The overall improvement with your noise looks excellent. I would discuss your concerns to your surgeon and see what he or she says about them. Wait 1 year before considering a revision.
From what I can tell it looks as though you've gotten a pretty good result. There will be further changes and I would not consider a revision until a least A year Has past. If the results are close I would suggest you leave well enough alone.
Please wait an year before you judge if you need a revision. Your nose looks overlla good and would not jump into a revision surgery unnecessarily, Swelling after the procedure takes sometimes up to a year to resolve so I would wait.
You should wait at least a year before considering a revision.
