Rhinoplasty after a previous septoplasty

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients may have had a previous septoplasty for a deviated septum in the past.  This is important to note and an assessment of the septum needs to be made during consultation for remaining cartilage.  Rhinoplasty requires cartilage for grafting purposes.  If there is minimal remaining septal cartilage, ear cartilage or rib cartilage may need to be used.
