My results have changed for the worse. I haven't hit it or done anything that might have caused damage that I'm aware. I'm really depressed. My surgeon recommended I put a cotton ball in the attic of the nostril which is higher to presumably make it sag and give symmetry. However, I don't want the trip to droop any more. Can I please have another opinion. The pictures show my results immediately after surgery and 2 months after.
THis should settle using your thumb on the inside right nostril rim and indx finger inside gripping gently and pulling straight down and stretching - 10 reps 10 times per day and it will likely correct - scar tissue gets worse by around 8-12 weeks then starts to relax
Was your rhinoplasty open or closed? Many times cartilage can warp when placed against the forces of scar tissue. Molding the nose may have a limited effect but is worth trying. Continue to keep in close contact with your surgeon and he or she will create a plan over the course of the next 6-12 months that may involve a revision.
