Can a rib graft be revised?
If the rib graft is bone, it can be modified, if it is something as minor rasping or onlay cartilage may be employed.
If it is rib cartilage, an additional small onlay may also be placed, or the opposite side carved thinner.
If the entire bone or cartilage needs to be re-positioned this may be best accomplished using an open technique.
The extent of the procedure depends on your presenting issues. I would suggest that you return to your original surgeon and discuss these concerns
