Cosmetic revision rhinoplasty

From the photos presented, there are significant issues need to be addressed  by a revision rhinoplasty. It's important to know how much cartilages left on the inside the nose for potential grafting purposes. Ear cartilage may be necessary. The nose can be made straighter ,although not perfect. The hanging columella can be reduced. Choose your revision rhinoplasty surgeon revised based on extensive experience.  Doubtful medical insurance will cover any cosmetic issues.
