Concerns regarding the appearance of my nose five days after rhinoplasty

  • It is difficult to tell from the photograph you've provided just what is concerning you. Based on the photographs I can't tell that anything seems out of order. I suggest you see your surgeon and let him evaluate your nose in a face-to-face basis.
