1 month post op, some advices:
It's too early to make value judgments with only 1 month after a rhinoplasty.
Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.

Thank you for including your photos. You have had multiple nasals surgeries and this can account for the nostril asymmetry. It is early in your post operative period and after multiple revisions in my experience the swelling takes longer to subside. Rib cartilage is often used for revision rhinoplasty, however it does have a risk of warping which may cause some dorsal asymmetry as well. Be patient and visit with your rhinoplasty surgeon to ask questions. Thank you for posting your question!
