Alar reduction do's and don'ts
I would consider any scar gel used daily in these areas and proceed with deem abrasion. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your question. It is important to consult with your surgeon with any questions or concerns you may have. Scarring does in fact take up to a year to resolve. There are various topical silicone treatments and lasers that you could use to help minimize the scarring but again, i would consult with your surgeon to come up with the best option for you.
Good luck in your recovery!

Noticeable alarplasty scars
Best of luck
At 2 weeks, it is very early in the scar formation process. I would expect that at 3 months - you will see significant improvement in the appearance of your scar. Based on your current photos, I think there is a good chance that you will not require another revision. Hang in there!
