My bizarre bulbous nose; is there anything that can address the asymmetry?
Thank you for your question,
If you underwent a simple rhinoplasty or correction of nasal tip operation it means that your cartilage or bone structures are not excised. Since the manipulation is minimal; the edema will be minimal also. Nasal buffers will not be applied after these operations but only strip bandages. These strip bandages will be removed after 5th postoperative day. You can continue to do your daily work just after the procedure but we do not advise you heavy lifting or excessive exercise.
If you underwent rhinoplasty operation in which the bone and cartilage structures are also involved like concha hypertrophy, septum deviation or secondary rhinoplasty; then intranasal buffers will be applied in order to reduce the edema. These intranasal buffers will be removed after 5th postoperative day. You can continue to do your daily work just after the procedure but we do not advise you heavy lifting or excessive exercise. The more you rest, the faster your recovery will be.
Closed rhinoplasty, some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

Is there anything that can address the asymmetry?
You may be an excellent candidate for a rhinoplasty to address all of the concerns you listed above. Do your homework and seek out a consultation with a Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon or General Plastic Surgeon who has experience with rhinoplasty.

Bulbous tip, asymmetry
I get the suggestion that the tip is not really bulbous (wide, like a ball). However, there is no differentiation of the tip from the bridge and there is no projection of the tip, above the bridge line. In addition, the bridge may be too high, in the supratip area,
A full rhinoplasty would corrected these issues and the asymmetric nostrils ( no one else really notices this amount of asymmetry).

Rhinoplasty surgery may be considered for improving a bulbous, asymmetrical and overprojected nasal tip.
Consider consulting with several reputable rhinoplasty specialists so you could see what to expect after surgery. Goals may be a smaller, less prominent nasal appearance that is natural looking and less distracting.
