Revision rhinoplasty can usually treat both breathing issues, collapse of the nose during breathing as well as external cosmetic issues. However after prior trauma and surgery, the nasal anatomy is often quite different. It is important to see a revision rhinoplasty specialist for a comprehensive examination in order to determine how best to treat the many issues that may exist.

Without a proper exam it is difficult to say exactly what is going on. It is probably best to see your surgeon and be properly evaluated.
