I had rhinoplasty in Dec to rotate the tip up and to even out a pointy nose. Now 8 month later there is still a hump on the lower right tip that makes my nose look very unbalanced. I cannot see my surgeon since I now live almost 5000 miles away. I am very embarrassed by this and want it fixed. I am hoping it is only scar tissue. Would steroid shots be a good idea? I am terrified of revisionAny advice would be great and a good doctor suggestion to help if I need surgery would be great. Thank you
Nose Tip is Not Symmetrical After Tip Rhinoplasty
Doctor Answers 4
Your tip asymmetry may be improved by a well-performed Injectable Filler treatment.
I read your concern and reviewed the frontal photo you posted. I see right tip fullness as compared to your left. Since your surgeon is not geographically desireable, you should consult an experienced Rhinoplasty Surgeon. 8 months after your surgery, an examination would reveal if the fullness is swelling or excessive cartilage.
If the asymmetry is due to excess right tip cartilage, a well performed Injectable Filler treatment may restore volume to your left tip and lead to a more pleasing appearance. If you want to reduce the fullness of your right tip, a Revision Rhinoplasty surgery may be necessary.
I hope this is helpful for you.

Asymmetrical Nasal Tip
Wait until all the swelling has resolved - the tip will be soft. DO NOT INJECT STEROIDS! See an experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeon. In the interim, don't be embarrassed; some degree of asymmetry is normal. Look at every part of your body from head to toe - nothing is symmetrical.
