However you said that no "No grafts of any kind" were used. You also said a large dorsal hump was removed. This situation usually requires spreader grafts to control the position of the internal valve. The valve is usually destroyed during a large hump removal. It may be that we are now seeing a narrowing of the dorsal cartilaginous vault, due to internal valve collapse. This narrowing is visible as the step off, on 3/4 view.
Anyway, wait a full year before any diagnosis and definitive treatment is considered
