Thank you for your question and I'm sorry you're having concerns after your surgery. If you had more grafts placed on the left, you can certainly have more swelling there, pushing the nostril down. 2 weeks is very early to make any judgment. Let the healing and skin tightening take its course. Discuss your concerns with your surgeon, as they would know best what was done and what can be expected. If your issues persist after a year, a touch up revision can be considered. My favorite method to bring the ala down is to use composite grafts from the ear. Be patient, and good luck!
