Horizontal crease under my nose when I smile after rhinoplasty?

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.
