After septoplasty, I found out there is a big scar left on my nasal septum, it is around the my left nostril. So will the shape of my external nose change cause of the scar?
Would the Scar That Left on my Nasal Septum Influence the Shape of my External Nose?

Septoplasty scars do not affect the shape of the nose
Your septoplasty - done inside your nose - requires an incision. This leaves an internal scar. This scar over the septum - the internal support cartilage of the nose - should not affect the outside appearance of your nose.
