It is difficult to evaluate your nose 3 weeks after surgery. As you suggest, the swelling may resolve asymmetrically. Hopefully the open roof has been corrected. Be patient, wait another 6 months, and share your concerns with your surgeon. We would like to help you, but that's impossible without examining you.
