Will my Nostrils Change? (photo)

16 days passed after my rhinoplasty, & my nostrils are not the same & they make my nose look a little bit crooked. I'm really worried.. before removing the stitch I told my Dr about that & he answered that they will chang,,, but I don't feel positive :(

Nostrils will change as swelling goes down after rhinoplasty

You are still very early after your surgery.  Your nose will continue to change as the swelling goes down.  As this resolves, you will notice your nostrils changing also.  Almost no one has completely symmetric nostrils, but your should become closer to that with time.  Hang in there!
