Is there a way to match my nostrils that are uneven after rhino septoplasty surgery? (photo)

Hi I had a rhino septo plasty with some tip work nearly two years ago and my left nostril is considerably higher than my right.Before surgery it was never like this and I did not have anything done to my nostrils. It's very noticeable and people have commented. I was wondering if there is any way to match my left nostril which is to high to my right which looks normal as it did before. Thanks very much.

I think your requests are reasonable and can be performed with a closed rhinoplasty.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
