You appear to have an asymmetry of your tip that is leading to the asymmetric nostrils. Sometimes cartilage grafts are used to straighten the tip and correct these issues. Best wishes, Dr. T.
Asymmetric nostrils after rhinoplasty
The main issue is-Is this from swelling that is still resolving, or is it a true asymmetry that will need correction.Because swelling takes many months to resolve, you will need to wait at least about to 6 months to see if things change. If the asymmetry persists then the cause of the asymmetry needs to be identified and resolved. Is it from incision placement, or from tip cartilage repositioning, did you have an open or closed rhinoplasty, was the base of the nose reduced, and/or was the septum position altered, were the tip cartilages trimmed?Best of luck.
While nostril asymmetry is the most difficult area of asymmetry to correct, in most cases it can be improved during rhinoplasty. While perfect symmetry is not attainable, improved symmetry usually is.However, you are still early in your recovery period and the nose is expected to be quite swollen at this point.The swelling during this time is rarely symmetric. One side will always resolve more quickly than the other. The majority of the swelling will resolve in 3-6 months, and will continue to resolve as your nose heals for up to 1-2 years. You have not reached your final shape as the nose will continue to heal and reduce in size for up to a year. Once it does reach its final shape you may be more pleased with the appearance of your nose.
3 months post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for enquire.Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
