Hey Dor3mi~~Hi Wishingstar,
I had open rhino about 2.5 weeks ago. The scar on the columella is barely visible. I have to really look closely in the mirror to see it. Otherwise, it is very faint and I am sure it will not be noticeable as time passed but not sure about completely invisible.
I've read online about using a scar minimizing gel called Kelo Cote. I've just start using it so I can't say whether it is effective or not yet. You may want to look it up.
When I had a much better surgeon and used an implant strut, it healed. Now, with septal shield graft, no.
Have you tried kenacort? I injected kenacort into my lower lid and upperlid I also used kelocote to further reduce the scarring more. Kenacort was the one that did most of the work tho. It dissolved the scar tissue.I have very terrible scars on left side.my right side scars is ok.i had open rhino about 18 months ago.
It depends on if you have your columnellar strut (I can see my scar now because the strut is pressing against the skin...so awful) and if your surgeon is skilled and gives you a good anti scar gel.
