Many of my Houston revision rhinoplasty patients may come in with a crooked nose from a previous rhinoplasty. Crooked noses are difficult to get perfect, especially with a revision. With revision rhinoplasty, there is significantly more scar tissue surrounding the cartilage with less malleability to this cartilage. This makes straightening the nose more difficult as the cartilage has more memory. Utilization of strong septal cartilage or rib cartilage may need to be necessary to brace the nose and external framework.
