This woman's strong nasal tip cartilages contributed to several of her concerns about the appearance of her nose.  The tip was too wide and prominent, with a small dent between the tip cartilages.  The nose was longer than we wanted it, and it was too projecting.  She also had excessive columellar show.

All of those areas were addressed during her operation.

Questioner: Uneven nostrils after 2 rhinoplasties. What can be done?
After two rhinoplasty surgeries. my daughter's nostrils are uneven, and she is self conscious. Her nostrils were not uneven prior to rhinoplasties. To correct them, would she require a third rhinoplasty with general anesthesia? Would it be as hard a recovery? What can be done to fix them?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Maybe, maybe, she could have a revision of only the columellar scar
In general, that view, the bottom view, is the least important view after a rhinoplasty (or before), because it's a view that people generally don't see. Achieving excellent symmetry in that view is unrealistic, and unnecessary.

Having said that, however, it seems that much of the asymmetry is caused by a bulge of scar tissue on her left side, at the location where perhaps the incision was made for an open rhinoplasty. Maybe revising that scar would help meaningfully, with no risk to the entire rest of her nose.
