My Rhinoplasty last year went badly, the surgeon offered free surgery but I'm unsure if I should let him operate again. Advice?

It sounds like you are unsure about this surgeon. As such, I would recommend that you see other surgeons for a second opinion. You can make the final decision after having met with a few surgeons. Make sure they are board certified in facial plastic surgery or plastic surgery.
Be sure your surgeon is an ABPS certified/ASAPS member surgeon that specializes in revision rhinoplasty. Best of luck! Instagram: drgeraldminniti
Without photos, it is difficult to provide what surgical route to go and whether the revision would require a rib graft. I would suggest scheduling a second opinion based consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and Hyperaesthetic Surgeon that specializes in revision rhinoplasty's.

Revision rhinoplasty with unexpected results?
I would get a second opinion before having a rib graft done. You should see a very experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeon. It is very unusual to need a rib graft for the usual revision rhinoplasty since there often is enough cartilage left in the septum and ears without needing a painful and expensive rib graft.
Should I Have My Primary Rhinoplasty Surgeon Do My Revision
It is difficult to answer your question without seeing pictures of your original nose compared to your present appearance. If you have doubts I suggest you get a second opinion from a revision rhinoplasty expert.
Is your surgeon trustworthy?
Honestly, without seeing you in person, it is impossible to say. My best advice would be for you to schedule a consultation with another board certified plastic surgeon in your area and see whether or not his or her recommendation lines up with your surgeon's. Rhinoplasty is an extremely complex procedure and isn't necessarily a black mark on your surgeon that you need a revision.
