Hello,Two weeks after rhinoplasty is still very early in the recovery period to assess results. In my experience there is still 20 to 25 percent of the swelling still present at two weeks. As the swelling goes away it will do so asymmetrically (making the nose appear crooked) and will also vary in rate of reduction as time progresses. Have patience with the process and return to your surgeon to seek his reassurance.Kind Regards,
