Protrusion from Columella into One Nostril After Rhinoplasty
I had open rhinoplasty 19 days ago - septoplasty, smr turbinectomy, cartilage supports to improve valves, and shaping of the end of long/hooked nose. The swelling's gone down a lot, nose shape looks good BUT within a few days of removing outer splint and internal splints at upper edge of nostrils, cartilage or something alongside the columella on one side has moved out and formed from top to bottom at the front of the nostril into a long red bony or cartilage "flap" protruding across the front of the nostril and makes the nostril look partially closed. What has gone wrong and what can be done about it?
