contouring. This is due to internal suturing. Any concerns about revision should be
held off for a minimum of 6 months. Most issues resolve themselves in 6 months.
I recommend you wait 6 months and then see if the nostrils look symmetrical. You
never revise a rhinoplasty within the first months of surgery. There is swelling and
other factors which play a major role. Healing needs time. If you are not happy
after 6 months, then see your Plastic Surgeon regarding a possible revision.
