Hey all, I'm new here, and have been unhappy with my nose for quite some time. I have noticeably asymmetrical nostrils due to a columella that shifts from the top to the base. The columella is fairly centered at the top, but attaches to my upper lip off-center, and is therefore not in alignment with the cupid's bow of my upper lip. What worries me is that from my research it seems plastic surgeons can do little work with stuff like that, even with an open rhino - due to the fact that the columella is cut in the middle in an open rhino, it seems like they couldn't do much to the position of it at the base. Does this make any sense? My left nostril much larger and rounder, and my right very narrow and straight-looking because of this. I am finally ready to do something about it, and want to get a rhinoplasty, but am worried that it won't fix my issues and that there may simply not be any way to correct this problem.
Does anyone have any input, or know anything about this? I can attach some pics, but will have to do so tomorrow when I can get to my camera.
Also, are there really no good nose surgeons in Texas? I'm in San Antonio, but it seems like to get a really good rhinoplasty I'll definitely be having to travel to the coast or midwest!
