Question: I had nose surgery to remove a hump on my nose. The results were initially good but then one side seemed to have collapsed. Why did this happen and what needs to be done to fix it?
Answer: You need to talk to your own plastic surgeon to see what happened since he is the one who has examined you but what you described is not that rare and it is due to scar tissue pulling the thin upper lateral cartilages inwards as the nose heals over the first 1-3 years. The correction involves placement of an onlay cartilage graft or a spreader graft on that side and may also involve redoing the osteotomies to give your nose more symmetry.
