Why is a crooked nose more difficult to fix with revision rhinoplasty?

Many of our Houston revision rhinoplasty patients will present with a crooked nose that they want straightened.  Revision rhinoplasty is a difficult operation given the scar tissue that lies under the skin and surrounds the cartilage.  This scar tissue truly envelops the cartilage making it stiffer, less malleable, and more difficult to reshape.  The cartilage therefore cannot bend as well which makes a crooked revision more difficult to correct than primary rhinoplasty for a crooked nose.
