Hi! It has been almost 7 weeks now from my sill excision. The problem is i was pretty sure 5 mm from each side would give me a good change and the base width i was looking for. The surgeon told he indeed removed 5mm from each side but the results are so week. I mean i feel no more than 2 mm are removed.. i still have a large nose,and flaring nostrils..which bothers me a lot. Please could you confirm if this is indeed a 5mm skin removal results? and if i do revision will i hav the result i want?

Revision Rhinoplasty and nostril sill reduction
Residual swelling may subside and give you further info to determine whether you can safely perform another nostril sill reduction.
Right now you probably have a lot of swelling and you should wait six months to a year to see how things look.
Alar base modification
The only one that can confirm for you whether or not 5 mm was removed or not is the surgeon who performed your operation.
