Is A Hanging Columeller Normal After A Revision Rhinoplasty?

Hanging columella after revision rhinoplasty
You may see a relative hanging columella after surgery from the swelling in the area. Columellar struts can cause a hanging columella if they project to far downward, pushing the columella with it. I'd check with your surgeon to get a better assessment of what is contributing to what you're seeing.
