Crooked nose at 9 months after rhinoplasty
It is understandable that you are concerned. Changes after rhinoplasties vary with every patient and what you are experiencing is not uncommon. What is quite promising is the fact that you mentioned that your nose is "significantly less crooked after your procedure"!
Nonetheless, it is important to keep in mind that it is early to pass a final judgment. Usually, a year is required before formulating how your nose will be, but longer with a thick skin. Even then, your nose will keep shaping itself to complement your face for better results in the years to come.
My best recommendation at the moment is to be patient, allow nature to take its course and edema subsides for better results. There is no doubt that once the swelling resolves, more definition and shape will be achieved and you should be happier with the results.
Also, it is important that you keep communicating with your surgeon and work as a team together to achieve the best results possible.
Congratulations on your surgery and remain positive!
