Choosing a Surgeon for Revision Rhinoplasty
I encourage you to consider a revision. I suggest you consult with another surgeon who specializes in revision rhinoplasty before making a decision about who should do the work.

A revision rhinoplasty is more difficult than a primary rhinoplasty due to the previous trauma, scar tissue and the anatomical alterations previously performed with the primary rhinoplasty. Choose your second surgeon based on extensive experience for best results. A closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish straightening the bridgeline, removing the spreader graft that t is sticking out of the bridge and insert it where it needs to be underneath the concave upper lateral cartilage in the mid-portion portion of nose. closed rhinoplasty accomplishes making all the necessary incisions on the inside of the nose, not on the outside across the columella. Osteotomies placed in the nasal bones can accomplish narrowing and straightening the bridge line. For more information and many examples, please see the link and the video below
