Middle vault deformity
You have an inverted V deformity. It can be corrected using multiple different techniques such as spreader grafts, a saddle graft in the area of depression, refracturing the nasal bones to align them properly with the middle vault.

From the limited photographs, there appears to be an inverted V deformity, and wide nasal bones with a possible open roof deformity present. Osteotomies along with spreader grafts are required to address this issue In addition, there is still fullness in the supra- tip portion of the nose and a hanging columella. Best to look for a very experienced rhinoplasty surgeon for consistent results
You have an inverted "V" deformity and should wait at least one year before having a revision to correct other issues that might be necessary like in the tip.

There appears to be slight collapse in the middle 1/3 of your nose causing what is called an "inverted V". There is still swelling of the tip that will reduce over time. Therefore, it is not possible to make a full assessment right now. It is wise to wait.
