Compared to Caucasian noses, Asian noses sit closer to the face in the upper part of the
dorsum, between the eyes. Asian faces have their own beauty, but the
occasional patient wants to see a dorsum that is higher, away from the face,
more like a European nose.
This nose was augmented with an artificial material placed along the dorsum
to hold it out away from the face. She also had a drooping tip, which was
elevated during surgery.

Rhinoplasty gone wrong? Nostrils not even
Help, I had surgery on the 18th of May. Right away I noticed my nostrils were not even. When I went back to my doc the following day after surgury and addressed this with him he said my nostrils were probably uneven before the surgery, which is not the case. What should I do? What do you think ? I am panicking because it is now the 20th and although I know my nose is still swollen I don't believe my nostrils will change. What do you think?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Go back to your doctor again.
Asymmetric swelling can cause visible asymmetries that go away if it's truly only the swelling that's asymmetric.
But you're only a couple days after surgery! Your doctor is the one who knows what happened during surgery, and you're kind of stuck with him for support right now. Call him again for another evaluation/pep talk.
