Your photos show the whole lower half of your nose shifted to your left, asymmetric tip cartilages and bulging of the outer edge of the open rhinoplasty incision scar. You will need redo surgery to correct this but it is safest for you to wait till 1 year after the last procedure. You will need septal work to straighten the nose and tip cartilage surgery to make the nostrils more symmetric. It is unclear from the limited information in your post if these goals are achievable. You need to get copies of the operative report and photos from your most recent surgery to show prospective surgeons when you consult with them for your next surgery.
