Revision rhinoplasty for nose healing crooked after initial rhinoplasty? (Photos)

I've had lots of complications with an initial rhinoplasty. I noticed when the splints were in that my nose seemed very one sided. Prior to the nose job my nose was just bulbous and I had a dorsal hump. As I've healed (post op 4 mo) my nose seems to be crooked, and my dorsal hump seems to have grown back. My nose also seems fattier than it initially was. Left side feels like a rock towards the tip which I didn't have prior to rhinoplasty. What's the solution since I am so prone to scarring? :(

Crooked Nose 4 Months after Rhinoplasty

Your nose may change, hopefully Improve, as healing progresses over the next 6-8 months. If you're not satisfied at that time consult with your surgeon or a revision rhinoplasty specialist. Based on these pictures I suspect changes will be necessary.

Crooked nose after rhinoplasty?

The nose takes one year to fully heal. Therefore waiting additional six months and then See a revision rhinoplasty specialist if you are dissatisfied with your surgeon. Look for a surgeon who does many revisions with natural results.
