This article reviews the case of a 45-year-old female who had undergone previous rhinoplasty in which there had been overaggressive resection of the nasal skeletal architecture. A revision rhinoplasty was preformed using available autogenous septal cartilage and various porous high-density polyethylene implants. One year after the procedure, the patient demonstrated restoration of nasal architecture and persistent aesthetic outcomes.
