1 week post op, some advices:

Thanks for the question.
It's too early to make value judgments with only eight days 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.

Time will tell

Unfortunatelly there is nothing you can do at this time, other than wait. As swelling subsides the nose may get straighter or it may worsen. At 6 months you'll be able to critically analyze your result. Good luck.
