Many of my Houston revision rhinoplasty patients are concerned about a crooked nose after their previous rhinoplasty. Crooked noses, even without being a revision, are difficult due to cartilage memory. That memory and stiffness to the cartilage could be even worse with a revision due to surronding scar tissue. This makes the cartilage less malleable and more difficult to shape. Grafting is frequently necessary for a crooked nose utilizing septal cartilage or rib cartilage in a revision rhinoplasty when septal cartilage is not available.
