This nose collided with an object harder than the nose, with the results we see above left.  The tip was pushed down, and there is a divot along the dorsum.  Reconstructive surgery can correct these problems, straightening the nose and repositioning the tip.

Questioner: Is There a Way to Put a Very Slight Curve in my Nose Without Surgery?
I had a revision surgery 3 weeks ago. I was left with a too scooped nose so I wanted cartilage places to make it a little more straight with a slight curve. I feel that my nose is too straight now. Is it possible to get a slight curve without having surgery again?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Revision rhinoplasty takes longer to show the final result
Hi, Eliza,

Three weeks is too early to judge the results of a revision rhinoplasty. Your nose will be changing and losing swelling for at least a year, more likely 18 months or so.

Also, revision rhinoplasty is so difficult, that it's rarely wise to operate to change anything "slightly." Every time you have surgery, some new feature will appear to bother you. My opinion is that you should back burner the idea of more surgery for at least a year or so.
