Revision rhinoplasty a palpable columella strut
If the appropriate time has elapsed your surgeon can modify the strut or remove completely. Be patient, with time, most of your concerns may improve.
If a strut was applied it was because your nose required it. Most columella struts that are employed are from either your nose or ear cartilage. This may be supported to your nasal spine, which is bony. Movement of cartilage over this bony prominence will create sounds.
Return to your surgeon and discuss your concerns. He may offer you alternative techniques to improve your nose that do not require a strut.
