Asymmetrical Swelling or Will Revision be Necessary?

Based on the single picture you submitted and without the opportunity to examine you I feel that you probably will need a minor revision. Having said that, wait another 6 months before making any decisions re future treatment; it may improve.

                 The nose could still be maturing 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 etc.

Indent on nose swelling?

It is difficult to tell for sure from your photo because it is blurry.  But I will say that you probably still have a lot of swelling.

Your indent may improve or not since the final swelling will not be gone for another 6 months. See your surgeon since he knows what he did.
