Considering Micro Needling for Columella Scar After 5th Rhinoplasty (South Korea)

I am 1 year post op from my 5th rhinoplasty. All...

I am 1 year post op from my 5th rhinoplasty. All were open incision.

I am satisfied with the shape of my nose but I have one problem. The columella has a indented scar that is noticeable even with concealer. What is the best way to correct or improve the indentation on my columella? (Mederma and silicone sheets haven't been effective so Im seeking other solutions) Will micro needling induce collagen so that the indentation will fill in? Is the skin on the columella different in the amount of collagen it can produce? Are dermaroller's effective for this area?

Micro needling for Columella scar after rhinoplasty?

Dr. Jong

Dr. corrected my enormous rib cartilage'd nose from a well known doctor in America. After several unsuccessful rhinoplasty surgeries, Dr. really matched my ideal nose to look natural, elegant and exactly what I wanted.

Hi, I had a similar problem and a bit of Hialuronic Acid Fillers in that area have worked well..

Micro needling is a very good technique for collagen formation induction, but I am not sure that it will do much in your case. Because of the amount of scar tissue and little subcutaneous tissue in the columella. Based on the photos and your history of five operations it appears that you would be best served by having a scar revision with possibly some cartilage grafting under the scar. Best of luck!

I just had a scar excision done for columella scar. It was done under local anesthetic and was not painful. I am about 15 days post op but the scar already looks better than the one I had before. Hoping it will be as surgeon said to expect near invisible scar. Please don't waste your time money and pain on other treatments for this issue. I hope this helps someone.
