One of the advantages of using an artificial material to build up the nose
(as I did here) is
its easy availability: just unwrap the package. Many plastic surgeons like
to use the patient's own cartilage to augment a nose like this. Frequently,
however, a nose that
has been injured has broken and injured cartilage inside, which might make that
cartilage unavailable for the task of augmenting the nose.

I 100% Have a Pollybeak Def from Going on 4 Rhinoplastys, Should I Go Through with the 4th?
first rhinoplasty almost 2 years ago now, the results were horrible & my nose looked twice the size as it naturally did. Since then my surgeon suggested another 2 closed rhinplasty to fix that and a twisted look from not enough taken off one side of my bridge. Since the 3rd still very unhappy, I have a pollybeak he says and is now soon booking me for an OPEN rhinoplasty which i am worried about because I dont want my nose to collapse or anything and he said nothing about grafting, what to do, help

Dr. Denenberg's answer: A reasonable revision operation might help your nose significantly.
I'm sorry to hear about your experiences. It could be possible to make improvements in your nose. If the bridge of your nose can be built up just a small amount, and the polly beak taken down just a small amount, it can make a huge difference in how natural your nose looks.

You should not have the same doctor operate. Revision rhinoplasty is extremely difficult operation, and your surgeon has probably proven satisfactorily that he might not be up to this job. Also, you must have realistic expectations. It's too late to end up with a stunning gorgeous nose -- you should be seeking a nose that looks natural and does not draw attention, and then leave it alone forever!
