Horizontal crease under my nose when I smile after rhinoplasty?

After my rhinoplasty a horizontal crease appeared under my nose when I smile. Any doctor out there who had successful results of fixing this in a secondary rhinoplasty? I heard it cannot be fixed, but I also heard it is possible. I am confused. Who had success with this specific problem? I cannot find information or before and after picture about this on plastic surgeon's websites. I am not happy with the shape of my nose either. The bridge needs to built up and the projection has to be changed.

Recommend Following up with your surgeon

This horizontal crease can often go away on its own up to 1 year after surgery as the swelling comes down.  I recommend you following up with your surgeon to discuss your healing process.  If it continues after 1 year, your surgeon may choose to perform a minor procedure to try and correct this.
