You can have scar revision

The scar can be improved by scar revision. Pleas send pictures for better evaluation.The scar revision can remove the old scar and also change the nostril shape if needed at the same time.

You can have significant improvement of your scar. If there is very visible scarring, scar revision may be necessary.

Other methods that can significantly improve your  scar include, Dermabrasion, Microdermabrasion, or a variety of Laser treatments.

Scar revision for visible scars after nostril reduction

I have found that dermabrasion or radiofrequency skin ablation can sometimes be useful in this regard. Occasionally scar revision is required.

Maybe yes and maybe no.

It depends on how the skin was removed and then how it was reattached. See an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon and he will be able to tell you if it can be surgically repaired.
