeon.
Rhinoplasty Revision to Restore Old Nose
Rhinoplasty revision to restore old nose. The following suggestions are based on the pictures you submitted. In all revision cases like yours a thorough examination is necessary before discussing your goals and describing alternative techniques. I would augment your bridge with diced cartilage/fascia grafts, eliminate the polly beak, lengthen your nose with a septal extension graft, and narrow and define your tip.
Revision rhinoplasty could restore some of the structure taken away
Revision surgery can add back height to your bridge and structure to your tip and most likely create improvements that you would find to be better than your current nose. But it is unlikely that surgery can truly restore your nose to exactly how it was originally. I would seek treatment from a revision specialist and advise that you be specific about what you would like and hold the surgeon to letting you know how likely it would be for you to get that outcome. Revision is more difficult and time consuming than primary rhinoplasty in most cases so it is helpful to see someone who does revision as a major part of his/her practice. One other piece of advice is to try to keep in mind that you are likely feeling regret and negative emotions about your past decision and the best mindset is to be forward thinking and to try not to linger in the past.
Your nose would be improved if the bridge was slightly higher, the tip was more defined and the nose was lengthened. This can be done with cartilage and fascia grafting. To make sure your surgeon understands exactly what you are looking for, pre-op imaging can be done. Best wishes.
Cartilage graft to the bridge of the nose
It is possible to build up the bridge of the nose, but it will never be the exact original nose that you once had. Cartilage grafts can be harvested from inside the nose, the ear or the rib to build up the bridge line. It's important to know how much cartilage as left on the inside of the nose from the primary rhinoplasty for grafting purposes to build up the bridge of the nose
