I had a rib graft rhino. Why do Doctors do additional procedures while the pt is under the nife?

I only told my Dr to rise my dorsum, but he did a cephalic trim, caudal trim, and my nose narrow. Then I had to go back, because my nose felt so firm, and I could not smile without effort. He told me that he can take some of the scarring. He went thru my upper mouth, and something in the anterior nasal spine. After the swelling went down, my nose feels loose, or shifts when I move my head left to right. I also want to rib graft to be remived. WHAT CAN BE DONE TO FIX THIS?
