Don't know what to think yet. I'm only one month post. The overall nose is fairly straight if considering if the PS did a good job on that. If it is not for the jagged scar on the side of my nose, I would be fairly happy.I had alar base rhinoplasty a month ago and the wound had closed from both sides of my nose. The right side looks pretty good (not perfect yet), but the closure on the left side is very obvious. It seems like just the skin deeper in the nose area has attached with my cheek and the ones further out did not attach. From the side, it looks like I have a cut or disconnect. It gets even more obvious when I put on powder. The attachment itself looks very jagged. My PS said that it'll attach over time, but I don’t see it happening when there are no open wound. Will it really attach later and what can I do if it doesn’t?
