I Had Open Rhino Two Weeks Ago and Now my Nose is Crooked and Uneven Will This Go Away? (photo)

Before my surgery I had a droopy nose and indentation on the right side of my face. Two weeks ago I had open rhino and my tip was raised and bone shave, now my tip is crooket to the right side.Inside the right nastril I can feel a little bump like scar tissue. The columellar is pointing to the right and it looks really bad. I also want to mention that my ps took off my cast on the fourth day and I didn't have tampons in my nose.Is this just sweeling or will it stay like this pointy to the right?
Open Rhino Two Weeks Ago and Now Nose is Crooked
Swelling 2 weeks post surgery is normal and can create an asymmetrical look initially. It is too early to judge the results. Express your concern to your surgeon so he/she can monitor you properly.
Crooked and Uneven Nose 2 Weeks Post Rhinoplasty
Asymmetrical, temporary swelling 2 weeks after rhinoplasty may cause your nose to look crooked and uneven but the best way to answer your question is to see your surgeon. If your columella and tip remain deviated, a revision will be necessary.
Two weeks post rhinoplasty is to early to determine final result
