Asymmetrical and Bruised Tip After Graft

I had revision rhino 19 days ago; spreader grafts were placed, as well as graft(s) in the tip to help breathing. Now tip is asymmetrical & one side is discolored & indented. Should I expect this to resolve over time? I am really worried & after a friend commented about my nose appearing crooked & flat on one side I am considering hibernation!! I don't see my surgeon for another week, but am desperate not to have a 3rd revision. I worry about my fragile nasal tissue & my husb would be unhappy.

19 days post surgery is still very early for you to judge the results of your surgery - remain patient and follow up with your surgeon
