Nasal implant inflammed or misplaced by doctor?

Got a rhino-revision after 48 days.Old nose was round and Dr used 3mm-L-shape silicon.After bandages came off felt my bridge was too high.I had no dip between my forehead and nose.I looked like avatar from the side.When you touch my bridge,you can feel the silicon starting right under my forehead.Dr said he didn't start it high and that it was inflammed.If the swelling doesn't go down he will have to re-operate.After 48 days,he decided it was best to clean out my nose/put in new silicon.Will take off bandage tomorrow.My concern is,was it really inflammed or did he mess up?Please help!
