Columella not aligned and uneven nostrils 3 weeks post op. Any suggestions? (photos)

It is hard to say from the photograph what you are describing as "uneven nostrils". The columella forms the medial border of the nostril and you are still soon after surgery and likely have swelling. It is also hard to say without seeing a preoperative photograph how your nostrils looked before surgery. The final appearance of a nose after rhinoplasty won't really be known for several months and sometimes up to a year if it was a secondary rhinoplasty. Close follow up with your board certified plastic surgeon is key! Best, MMT
