Rhinoplasty Alternative for Broad Nose After Orthognathic Surgery?
I had orthognathic surgery (leforte 1), 5 months ago to correct a gummy smile. The surgery has caused my nose to broaden at the base when I smile even though my doctor used an alar stitch. Is there anything that can be done to correct this other than Rhinoplasty?
