Crooked Nose After Rhinoplasty? (photo)

I had rhinoplasty done two weeks ago to remove the bump on my nose, my nose was not crooked, now it looks completely crooked to me. Which I think is due to the fact that doctor did not put the cast correctly, which you can see from the pictures. Also there is a bone like swelling on the bridge of my nose, is it possible that this swelling will stay permanently, it does not seem to go down with the time.

Crooked nose after rhinoplasty

Looking at your photos, you are still very swollen. Swelling can give the appearance of asymmetry and irregularities, so it will be necessary to wait until you are further along in your healing before judging the end result. It is too soon to tell. It can take 18-24 months to see the final result of your surgery.  I would recommend speaking with your surgeon regarding any immediate post-operative concerns. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck with the remainder of your recovery.

The nose certainly looks swollen on the left side, which may be why it looks crooked.  It is common to see swelling that may be worse on one side or the other, especially this early.  It's definitely too early to tell at 2 weeks.  You should probably have your surgeon take a look if you haven't already.
