I'm unhappy with my asymmetrical nostrils and tip after open rhinoplasty. It's been 5 weeks. Will this get better? (Photo)

1 month post op, some advices:
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
You have asymmetric notching of left nasal ala. This could be corrected by placing an onlay graft over the lateral crus of the left lower lateral cartilage. Your nostrils might not look perfectly symmetric after this procedure but significant would be acheivable.
