No change after Rhinoplasty
Hang in there! You are only 1 month out from your procedure. It is very common to have significant swelling at this point which is hiding your true nose shape. The swelling can take up to a year to settle down fully. I would continue to follow closely with your surgeon and follow their recommendations.

One month post op
At one month post op, remember that you will still have swelling over the area. Granted, I completely understand and share your concerns as by this point there should have been an improvement in the area. Have you spoken to the operating surgeon? They would know how things looked "on the table" and be better able to guide you through the recovery process, particularly if you are starting to make scar tissue over the site of the hump removal. Usually you want to wait at least 9-12 months before a revision as the nose takes time to heal. Best of luck.
