Why is the Bottom of my Nose Twisted? (photo)

Is this my ps's fault? Or is it just uneven swelling? I am 3 months post op. Should i get a revision in a year?

Rhinoplasty Revision

Yes, give yourself time to heal before considering a revision procedure. Some of your concerns will straighten themselves out within six months to a year. After that time if the area is still of big concern to you, then I recommend considering the revision procedure. “Dr. D”

Twisted lower nose

If you are twisted at the lower end( caudal) area it may be secondary to the septum that is crooked. At this point, you will have to wait a good 6 mos to a year to have it revised if it bothers you.

Twisted nose at 3 months.

You need to wait another 6-9 months and then have a revision of the nose is still twisted.
