Medial Crus of Major Alar Broke Off, when to Fix?
I had rhinoplasty a month ago. My surgeon sutured together medial crus of major alar. My nose used to be curved. One of the medial crus of major alar broke off next day or so after surgery from the sutured center, curved back to the original direction, protruding in my nostril under the skin and pulling my nose to the side by not much. My surgeon will correct it through my nostril under local. He wants to wait for 6 weeks though. It is in my benefit to wait that long or should I do it sooner?
