Thank you for your question & photographs.It is important to consult with your surgeon with any questions or concerns you may have as they know your medical history and surgery best. I would schedule an appointment to have a physical examination of your nose performed by your surgeon. Your appearance will continue to refine. It may take up to a year for all swelling to resolve and for your nasal appearance to settle to a final outcome. Your doctor may prescribe you a Medrol dose pack (steroid) to help reduce the swelling. Healing is often unpredictable and delicate nasal bones may shift in healing. The outcomes may not be as expected. In some cases a revision may be recommended to refine your outcomes. I hope this helps.
Best of luck in your recovery!
