Front View of Nose Looks Worse. Is This Just Swelling?

I had rhinoplasty 7 weeks ago and the front view of my nose looks deformed now. The bridge/middle of my nose looks wide and doesn't flow. It also looks really skinny at the top now. I mentioned this to my doctor and he told me to squeeze my nose/bridge and mentioned that I might need to have them filed down. Do you think the line of my nose will even out? Is this just swelling? Surgery: breaking sides of nose, refine tip, dorsal hump removal, septum straightening.

It is hard to say how your nose will look several months from now.  Swelling takes several months to dissipate. But, I would review your concerns with your surgeon.
