Will rhinoplasty scar go away?

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients acquire about whether their scar between their nostrils and on each side of their nostrils will fade or go away. The mid columellar scar for open rhinoplasty is one that will remain slightly red for the first several weeks after rhinoplasty. However, by 6 months, this scar should completely fade and be quite inconspicuous.

The alar scars for wide nostrils or wide alar base will also be slightly red and then fade around the same timeline. These are common with ethnic rhinoplasty.

All other rhinoplasty scars should be internal.
