External changes of the nose after septoplasty
The septum is the major support structure of the nose. As such, the operation on the septum can cause a great deal of swelling. it is difficult to know if what we see in the photograph of your nose is just swelling or some other issue...and we do not see a pre-operative photograph. I would check in with your surgeon, let him or her know about your concerns, and then be patient. Healing can take 6 months to a year and everyone heals differently.
"Crookedness" after rhinoplasty not normal.
Hi! Your nose does look a little asymmetric (crooked), but it has only been one month since surgery. So be optimistic. It may resolve. If it looks crooked in 6 months, and it really bothers you, then you may need a revision.
Slight crookedness and swelling after nose surgery
After a septoplasty and rhinoplasty, you should expect to have swelling throughout your nose. You should notice some significant changes immediately after the surgery, however your final results will only be apparent after your swelling has resolved which is in 6 to 8 months after surgery. At this time, it's best to be patient and to await your final results.

Crooked Nose after Rhinoplasty
You are only one month after extensive rhinoplasty. It is normal to have residual swelling at this time. The resolution of that swelling is frequently asymmetrical, giving the illusion of a crooked nose. In six to eight months you'll know if this is just temporary. Keep in touch with your surgeon.
