Nostril symmetry after rhinoplasty

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients are concerened about nostril assymetry.  This can occur due to a deviated septum or a twisted crooked nose.  Correcting nostril assymetry can be tricky as this is soft tissue. All the incisoins during rhinoplasty are around the nostrils.  Incisions contract as they heal and this may lead to some minor assymetry in the nostrils during the healing process.  Patience is essential postoperatively during rhinoplasty to allow time for things to heal appropriately.
