Inverted V-Deformity After Rhinoplasty
An inverted V deformity is a upside down V shadow that occurs in the middle portion of the nose. It happens when the middle nasal cartilages (upper lateral cartilages) lose their connection or attachment with the nasal bones above, often during hump removal or rasping of the nasal bones. You do appear to have a mild inverted V deformity but you are still healing and need to be patient. If possible you should work with your surgeon to find a solution to the problem or consult a surgeon experienced in revision rhinoplasty.
