  •     Too small and upstairs nose
  •     Nose asymmetry
  •     Not fixing the hump on the nose
  •     Too small nasal holes and so on.

One of the reasons for these problems is not choosing an adept nose surgeon.

In some cases, nasal reconstruction requires cartilage and graft transplantation.

How is a secondary nose surgery?

In open nose surgery, a small incision is made on columella to remove the skin from the skeleton, but note this. Because of the complexities of secondary nasal surgery, nose surgeons usually use this method for better vision. Also, in open rhinoplasty, cartilage linking and grafting are easier.

But in closed nasal surgeries, there is no shear on columella and all the cuts are inside the nose.
