Multiple facial trauma. Any suggestions? (photos)

7 weeks ago, I had a horrible bike accident, I hit my face in the tree and had multiple facial fractures in the left side of face. My doctor said no need to surgery, it will be fine after months. But my left eye looking wide n cheekbone feels bent inward. As 28 year old guy i am worried about my face symmetry... feel depressed...i want know it will be fine after some time? I also attached my 3d facial CT scan. Thanks!

You will need to be seen by a maxillofacial or craniofacial plastic surgeon.
Seven weeks out is troublesome, but you can be helped.

You have bilateral zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures as well as a left body of the mandible fracture and will rquire open recuction and internal fixation of the fractures under general anesthesia. I prefer doing this surgery within 2 weeks of the injury to prevent malunion and/or nonunion of the fractures as well as  malocclusion

You seem to have multiple facial fractures.
You need to be seen by a Maxillofacial surgeon for extensive surgical repair

I'm really sorry to hear about your accident. It sounds and looks  pretty bad. You do have both a jaw fracture as well as a cheek bone fracture.  I would consider getting perhaps a second opinion. The jaw fracture at the very least should be repaired.
