I had septoplasty in 8 years ago, but my septum is going down and there is no tip. What procedure is available? (Photo)

Septal support failure
Your septum looks like it has inadequate support - maybe from trauma or the previous operation. You can see a revision surgeon to evaluate what can be done, but anything from septal reconstruction with ear or rib cartilage to restructuring what is there.
