It is concerning that this was not communicated but I am sure it was performed with good intent and your best interests in mind. Photos are needed to advise further please
Two weeks out is early
While it is concerning that you did not discuss incision locations prior to surgery, alar reduction is often necessary for certain cases.
It is not likely you have permanent nerve damage from this, but some temporary weakness or numbness is common. This should resolve over the coming months.
Without examination I can't say much about the asymmetry. It is possible that some of this will resolve as the swelling goes down. This question is best addressed with your surgeon.
I hope this helps!
