How to fix a small, short, crooked nose after a bad primary?

Hello, Is it possible to use spreader graft to 1-widen the upper and the middle part of the nose and fix the deviated septum 2- use dorsal graft to add projection to the bridge, 3- widen the tip and derotate it in one procedure without any risks? Thank you.

Revision rhinoplasty requires precise planning

The exact plan for your revision rhinoplasty really requires a thorough consultation with a plastic surgeon who is experienced with revision rhinoplasty. Spreader grafts may be useful in this case, as other grafts and maneuvers including revision septoplasty may be useful. 

Best of luck.

Revision rhinoplasty

All the things you described can be performed.  There is always risk with further surgery, and you would need to be evaluated in person.

Revision of a Small, Short Crooked Nose

The techniques you mention all can be used to correct the problems you describe but I dn't know if these are appropriate for you. Nothing can be done without some risks. Consult with a revision specialist to discuss your options, establish reasonable goals, and clarify risks.

Revision #rhinoplasty

The improvements you are seeking are all possible. All surgical procedures involve risks. You will need to consult with very experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeons to discuss your goals and the associated risks. You will likely need a rib graft as this is required in most augmentation rhinoplasty cases, especially revision cases. Posting good quality photos of your frontal, profile and base views would help me provide a more specific recommendation for your particular case. 

Best of luck!
