Dented Nose after swelling has gone down
rhinoplasty

I had rhinoplasty a year ago and I have noticed a long line down the left side of my nose, feels slightly dented as well. The shadow is really bothering me, is there a quick and easy way to have this fixed?

Hi, I have this exact same problem and don't know what to do. I've had fillers injected twice but the effect is not long lasting. I'm afraid to have surgery again and make it even worst.

What did you do? Have you solved this?
