Uneven Nostrils, Bad Nose Job! - Toronto, ON

My doctor did alar base reduction for me, but on one side he stitched it too tight so I have a big scar on the outside of one of my nostrils now. I am very self-conscious because of it, and wish I had never gone for this rhinoplasty!

I'm sorry you're not happy with your results. You might want to get some more opinions on the scar revision, or considering posting a question in RealSelf's doctor community (with a photo). Seems like there'd be something that could be done.

Also, we'd love a few more details about why you were seeking a rhinoplasty and what happened...

This doc did not acknowledge the mistake he made. He does not charge anything for the initial appointment, so I consulted him first and ended up immediately booking an appointment too. I wish I had done more research and gone with a rhinoplasty specialist... I am very much in distress because of this, I have consulted other surgeons but they say if anything more is done to the scar, it may scar more.
