Will the nostril asymmetry after Septorhinoplasty go away? (photos)
Doctor Answers 3
Thanks to share your concern .The more obvious asymmetry you are seeing now is because of the post surgery swelling .it is quiet normal you have to wait atleast 6 months to see the results.Lot of nasal dynamic changes occur during the healing process.hence do give enough time to heal and then decide .
Nostril asymmetry immediately after rhinoplasty- can be frustrating and scary.
Don't worry yet. Rhinoplasty takes 1 year to fully heal. You will likely see some changes. Believe it nor not, the base view (view of the nose from below) is not commonly a view seen by others, so nostril asymmetry often goes unnoticed unless your head is tipped back. This doesn't mean it will not bother you, but hopefully there are enough positive changes to your nose after rhinoplasty that will help you remain positive throughout the healing process. Good luck! -Randolph Capone, MD, FACS
Noses take time for sweling to go
You have a lot of healing to do but once the healing is at the 6 to 9th month your nostrils will be similar to their pre operative status. Be patient. My Best, Dr Commons
