I had alarplasty as part of the rhinoplasty in 2010. While I am happy with the rhino/alarplasty, I am not with the scarring left in the creases on either side. I had sutures and when removed, a few were missed and not detected until a follow up. So some of the problem are a few tiny holes in each crease but in other areas of the incision small parts of skin are not completely flat. The Dr. gave me a few injections and told me to keep rubbing the sides but it still looks kind of rough. Help.
How Can I Get the Creases in the Ala Complete Flat (And That Smile on One Side of my Nose Isn't Completely There)?

Alar Crease Scar Touch Up
I would recommend you consider possible dermabrasion of this area to help blend the scars.
At now two years, I doubt that the scars will improve. It is a bit unusual for the alar base reduction scars to be a problem.
