The columella is the skin-and-cartilage area that separates the nostrils. If it is excessively full-looking, it is referred to as a hanging columella. How does one end up with a hanging columella?
A hanging columella can be congenital. More often, however, it comes about as a result of an error during primary rhinoplasty – while fixing certain issues, other issues were created. In these situations, revision rhinoplasty is necessary.
Hanging columella revision rhinoplasty should only be performed by a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Hervè Gentile. Dr. Gentile has the rhinoplasty experience needed to make sure your nose is looking great after the procedure. Contact our office today to set up a consultation.
