Rhinoplasty graft options
Hello! If you are still stiff you are likely still healing. While grafts can be trimmed, revisions are seldom that easy and usually require much more work, resulting in another round of swelling and healing. It is difficult to provide any direction without an exam and photos. I would recommend seeing a couple experienced rhinoplasty experts for an opinion. Good luck!
Closed revision rhinoplasty
A full set of facial photographs are required to make any determination about a revision rhinoplasty with closed technique, due to the fact that revision rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult procedures to perform in the entire field of cosmetic surgery. A closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish revising the nose in the midportion, tip, columella and bridge line. Important to note if there is any cartilage left on the inside of the nose after the primary rhinoplasty for potential grafting purposes and to see the operative reports on what was accomplished from the previous surgery.

If your nose is still stiff, you may still be swollen. A spreader graft is often placed for deviation or airway issues. Removing it may cause these conditions to recur.
