Open Roof Deformity after Rhinoplasty
Thank you for the question. It does not appear that you have much residual swelling and swelling of the dorsum tends to resolve fairly quickly. It does appear on the front view that you may have an open roof deformity. Lateral and sometimes medial osteotomies are often necessary correct the open roof created by a dorsal hump reduction. I would not recommend correction at this point but if the anterior view still persists at 6 months I would recommend the osteotomies to correct the issue. One of my before and after photos is of a patient who had this exact issue after a rhinoplasty with another surgeon and it was relatively simple to correct with the secondary surgery.
