Is this normal post-op

Is this normal to be this crooked 3 months post op from tip revision, septoplasty, and rhinoplasty or am I overreacting? I still have numbness and feel scar tissue in the tip. Will this eventually settle on the right side or should I be concerned?

Dear BJ,

Healing after rhinoplasty surgery takes at least a year. Continue follow up with your surgeon and follow his/her guidance. Good luck!

It is hard to be able to tell anything from these pictures but I do not see anything wrong. Follow your surgeon's advice.

You are not as crooked as you appreciate from the photos your provided. As mentioned by the others, be patient and after a year, you can critique your outcome with your surgeon.

Recovery period after rhinoplasty surgery at least 6 months-1 year. From your given photos your tip may still swelling and you need to wait for the real nose shape or if you very concerned please ask your surgeon for further advice and treatment.
