In January this year I had an alarplasty using ear cartilage; however, my right nostril did not come down enough, so the surgeon did a second alarplasty in March this year. As a result of the second procedure, I developed a tiny necrotic wound between my columella and right nostril. My surgeon has debrided this wound twice so far, and has prescribed mupirocin ointment. My right nostril still has not come down to the same level as my left nostril, which came down a lot with my first alarplasty.
I have 2 questions: the wound is about the size of the number zero on a computer keyboard and looks like 0. How long before this wound closes fully, and would silikon 1000 help bring down the wound further? I don't want a temporary filler, because I'd like my nostril flare to be permanently fixed. I also don't want to do another alarplasty.
