A nose too short from rhinoplasty by another surgeon and what can be done about it

There are many reasons to lead to a shortened nose throughRhinoplasty.  Suturing techniques are the easiest to reverse and you CAN cut some sutures to make it lengthen again.  However if the shortening is due to cutting the septal cartilage the treatment to lengthen this situation is more involved and may need cartilage grafts that are situated in an extension type configuration (often called septal extension grafts)in order to lengthen the nose.  Your surgeon will really know how to do this for you. But if you were to get another surgeon to help you with this you could have your operative note sent to the new surgeon.  Don’t things can be done. You will look better!
