This a common outcome in a rhinoplasty. Most are not visible. Imagine your nose as a long rectangular tent. If you take off the top, you now have two side walls with a separation between them. Cuts made in the side walls of the tent, the cuts in the bone of a rhinoplasty…lateral osteotomies… that allow the walls to tilt in toward each other. Sometimes a small gap is left. This is the open roof. I would venture to say that it can be felt in a lot of rhinoplasties but is not visible in most. If you have thin skin, it can show. To improve it often requires a crushed cartilage graft and some temporalis fascia, the coating over the muscle above your ear… sounds worse than it is. You are only 8 months out, too early to think about revision surgery. Who modifies it is up to you.
FAQ » I had rhinoplasty eight months ago and I now have an open roof deformity. Can you explain why this happens? Should my original surgeon be responsible for fixing this?
