Had my closed rhinoplasty 4 weeks ago now and i still feel it looks bent..my bridge is'nt flat or straight, i feel it goes from my forehead and not my nose, one nostril was bent from before and is straighter but surly should'nt still look like this? I am considering going under again as i am not happy with the results. how long do i have to wait?
Is This Normal for my Nose to Look Bent? is This Swelling?

Swelling following rhinoplasty
4 weeks is soon after your surgery, and you are experiencing swelling. In general, 70% of the swelling is resolved after the first 3 months and the remainder goes down over time. The final result may not be evident for 18-24 months following your procedure. It is important to be patient during the healing process, as it will take some time. I would recommend visiting your surgeon in the meantime. He/she knows the extent of your surgery and exactly what was performed. I would recommend waiting some time and seeing how you heal before considering a touch-up procedure. I hope this helps, and good luck!

Nose should not look bent one month after rhinoplasty.
You may well need a revision, but I strongly recommend that you wait at least six months, and then get two other opinions.
4 weeks after rhinoplasty
Without an exam, it is difficult to say what is going on. Right now I am sure you have a lot of swelling and you have to be patient.
