I had Septo-Rhinoplasty about 9 months ago. I now have uneven nostrils that can be noticed in front of the nose as well as under. I don't think it is caused by swelling. How can it be fixed ? Is it complicated ? Thank you.

Asymmetric Nostrils After Septo-Rhinoplasty?
Nostril asymmetry is the norm, and yours is not extremely marked. Though you can always revise a nose and nostrils, the fix is never perfect and may not be worth it.

Thank you for sharing these photos. It seems that your caudal septum has a slight curvature, or even a subtle dislocation. This can be determined after a thorough examination, and relatively straightforwArd to improve.
