Does my columella look normal 35 days post-op? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 8
All due respect, I don't think you can have your primary surgeon revise your columella. If he thinks this is normal, I wouldn't trust him to operate on it again. Absolutely not.
The good news is that, in skilled careful hands, it can probably be improved rather substantially, without harming the rest of your nose.
-the closure of the columella is not accurate, there seems to be a step and a displaced closure, and this is difficult to understand because the overal result of your nose is quite good, so your surgeon is supposed to know how to close a columella, maybe an assistant or trainee did the closure?
-something is sticking out or bending or protruding there, did you get any septoplasty, septal lengthening or tip grafting there?
Give it time, no less than 6-8 months, if persistant I am sure your surgeon will correct this free of cost, it is a major defect spoiling an, otherwise, brilliant result.
I recommend you manage this delicate and embarrasing matter with highest and best polite manner with your doctor, he'll be understanding for sure.

It would be best to speak to your surgeon and organise a meeting. I suspect a revision might be needed at some point in the future.
