Uneven nostrils?

Most likely you had uneven nostrils before surgery, but this also may be exaggerated by the swelling. Give it time to settle down.

Too early to say wheter it will be permanent or not.  Swelling can distort the appearance at this time. It takes up to a year for all swelling to resolve.  Donald R. Nunn MD  Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
