Dent/Cave in on side of nostril after Rhinoplasty. Will it rise back up/go away?
rhinoplastynostrilscar

I am 5 weeks post Rhinoplasty and one side of my nose has a dent and slightly caved in. I think it may be from the internal scar tissue as it is tight. The other side is normal but is puffy and swollen.

Will this dent/cave-in, rise back up or be released? I know I am early in the healing process but want to know of others who have experienced this issue and the side of their nose returned to normal? I need honesty and hope!

Pictures are attached.

Thanks!
