Dent on Right Side of Nose
If the dent persists or gets worse over the next 6 months you can augment the depression. Over the past 35 years when patients like you come to our clinic I prefer to use cartilage grafts.
Dent in nose 3 months post rhinoplasty.
Dent in nose 3 months post rhinoplasty may be due to swelling around this. See your surgeon for an explanation and if not happy get a second opinion from an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon.
