I had an operation to correct a lateral deviation in my nose, but the alar of the nose that was lifted to correct the deviation seems to be returning to its original position (it's moving little by little). One doctor told me that the alar couldn't be lifted because it would be left hanging there with no support. What is the solution?

Difficult to say without knowing exactly what was done and seeing the appearance of your nose. Generally speaking, to maintain the shape, cartilage support is needed. The lower part of the lateral (=outer aspect) of the ala does not contain cartilage and hence has the potential to move to a lower position.
