Surgery is necessary to have a symmetrical columella.
Thanks for posting your photo. There is no way to fix your uneven columella without surgery. Each person has different shape and size of columella. It influences much on your proflie look. Currently, your columella and lower lateral cartilage look asymmetric. You might need correction on these areas.
Rhinoplasty for a bump
- That bump is likely your cartilage shape under your skin
- You can try injectible fillers to make it more symmetric, and that can be determined with a physical exam
- I am not sure I understand about the shaving, do you shave your nose?
- When you are ready, please see a rhinoplasty specialist who can address all of your concerns
