Is It Possible That my Surgeon Set my Nasal Bone at an Altered Nasofrontal Angle, Causing my Nasolabial Angle to Change?
I had septo-rhinoplasty (nasal fracture reduction to straighten a nose which was off center) 1 year ago and now my nasofrontal and nasolabia angles have changed and my nose appears shorter. The nasolabia angle used to be 95 degrees and is now 120 and my nose appears upturned (pig-like). It also projects too far outwards from my face (pinocchio-like). Is it possible that after the surgeon broke the nasal bone, he set the nose at an altered angle--causing the nasolabia angle to change?
Tip of nose too upturned.
