Saddle nose deformity, overly narrow and crooked bridge?
It is too early to make a determination about the final result.
The nose can be swollen for up to a year or more. Swelling will depend upon the nature of maneuvers employed, presence of grafts or implants, thickness of skin, open vs closed, revision vs primary, etc.

First it has been ONKLY 8 days, just the swelling present DOES NOT allow a definitive opinion. Wait 3 months for 80% of the swelling to subside. As for a "saddle" deformity I really do not see one in these early post op posted photos...
