Tight Scar Inside the Nose After Rhinoplasty? (photo)

Hello, I had an open Rhinoplasty on April 29 and there are two things that keep me concerned. First of all, the end of the nose is not symetric , offcourse, left side of the nose seems to be still swelling more, and the top of the nose is hard BUT, there is a scar inside the nose that is keeping the nostrill tight and a little bit uncomfortable. could be the nose so assimetric because of the scar? And, when could I fix it? not earlier than six months? Thank you in advice

From the photos it looks like you are having alar collapse on the right side. Go see your surgeon and get an explanation of the cause. At 1 month, it could be asymmetrical swelling
