Nasal asymmetry after rhinoplasty
Please follow-up with your surgeon to discuss your concerns and adhere to his or her post-operative instructions. Nasal symmetries after rhinoplasty, especially shortly after the surgery including after 10 weeks, are not uncommon. They are frequently caused by asymmetric swelling, which is typically temporary. Some surgeons inject steroids in the office if indicated or teach compression exercises at home to fine-tune the nasal appearance. Please refrain from doing anything, though, unless you are specifically instructed by your surgeon. All you may need to do is be a bit more patient and let things heal. After 3-6 months, you will have a much better sense what the final result may be. Best wishes!

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.
