What happened to my nose? I had a septoplasty with fascia placed over my septum & tip only cartilage grafts placed (Photo)

I'm 5 weeks post-op. Had an inverted V, deviated septum & bone spur repaired. Dr placed ear fascia as a last min decision at the end of my surg. By day3 outer splint felt like a vice, I was in AGONY, told my dr at splint removel how bad & she said really. As splint came off I was devistaed, still am. There was a HUGE dorsal hump (straight nose prior to surg). Bridge has not stopped hurting I've told the dr from day 1, dr says its swelling. Could it be fractured? Would a scan be helpful?

Though you might be too early for revision rhinoplasty, but the problem may need to be addressed early. Need a very experienced rhinoplasty surgeon. Recommend
