Correcting uneven nostrils after a base reduction.
Bringing a deviated columella to midline may improve a bulk of the difference between two different sized nostrils. This is only true if the columella is moved to the side of the bigger nostril.
To improve an over-reduced nostril, it may be necessary to use composite grafts (cartilage and skin). They will increase a small nostril, but they are typically visible on close inspection.
I recommend consulting with someone who specializes in revision rhinoplasty. They can discuss what techniques may improve your situation as well as the risks involved. You'll need to understand all of this before moving forward with revision surgery. Safety comes first!
