Rhinoplasty Columella Scar? (photo)
I had primary open rhinoplasty two years ago and I'm generally very happy with the results. The only problem is a visible columella scar near one nostril. This area didn't seem to be closed properly after surgery, it wasn't gaping, but it wasn't a neat close like the other side which has healed beautifully. Any opinions on the best way to make this less noticeable? Dermabrasion? If scar revision is an option, is there a risk of it changing the nostril shape?
