Correcting Asymmetry After Multiple Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures?

I had plastic surgery 5 months ago. I had chin augmentation, Rhinoplasty, and Liposuction on the face. After the surgery I look very uneven, which is extremely evident when I smile. My nostrils are positioned differently, have a different shape, a fleshy bump grew on my right nose tip (doesn't subside), right jowl area looks indented. I'm satisfied with my left side, but not the right. I took photos from different angles as I think one photo might not be able to address my problem.

What surgery could I get to make my right look like the left?

Asymmetry after an aesthetic operation is not unusual. Most of the time these cosmetic problems disappear with time. Surgical tampering at too early a time can interrupt the normal healing process and possibly create irreversible problems.

When healing has been completed (no changes are observed over a broad period of time eg. 3 months), anything you are dissatisfied with should be discussed with your surgeon. He should have discussed his policies for revision with you before undertaking the operation.
