The ear can actually look a little bigger from the side view after surgery, because before the operation, when it is sticking out away from the head, we see it edge-on, as in the before photo above.  After surgery, when the ear is flatter against the head, we see more of the ear from this side view, and the ear can appear to be larger.

Check out his hair in his after picture.  I had his parents clean the incision line with hydrogen peroxide after surgery, and I think they bleached him out a little.

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.
(Questioner submitted photos)

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.
