Is ear or rib cartilage always required with revision rhinoplasty?

Many of my Houston revision rhinoplasty patients have gone online and done their research regarding revision rhinoplasty and know that frequently it requires the use of ear cartilage or rib cartilage. However, this is not always necessary. Just because you have had a rhinoplasty does not mean that you have had a septoplasty. If there is septal cartilage present, then typically the need for ear cartilage or rib cartilage is not required for the revision rhinoplasty.
