Removing this large hump created a dramatic change in her profile.  The change in the hump's appearance commands so much of your attention that you have to look closely to see that after surgery the tip of her nose is closer to her face, and the nose is a little shorter, too.

Questioner: Asymmetry & hanging columella. Interests: Tim Woolford, Julian De Silva, Julian Rowe Jones, Lucian Ion
I am 7 yrs post primary rhinoplasty. I was looking for my slight bump amd bulbous tip to be addressed. Immediately after my cast was removed 1 wk after my op, it was clear I had been left with an asymmetrical and hanging collumella (my natural nose did not have this). Its been 7 yrs & I'd like revision. My main concern is my hanging & aysemetric collumella, I feel my tip is bulbous in comparison to my thin bridge with large projection. I have very thick, oily skin with large pores on my nose.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: It's more than just the columella
Hi,
It's not just that the columella is hanging, because your columella protrudes downward only a millimeter or two down beyond your nostril edges.

It's that the entire tip of your nose is low, the nose is very long, and best would be to raise the tip, much more than just elevating the columella. 

You are correct that the tip is somewhat wide, too.

See the first patient in the attached video -- she has a nose with some similarities to yours.
