Why is my nose changing so drastically? (Photo)

Why does the nose change with time?
#1. You may have developed a small amount of scar over the area of your bony takedown near the top 1/3 of your nose. If so try taping at night to see if compression helps.
#2. You may have developed supra tip scar which is accentuating the depression in your mid vault. If this is the case this should go away with time. Possibly a dilute steroid injection can improve this area. This makes sense especially if you have thick skin. I see this issue all the time and in nearly all cases it resolves.
#3. You mid vault may have sunk after the hump removal.
If this persists for greater than a 9 months then a small procedure can be done to correct any and all of these issues. Be patient and make sure to inform your surgeon of your worries.
