Revision Osteotomy on Right Side Only

Hello. I am a bit over a year post op and am scheduled for a revision in september. My right nasal bone is slightly flared compared to my left giving a bit of an asymmetrical look width wise. My dr agreed with me and our plan is to rebreak the right nasal bone in order to realign it in a straighter position. Is this a fairily straightforward procedure? My concern is that because nothing else is being done to the left side or tip - am I just going to be grossly swollen on the right side only?
