Lip lift changed base of nose and nostrils, creating wider appearance and crooked nostrils. Can this be corrected? (Photos)

Nose changing after Lip Lift
I advise discussing this with your surgeon. Perhaps a Kenalog injection to the sub nasal area would soften things up a bit. If the issue persists in another three to six months and still bothers you then surgery would be your only option. The goal would then be to counter rotate the nasal tip to make the nostrils less visible and doing this might require that other maneuvers be done as well to maintain a well balanced, aesthetically pleasing nose.

I agree that you have a nice result after a subnasal lip lift. The scar is still pink so it is still maturing. I would wait at least a full year before assessing the final result. Be patient.
