Hello,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

How old are you?

When did you notice it first?
Did you have X-ray/ scan after the injury?

Can you send picture?
Did you consult doctor for it?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The septum I know has slightly deviated, however my biggest concern are the side nasal bones and seem to give a swollen look to my eyes and face. This hasn't been so prominent however now it's more clear

I've just attached the pic for you to view

Which side of the nose do you think swollen?

Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
The nose appears to be slightly swollen but it can be normal.
Septal deviation is not apparent externally.
Mild deviation can be there.
If you have noticed the swelling recently, I would suggest to take an examination by ENT doctor.
He can examine with scope or take X ray or scan.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.
